Northern Area PDI Knockout Competition

The Northern Area Projected Image Knockout Competition between the seven Northern Area Clubs was held on Sunday 16th November 2014. This event was hosted by Morpeth Camera Club.

The judging panel consisted of Stephen Fowler and Jack Telford of Ryton Camera Club and Alan Porrett of Whitley Bay Photographic Society. Cambois CC did not put forward an entry for this competition therefore only six clubs took part.


After the first round Amble and Wooler were eliminated from the Knockout Trophy but later competed against each other for the Digital Plate. Ashington and Blyth left the competition after the second round leaving Alnwick and Morpeth to compete for the Trophy. In the third round Amble scored 156 points to Wooler’s 150 making them the winners of the Plate. Morpeth won the Trophy Competition with a score of 177 points. Alnwick came a close second scoring 174 points.


Congratulations to Amble and Morpeth for their respective wins. Congratulations also to Jane Coltman of Alnwick CC as her image entitled Arctic Tern was the only one in the competition to gain the highest score of 15 points.


The event was well attended by all of the clubs who took part and the members of Morpeth provided an excellent buffet afterwards. My thanks to the members of Morpeth for an enjoyable afternoon and also to the three judges for their constructive marking throughout.
