Congratulations to Ian Whiston and Martin McGing who both scored 20 in our annual competition with Alsager.   Ian’s ‘ Fishing Heron’ won the PDI competition and Martin’s ‘Melissa’ won the print competition. Judge Jane Lines MPAGB LRPS BPE5 admitted that the high standard from both clubs made her task very difficult and she’s liked to have awarded more images with 20. The PDI competition was a dead heat with each club scoring 256 points while Crewe won the Print competition by 268 to 255. Overall Crewe won the trophy by 524 to 511. Our selectors had a difficult task, but did it well!  To see all the results look here
