 2018 PDI Club Championships

On Sunday 4th February a recent record of 37 clubs took part in the PDI Club Championship at Fulbourn near Cambridge.  Each club showed 15 images in Round One, aiming for a place in Round Two.  The top scoring 14 clubs progressed to Round Two, showing us a further 10 images with all 25 images counting towards the final positions. This year, only one mark separated the top two clubs but there were 3 clubs tied in 3rd place, so we had to resort to the tie-break formula to separate them. The final results were:

Winning club gaining the EAF Trophy – Beyond Group

Runner up club gaining the Eric Saul Memorial Trophy – Cambridge Camera Club
Third placed club certificate – Photographic Imaging Co-operative (PICO)
Honourable mention goes to Ipswich and District Photographic Society and Colchester Photographic Society, who only missed out on third place as a result of the use of the tie-break formula.
Beyond Group and Cambridge Camera Club will therefore be invited to represent the EAF at the PAGB Inter-Club PDI Champioship to be held in Warwick in July. It is a good event, and our representatives would welcome some support. Tickets need to be bought in advance from the PAGB website.
Many thanks to everyone who helped to make the day possible; the clubs, the executive, their spouses and friends, Cambridge CC for the loan of their projector, the staff at the Fulbourn Community Centre, and of course the three judges .
The judges selected the following images as their personal choices and their joint choice as the best image in the Championbship.

Autumn Adjudication, Colchester, Essex, 25th/26th November 2017
The autumn adjudication was held recently in Colchester, hosted by the East Anglian Federation. We were very fortunate in having some excellent facilities at our disposal; maybe I am biased, but I do think it was one of the best that I have attended over the past five years. The weekend went very smoothly and my sincere thanks go to the members of the Executive who assisted and also to my own club. I had offers of help from many other people. 
The EAF had 59 members applying at all levels and, 34 being successful, this was our highest application and success rate in many years.
