ROSS CUP 2019
On 16th November, the KCPA opened the doors at Ditton Community Centre, to welcome our audience and fellow club members.
As always it was a delight to see some familiar faces in the audience, along with some new ones.
Overhearing people’s comments on the images on display was a joy as always, with so many people appreciating the images that have been entered by the various KCPA affiliated clubs.
The KCPA had 36 clubs entering the Ross Cup competition which is a great contribution from our clubs. However, I would still like to see more clubs taking part in this prestigious print competition, it is a great chance to show off the best work your club produces.
Our judge for this event was Caroline Colegate ARPS APAG who took only 1 day to judge the images.
The Ross Cup 2019 competition resulted in Ashford P.S coming first and winning the competition, with Sevenoaks C.C coming 2nd.
The KCPA is hoping that representatives from these clubs will go onto represent the KCPA at Blackburn in October 2020 at the PAGB Inter-Club Print Championships.
Each year I am amazed at the high standard of prints entered and I felt proud to present them to our judge for her selection. My husband and I, spent a most enjoyable day with our judge Caroline, whilst she scored all of the images.
Caroline had 288 prints from which to choose a maximum of 10 Merit awards, along with the Premier Award and Mick Smithson Shield for the best print entered and the Lakelands Holidays Landscape Trophy for the best landscape print entered.
In addition to the clubs that entered the KCPA would also like to thank all of the people that took the time to visit Ditton Community Hall, and view the Prints and hear the comments by our judge. We hope those that came along enjoyed the event and will join us again for the Ross Cup 2020 competition.
