This year the competition was judged by Joe Houghton. Joe found the standard to be so high that he gave 9 panels the maximum of 20 marks. However, he had to pick one winner overall! Well done to Alistair for his panel and also to Unda who created two of the 9 best panels. All 9 panels can be seen below:-

1st Place (with 98 points): Eric Robinson, with a terrific set capturing birds in combat – Beak to Beak.2nd Place (with 95 points): Keith Walkingshaw, with amazing landscapes – How Small We Are In The Face Of Nature.3rd Place (with 90 points) – Alistair Cowan, with travel portraits from Vietnam – The Octagenarians.

2019-2020 Cunningham Cup
This year we have 15 entries for the Cunningham Cup and Neil Scott has the onerous task of assessing the entries.
Individual images are scored out of 20 and the Panel is scored out of 40. Scores for individual images count towards the end of season awards.
Due to the extraordinary circumstances that prevail at the moment, we cannot meet to see and hear the results of the competition.
To whet your appetite, the panel entries are shown below. Once we get the scores from Neil, we will announce the winners and put the results up on this page. Neil has also kindly agreed to provide written feedback and we will post that too, so we can all learn from Neil’s wisdom.
Entries are as follows:
The Waiting Game
The Highland Show
Three Faces of Eve
How Small We Are in The Face Of Nature
White on Black
As-sruth Loch Ghiuthsachain (Outflow of the Loch of The Pine Forrests).
2018-2019 Cunningham Cup
The Cunningham Cup competition is for 3 images on a theme of the author’s choice. This is a competition for CD Group members.
Each image is scored out of 20 and the set of 3 is scored out of 40 based on how well the images complement each other and work together as set. The winning panel was produced by Muriel Binnie with a stunning set of artistic images produced using ICM (intentional camera movement). Well done Muriel.
