Photographer of the Year 2021-22

B&DPS’s annual competition consists of a monthly club event each year from April to the following March. Each month, an external judge awards marks for each image out of 20. An entrant’s highest score is entered into a league table over the year.. For the year just ended, a worthy winner scored 233 out of a maximum 240, beating the runner-up by 5 marks.

The image shown here was the judge’s picture of the month in March 2022.

The winner was Joe Collins, who used the lockdown period to add to his stock of images with several pictures of flowers and birds, captured with real flair. Our congratulations to Joe and runner-up Stuart Ogden. Our most inventive photographer, Clive Royle came third with 220 points.

The fact that Joe is our competition secretary who books the judges and sets up the images for PDI competitions is purely coincidental.
