Celebration of the year 2020

And what a year it was!!!

When it became clear that COVID was here to stay for a while we cancelled all our face to face meeting and embraced the online world via Zoom. 

All our competitions necessarily became PDI competitions.  We missed the prints, but embraced the fact that we could now welcome judges and speakers from all over the UK.

At the end of the year our “Celebration of the Year” was held online.

We submitted our images into various categories and then the winners of those categories went forward to the overall winners competition.

We tested Zoom’s poll capability to the full but were able to hold a members vote to chose our winners.

Lets hope we can see the return of Prints in 2021.
