2016 Club Print Championship Report

On Sunday 6th March, 24 clubs took part in the Club Print Championship at Fulbourn, near Cambridge.  In Round  1, each club showed 15  images, trying to win a place in Round  2.  The top 10 clubs progressed to Round  2 and showed a further 10  images.

After all 25 images, the results were:

Winning club, gaining the Ken Ratley Trophy: Beyond Group

Runnerup club, gaining the Eric Saul Memorial Trophy: Cambridge Camera Club
Third placed club certificate: Ware and District Photographic Society

Beyond Group and Cambridge Camera Club will now represent the EAF at the PAGB Federation Interclub Championship, which will be held at Ormskirk High School on Sunday 6th  November this year.  Tickets will be available via the PAGB website in due course.

My thanks to everyone who helped make the day possible: the clubs, the executive, their spouses and friends, and, of course, the 3 judges.  The Print Championship is more labour-intensive than the PDI Championship, with much work going on behind the scenes. We had a slight scare on the Friday, when it seemed that one of the judges, Christine Widdall, might be snowbound in Lancashire; fortunately there was a thaw, but we are grateful to her husband for helping to ensure that she was able to get to Cambridgeshire.
