The competition started with the colour prints which were described as 'an eclectic mix of a high standard and showing some exquisite details'.

Next was the evaluation of mono prints.

The picture 'Caught in Time' by Sue Grief RPS, was declared the winner, described as 'a beautiful, simple photograph of a pebble in the sand with pin sharp bubbles and catch lights, making this a stunning image'.

Particular mention was given to the projected digital images which harboured several 'impactful' photos.
