North Tyne Area PDI Competition 2014/2015

This season’s Projected Digital Images Competition was hosted by Ponteland Photographic Society at Merton Hall on 23 March 2015. A total of seven clubs in the North Tyne area entered photographs; Cramlington, Gosforth, North Shields, Ponteland, Tynemouth, Wallsend and Whitley Bay. Our judge was David J Stout  DPAGB, EFIAP, PSA from Ryton Camera Club who was kind enough to consider all fifty six of the entries during his holiday in Switzerland!

There was the usual very high standard of entries for this competition with David providing expert analysis of every entry. After an exciting evening, as the scores mounted and the leading positions changed, Tynemouth were declared the winning club with a total of 212 points which included a maximum 30 score for Larry Bedigan’s ‘Barn Owl’ photograph.

‘Barn Owl’ by Larry Bedigan of Tynemouth PS awarded the top mark of 30 points
