News from our Annual Tripartite Competition

Thanks to everyone who helped organise the annual Tripartite Competition evening yesterday. The event ran very smoothly and it was a pleasure to welcome friends from Sevenoaks and Old Coulsdon Camera Clubs. Once again, our friendly little club has done its bit to promote the joy of photography across the region – well done!

Now, before I get to the scores, it’s important to remember that it’s not the winning, it’s the taking part, that counts.

So, without further ado, how did TPS do?

We came third! Yay!

There’s no point trying to sugar-coat it. We came third out of three. Yes, we came last. It’s definitely the taking part that counts…

The honours and bragging rights went, once again, to Sevenoaks Camera Club who scored highest in the Prints competition and tied with Old Coulsdon in the PDI competition. Well done Sevenoaks!

It was a treat to see so many exceptionally high quality images presented, covering a very diverse range of subjects too.

Many of our TPS members’ photos received high scores from judge Rosemary Wilman. Special congratulations are due to the creators of the TPS images below – well done!


Can’t Catch Me by Colvin Hazzard, score 9.5/10
Evening at Eastbourne Pier by Barbara Witherington, score 8/10


Platforms by Mike Barker, score 10/10
Shades of Winter by Sarah Bedwell, score 8.5/10
In the Hall of the Mountain King by Simon Bedwell, score 8.5/10

Thanks for another great night of sharing and learning. We took part and, I’m sure we all agree, that’s the most important thing 😉

Next week we welcome multi-award-winning photographer Paul Mitchell FRPS for his guest talk “The Seeing Eye”. Join us to discover how to look beyond the obvious and develop more creative approaches to your photography. More info on our Events Page.
