First PDI Competition 5th October 2021

The first PDI competition was ably judged by Veronica Congleton ARPS from Ponteland Photographic Society. Thanks to her driver she was able to attend the Torch Centre despite having a broken wrist.  There were 71 entries in four sections for her to judge so she had quite a task which she did with perception and fairly.. Thanks Veronica and all those members who submitted entries.
