7 Way Interclub Print Competition Report - Wednesday 28th October 2015.

On Wednesday 28th October 2015, Cambois Camera Club hosted this year’s Seven Way Interclub Print Competition
between Amble, Alnwick, Ashington, Blyth, Cambois, Morpeth and Wooler. Each club had submitted four colour and
four monochrome prints, which were marked out of thirty by visiting judge David Hall.

David commented on each of the 56 prints, offering his personal observations and constructive comments in his own
entertaining style before giving them a score. In particular, he enthused over those monochrome prints that were of
high quality, similar to that obtained using traditional chemical processing techniques. However, overall he considered
that the colour entries were superior to the monochrome ones.
As the evening went on it was clear that Morpeth was not generally scoring as well as some of the other clubs, being
placed 6th when the final scores were announced: 1st Alnwick - 214 pts, 2nd Amble - 210 pts, 3rd Blyth - 207 pts, 4th
Cambois - 206 pts, 5th Ashington - 205 pts, 6th Morpeth - 200 pts, 7th Wooler - 191 pts.

The highest scoring print with 30 points was “Hidden Landscapes” by John Thompson, representing Alnwick. The top
two scorers for Morpeth were Peter Downs with “The Yard Master” – 28 points and Glyn Trueman with “Engrossed”
– 27 points. David Hall was thanked for his work in judging the prints and the evening concluded with a finger buffet
provided by Cambois Camera Club.
