KCPA Diamond Jubilee 2024

It was great to welcome our affiliated club members back to Ditton Community Centre, for the KCPA Diamond Jubilee 2024 competition. We opened our doors at 1.45 and let in 112 visitors who had come to view all the images that had been entered by the clubs that entered. The day started with a welcome to all and then went on to welcome our Judge for the event, Chris Palmer FRPS EFIAP DPAGB APAGB. In total 34 clubs entered this year, resulting in 272 images being shown on the screen. A 2nd slide slow was shown when our judge was asked to comment on the highest scoring image per club and I read out the scores for each image.
