On Sunday 16 November, the above competition was held at the former Stirling Management Centre, now re-named the Stirling Court Hotel.  28 Scottish clubs competed over three rounds of projected digital images.  The format is that each club submits (in advance) a “bank” of 40 images, nominating eight of them as the first round entry.

After the scores for the first round are given, clubs nominate a further eight images as their second round entry.  First and second round scores are then totalled and the top eight clubs, and any tieing for eighth place contest the final.  The remaining clubs contest the Plate competition.

EPS narrowly missed reaching the final – by ONE point, and came third in the Plate competition.  I have put up the score sheets on the Phoenix Group page.

This is indeed a very disappointing result, and indicates that we must “pull our socks up” in February when the SPF Club Print champoionships are held.  So we will be looking carefully at all the prints entered for our own internal competitions – and indeed the PDIs too.  We might like to see a good quality print from a worthy PDI.
