After a long delay, Our first Photo travel Interclub competition of the season was completed February 20th. We had experienced technical problems that required a re-entry of all images by all competing clubs. We apologize for the delay and appreciated the patience from all the clubs. Next, I would like to send a big thank you to the Grand Photos club of Surprise Arizona for hosting the competition and to Shirley Bormann for coordinating the event. In addition, I'd like to send my thanks and appreciation to the judges. The judges were Stan Bormann, PPSA, who has three stars in PT and Jim Urquhart, and Sherry Weinstein, who has many acceptances in PT but has not applied for any stars. Again, I very much appreciate every ones support.
This competition had 28 clubs competing with many gorgeous images. Congratulations to our five Award of Merit winners and 17 Honorable Mention winners.
