Pixels 2016 took place at Talbot Green Community Centre on Saturday 5th November 2016 and was a tense and exciting but low scoring affair. It was a particularly good day if you have the word ‘Vale’ in your club name. The Vale Photographic Club (69 points) were very narrow winners ahead of Ebbw Vale Camera Club (with 67 points).
The Vale photos were: Cycle Racing by Paul Tromans (15), Aim by Terry Verrinder (20), Male Shelducks Fighting by Nick Craddock (16) and Not Me Ref by Mike Davies (18). Click on the links to see the photographs.
Third place went was shared by three clubs on 65 points, Cwmbran, Tenby & Gwynfa.
The judge was David LOWE ARPS DPAGB from Smethwick PS who gave an excellent critique of all the entries. He was concise, humorous and informative. David also selected Red Fox in Snow by Andy Teesdale of Clwb Camera Caernarfon as Best Monochrome Photograph and Not Giving Up by Huw Fairclough of Ebbw Vale Camera Club as Best Colour Photograph.
Gwynfa Camera Club would like to thank everyone who attended the competition and all the clubs who entered. Without you, this would not be possible.
We also wish to thank everyone from team Gwynfa who helped out on the day and Christine Langford for her help in publicising the even to the NWPA clubs.
Huge thanks also to caterers ‘The Old Bakery, Llantrisant’, and all those who donated raffle prizes including Fotospeed, Permajet and Crystal Vision Locks and Trophies (who donated a lovely tankard presented to David Lowe and provided the beautiful Pixels Trophies).
