Competition Date: 
07/11/2016

This is our annual competition with Aspley Camera Club of Queensland, Australia. The format is that each club submits 15 images for each of the following 3 categories: General, Landscape/Nature and People; 5 images each for Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced - that's 45 images in total for each club. We send our images to Aspley and they send theirs to us. Each club then submits all 90 images to a Scottish judge and an Australian judge who mark the images independently not knowing which club has submitted which image. Each club then presents their judge's scores on their respective club night. The combined scores of the two judges determine the winner of the competition. Last year, Aspley won by 1 point.

The judges' scores are set out below for each image. The First/Local judge = the Scottish judge while the Second/Remote judge = the Australian judge.
