LPA Inter~Club PDI Competition

Sunday afternoon, (9th May) Grimsby PS and fifteen other LPA affiliated clubs participated in the LPA Inter~Club PDI Competition, which took place over Zoom due to the current Covid19 restrictions.

The judge was David Gibbins, ARPS, APAGB, EFIAP, BPE5, CPAGB/AV and each club had entered 9 images, with a 10th print in case of a tied result.

We are very happy to announce that Grimsby PS gained a very worthy second place to Deepings. The images shown were all of a high quality and David had a tough job awarding the points out of 20 for each image.

Over 50 screens logged in to watch, and as some of those included couples, this was a very good attendance.

To their credit, Deepings were 12 points ahead of us when the final scores were tallied ~ we aim to do better in any future competitions.

I've always had an interest in photography, starting too many years ago than I care to remember. I have a variety of cameras in working order ~ pinhole, medium format, 35mm and digital. With working full time, there never seems to be enough free time to properly indulge in using them. 10 years or so ago, I took my first (and only!) "A" level ~ in photography. I was the only one on the course to only do darkroom work throughout. My own preferences lie with film and alternative processes ~ Digital is fine for most things, but for me it hasn't got as much "soul"! I enjoy sloshing around with various chemicals and I enjoy the unpredictability of some of the results. Having said that, I am happy to rise to the challenge of digital work and manipulating images for competitions and suchlike when time permits.
