NCPF Championships, Pdi and Print Results - Sunday 9th February 2014.

On Sunday 9th February the 2014 NCPF Club Championships were held at the Beacon Lough Baptist Church in Gateshead. A total of 17 clubs competed in the Projected Digital Images Section and 16 in the Prints Section. There was a substantial crowd of supporters for what turned out to be an excellent competition.

The three judges for the day were Stephen Byard EFIAP EPSA DPAGB from Northallerton CC, Alan Porrett ARPS EFIAP DPAGB APAGB from Whitley Bay PS and Keith Robertson ARPS AFIAP from Hexham & District PS, who had a mammoth task in assessing well over 600 prints and images.

In the Projected Digital Images Section there was a clear win for Northallerton CC, with a total of 243 marks from their 20 images. Second Place went to Morpeth CC with 228 marks and Durham PS came third with 221 marks. The Momento Trophy, for the best result by a club that has not previously won the competition went to fourth placed Cambois CC.

This was an excellent result for Morpeth CC who as runners up now go forward with Northallerton CC to represent the Northern
Counties Photographic Federation at the PAGB's National Club Championship Competitions held later in the year at Warwick University.


In the Prints Section, Sunderland PA came 1st with a score of 230 marks. Stokesley PS were placed second with 221 marks and Northallerton CC third with 220 marks. The Momento Trophy, again for the best result by a club that has not won this competition before, went to Alnwick & District CC who were placed fifth with 216 points. Sunderland PA and Stokesley PS will represent the NCPF at the Prints Championship to be held in Ormskirk in October.
Morpeth came a little bit further down the field finishing in 13th place in the print section.
