Photography for All in Steyning West Sussex

Regnum Print Competition, could do better!

The Regnum Print Competition took place on Tuesday 27 November at Durrington Community Centre. Seven clubs competed (WorthingCC having dropped out), and the competition was very ably judged by Rachael Talibart. She emphasised that she would have to “very picky to separate the prints”, and certainly she carefully noted both strengths and weaknesses in every image, including choice of paper in some cases. We could all learn a lot from Rachael’s analysis, so it was a shame that more SteyningCC members were not there to hear what she had to say.
ChichesterCC won the competition with 142 points, Mid SussexCC came 2nd with 141, StorringtonCC came 3rd with 136 and SteyningCC came 4th with 135 points. Then LittlehamptonCC with 128, SouthwickCC with 124, and HenfieldCC with 118.
