The TTC Photo Competition 2021, held on 12th October, attracted ?? entries.
The competition was judged by James Gilberd and Geoff Marshall. James presented the competition results at the clubnight. Alan Knowles organised and attended the judging.
Introduction from Alan
- Blind judging was used - the judges and I didn't know who took photos.
- I did enter just as an exercise to see what entrants had to go through (my photos were removed from the results). It is a considerable, complex clerical task to get the entry to match the FMC instructions.
- File names are important - try to say in your title something we cannot see in the photo.
- Choose the right category - we have changed one or two.
- No human element means just that - unless there is a tiny element.
- Enter your own photos only
