I've just had an e-mail from our club competition secretary telling me that I have won a "Judges Medal" in the SCPF Championship 2016 and another club member has won a Bronze Medal.

Better yet the club came first in the Championship

Best of all, I didn't know that the particular image had been selected by the club for entry into this competition Grin

Feeling rather pleased and can't wait to find out more

Really well done Brian these regional events always have lots of entries and competition is fierce.

For those who don't know (i.e. me 2 minutes ago) the SCPF is the Southern Counties Photographic Federation .

Having seen who the judges are, I have to ask do you know which judge gave you the medal? Also which pic was it ?

Thanks Chris, I'm still waiting on confirmation of details but understand it was this image The New Baby

The odd thing was that I'm usually one of our competition entry selection panel but think I was away on holiday when all this was arranged so other than telling the others that they could use any of my images they thought would be useful, had no real understanding of what the competition was or whether one of my pics had been selected, so its all a bit of a surprise, hence my lack of real knowledge.

I know that in the past it had been selected for the PAGB exhibition (no one told me that either until after the event Wink )

Once I have more info I will post it here, at the moment there is just a sense of bewildered enjoyment

"ell, I got my Medal tonight: "SCPF Judges 1st PDI 2016" a heavy, gold coloured item in a nice case (shame its not the real gold though Wink )

As I understand it there were 28 clubs with 15 images / club and my club was the only one with two medal winners (there was a panel of three judges scoring the images apparently)

Apparently when we were announced as the winning club the general reaction was "Boscombe Camera club - who are they" Grin

They haven't noticed we have progressed from SCPF league 7 to league 2, winning each league the first year we entered it - stealth photography rules!
