FIAP World Cup - 13th Place
16th December 2010 - 0 comments
Irish photographic clubs did extremely well, with 1st and 3rd place, but the UK managed five clubs in the top 13. I believe this shows that the UK has one of the strongest photographic scenes in the world at the moment.

DAPA Group takes 13th place in the worlds.

Disappointing Results from Glasgow
16th June 2010 - 0 comments
Disappointing results from Glasgow this time round. I entered sixteen images and only came away with two acceptances. I've heard reports that quite a number of people have had acceptances in smaller numbers this year. The competition appears to be growing stronger. Time to step up a gear I think. I will have to work out how to regain the advantage, take a good look at what is being accepted and why the judges are picking what they have.

Cotswold Monochrome Results
12th June 2010 - 0 comments
The results arrived today. Just the two acceptances this time round, 'No Going Back' and a new image 'Third Age of Man'. To be honest I'm a little disappointed in this result. I was hoping for a few more of my images to have made the grade. Never mind, onwards and upwards.
