The Devon Battle 2017

Another good year.
This years Devon Battle was hosted by Newton Abbott Photographic Club, took place at the Courtney Centre, Newton Abbott on Saturday 13th May.

This annual Devon Clubs' competition is split into two parts. Firstly we have the themed print panel of five images, and secondly a DPI section made up of five Digital Projected Images of no fixed theme. For the panel we chose as a theme of staff portraits from the South Devon Railway. This was based on an idea Ian had and expanded by Dave. Clubs can enter both categories or just the one.

Having had a successful competition last year we had high hopes for this one, with contributions from Alan, Dave, Ian and Sue (print panel) and Alan, Dave, Ian, John and Stuart (DPIs). In the end we came third in both the panel and the DPI sections. In the DPIs there were just two points separating us with Newton Abbot who came in second.

We also gained two “Highly Commended” awards. Ian in the panel and Alan in the DPIs.
