The 5 Club Competition was held at Wallsend on 26 February and was judged by June Shaw. Cambois were the winners. They were 70 points clear of Wallsend in second place, their score was 30% lower than the lowest score ever achieved in the history of the competition. The scores awarded had the audience gasping in disbelief. Prior to this year the lowest mark for any picture had been 17, but this year the majority of the pictures scored less than that, with the bottom image receiving just 6 marks. This year’s competition lacked the usual excitement of previous years when the placings have often been unknown until the last few pictures have been shown. This year the outcome was fairly obvious very early in the evening. The result was

Cambois 227,  Wallsend 157,  Blyth 142,  Cramlington 139,  Whitley Bay 118.

Diary date for October 2014 - together with Tynemouth PS, we are hosting an afternoon and evening with the Beckhams. For those who are unfamiliar with the PicturesToExe forum, Barry Beckham is well known for his excellent tutorial disks on both Photoshop and PicturesToExe and was a leading figure in the early days of digital photography.
