MCC News 20 April

Last night saw the second round of the print competition on the set subject of Life on the streets Judge: Tim Morland ARPS.

Winner of the 2012 Brugfina Trophy

Tim Moorland did an excellent job judging the entries commenting on the technical quality, composition and adherence to the set subject. He made particular references to the quality of printing pointing out where improvements could be made.  

I was surprised at the lack of entries in the standard class.  The photographs scoring 10 from both classes were judged and the Brugfina Trophy awarded to the best of these.
