PDI size increases to 1600x1200 this season

Our rules for Projected Digital Images (PDI), submitted to internal or external competitions, have previously specified that they should be sized to 1400x1050 pixels. However, the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB) and their associated federations, including North & East Midlands Photographic Federation (N&EMPF) to which we are affiliated, have adopted a new, larger size: 1600x1200 pixels. If we wish to submit images submitted to our internal competitions to any external event, they are going to have to conform to the new specifications.

COMP.6 PDI Results and full results from the season

18 Members entered 54 PDI images and the top 20 scores are 'Black Hairstreak' from Peter Malton and' Morning Hare' from Ian Haskell. The judge was Alan Young FRPS.EFIAP.DPAGB AND BPE4*. This is now the end of season for all the internal Competition entries and the Print Competition was won by Ian Haskell and very close by Stuart Ball and Colin Bradshaw.
