The judge; Rob Hockney CPAGB BPE2*, had quite a task dealing with 101 projections in the two hours, but the second half was a swift one(!) and we got through. A few surprises but congratulations to Kath Hill with her atmospheric shot of the Battle of Nantwich – In the thick of it which won the General section and Peter Robinson took first and second places in the monochrome section with Life In The Old Dog and Trumpeter and finally Wallace Baxter won the Nature section with Red Squirrel With Nut.

As usual the results are already posted here, a gallery of the winners and one featured as Picture of the Week will follow.
