North Tyne Open Print Competition, judged by George Ledger ARPS DPAGB

Our Judge, George Ledger, from Shotley Bridge, is a member of Consett & District Photographic Society.
His task entailed studying fifty-six mounted images. He gave detailed explanations of his thoughts for each one as he used the Light Box to allow everyone to share his deliberations.

Kath presents Stephen Crossman with the cup for the best individual print.

Many thanks to our Judge, to Kath Guellard and Tony McCann; also thanks to everyone who helped to make this evening such a success. We especially thank those who provided the substantial Buffet, which gave an opportunity to socialise.
An engaged audience.
