Tuesday 28th November 2017, a Photo Battle between ADAPS and Wigan PS was held at Wigan. This is a traditional annual event, specially marked by the miner’s lamp trophy made from a solid piece of coal. The event started at 7.45pm and our judge, Jane Lines, gave her comments on 10 DPIs and 10 prints from each club. At the half way point Wigan provided an excellent buffet. All images were marked out of 20 points, and the results were:
Prints, ADAPS 170, Wigan 167
DPIs, ADAPS 173, Wigan 165
Total, ADAPS 343, Wigan 332
It was a good, entertaining night and Jane’s judging was sharp and instructive. The trophy returned to ADAPS and the picture shows External Competition Secretary Keith Richardson accepting the accolade from Jane.
Chairman John Riley thanked Wigan for their hospitality, Jane for her judging and invited Wigan to the return battle next year, to be held at ADAPS.
