Staffs Photo Clubs PDI 2012 Inter-Club Competition

Hi All,

On Wednesday evening [14th November] it was the turn of Leek Photographic Club to host the annual Staffs Photo Clubs PDI Inter-Club Competition at Lea Hall Sports and Social Club, Rugeley.

It has to be said that the organisation went smoothly and our Chairman Arthur Lomas was on top form as Master of Ceremonies. A good contingent of members from Leek PC made the journey and were rewarded with sight of a fine selection of images. Nine clubs each entered 10 images to be judged by Mr Bob Underhill from Smethwick PS. Marks for each image were awarded out of 20. We won this lovely trophy last year and so were looking to retain it but on the night this wasn't to be.

The final positions were as follows:-

  • 1st Cannock Photographic Society - 177
  • 2nd Stafford Photographic Society - 170
  • 3rd= Burton upon Trent Photographic Society - 166
  • 3rd= Leek Photographic Club - 166
  • 5th= Lichfield Camera Club - 158
  • 5th= Tamworth Photographic Club - 158
  • 7th Rugeley and Armitage Photographic Club - 147
  • 8th St Leonards Camera Club - 142
  • 9th Acton Trussell and Penkridge Photographic Society  - 134

Individual scores for our selected images were as follows:-

  • Male Orangetip - Paul Matthews - 20
  • Male Kingfisher - Paul Matthews - 19
