SCPF Print and PDI Championships 2015

We invite you to enter this year’s SCPF Print and PDI Championships which will be held on Sunday 22nd March 2015 at Southampton Camera Club.

Both the print and PDI competitions will be run on the same day with two categories in each competition – an Open Competition for large clubs and a Small Clubs Competition. The interpretation is as for the PAGB’s Cup:

LARGE CLUB and SMALL CLUB does not mean number of members but relates to your inability to make up a satisfactory entry, which complies with the rules about number of PDI, number of photographers, etc. 

You should decide for yourself which competition you wish to enter.

There are no significant changes to the format or rules this year. The rules for this year’s competition are attached.
The closing date for this year’s competition is Sunday 1st March 2015.

2014 SCPF Championships

The SCPF Championships, hosted this year by Chichester CC on 23rd March, were a huge success, running absolutely like clockwork throughout. The hall was full virtually to capacity and as ever we had a great number of inspirational images.

The judges this year were Chris Palmer, Leigh Preston and Steve Smith.

The Open Championships were won by Southampton (Prints) and Chichester (PDIs), and the Small clubs as last year with Overton winning both Prints and PDIs.
For the full results see:

A huge thanks has to go to Chichester CC and Chairman Tony Hughes, who produced a large team of volunteers, but especially to Sheila Tester who masterminded the whole operation brilliantly… especially as she started in the role with no understanding at all of what was required. Thanks too to Glyn Edmunds who was the Council lead, for his support and guidance to Sheila ( along with advice based on last year from Jean Brooks), and Eric Clark from Havant who masterminded the projection issues.

We also has a nice bonus too … because the morning session finished quite a bit earlier than scheduled, the judges did an ad-hoc Q & A session, which gave us some fascinating insights into their judging processes and a lot of advice about successful imaging; in fact this went down so well it may be built in to future Championships.

Championship Judges 2013 – Clive Tanner, Richard Walton and Roger Force

Sunday 24th March 2013 took us to a new venue at Knowle Village in Hampshire for the second combined Print and PDI championships.

The event this year was split into an Open and Small Clubs section to encourage wider participation, with medals awarded in both categories.

In the Open classes, Chichester CC retained the title for Prints as did Southampton CC in PDI. Overton CC were successful in both Small Club sections.

Our judges for the day were all from the Kent County Photographic Association (KCPA): Roger Force FRPS DPAGB APAGB, Clive Tanner FRPS and Richard Walton FRPS EFIAP MPAGB. Council would like to thank Hayling Island Camera Club for organising the Print Championship as well as the catering on the day; Eric Clark from Havant Camera Club for organising the PDI Championship and the projection of the prints; and Jean Brooks from Havant Camera Club for co-ordinating all the arrangements.
