The Tri-Battle is a unique and fun three way battle. Each club submits a total of 20 images (2 from each subject) for judging. On the battle night three images (one from each club) are projected at the same time and the judge ranks those images 1st, 2nd, 3rd. Points are awarded for each round to calculate the overall score.

Selection for this battle will be towards the end of February into early March so there’s plenty of opportunity to get snapping…

Swindon Battle

As Patrick mentioned at Mondays meeting we are in battle with Swindon Photographic Society, Calne Camera Club and Wantage Camera Club on Thursday 27th September.

The battle will be held at The Western Community Centre, Somerset Rd, Rodbourne, Swindon SN2 1NF with a kick off time of 19.30. 

Each club will have a total of 20 images submitted. Images are viewed and judged on the night by an independent judge who will then offer a critique on the image and give it a score from 0 to 20. Each individual image score will then be added together to generate the overall club score. 

These battles are a great opportunity for members to see what standards are being achieved by other clubs in our area as well as meet and chat with some of their members.
