We had a cracking field of entries for the Grant Cup, with 51 images from 17 members. Four of these entrants are in their first season of PPS competitions, so special congratulatons to them. We don’t have space here to show them all – you really had to be there – but It should be clear, even from these wee thumbnails, what a high standard of images this event attracted.
The Grant Cup is themed, and this year the theme was ‘Transient’, not that we hold anyone too closely to that. We watched the entries through several times, noting our favourites with paper and pencil. This year, to cast our votes, we used the online voting process we used for the two years we met on Zoom. This turned out to be beneficial, and we’ll use it again, for the Dall and Simpson Cups – the online scoring not only quickly counts votes cast, but simultaneously counts how many 5’s, how many 4’s, and so on, which becomes significant in the event of a tie on overall points. So it proved to be – the top two images both scored equally highly, but one had attracted more 5’s, and so had the edge.
The top five placed images can be seen on our Gallery page for the season’s competition winners.
