The Internally judged "members" PDI competition results were announced following the AGM meeting on the 18th of April, this year the competition theme was "My North East" and for the first time members were able to "like" 3 images in addition to awarding their choice of 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. Scores were calculated as follows:

  • Each image was allotted 3 points for every first place vote, 2 points for second place, and 1 point for third place.
  • A total score was calculated for each image and images ranked by total score.
  • The top five images will then be allotted first through fifth place and the next 3 images highly commended.
  • Likes do not score any points.

Details about participation and the results are below:

  • 15 Photographers Submitted 29 images
  • 12 Members judged the images submitted
  • There were clear First & Second place images looking at the points
  • Third to Highly commended were much less clear with just 2 points separating 3rd down to the HC images
  • As a result, I had to use the number of “likes” to separate the 4th & 5th Places
  • Also, to avoid having 6 joint HC’s (each with 3 points) I have limited this award to the HC’s with 3 points and likes.

The results are as follows:
