Great Notley Photography Club have been very fortunate in the competitions it has entered so far. Last year saw the fledgling club win the Club Challenge in DLSR User Magazine, and the North Essex Digital Projected Image Trophy 2010. The penance for winning the NEDPI competition is that the club who wins has to host the event and the GNPC committee and ‘volunteers’ took on this challenge this year.
On Saturday evening 12 Essex photography clubs gathered to have 5 images judged by Barbie Lindsay, EFIAP, MPAGB, FBPE. There was live music, provided by Logan’s Station and raffle prizes up for grabs but the main event was the pride at stake for the clubs. Amazingly, GNPC triumphed again, narrowly beating Colchester Photographic Society and Braintree Camera Club. The penance is that we have to hold the event again next year!
Thanks go to all the organizers and volunteers that set up and produced a fantastic spread for half-time. Logan’s Station were great and Barbie is a great judge (obviously). Onward and upward for the GNPC.
