Cardiff vs Newport 2018

Fittingly on St David’s day Cardiff entertained Newport for the rescheduled 2017 Battle. However, the weather was against us and we had to cancel once again. Fortunately the judge Merfyn Pugh had already completed his marking and kindly offered to do a ‘virtual critique’ of the images presented.  

The results of the battle can be seen below. Cardiff were just pipped in the plate in the competition for newcomers but won comfortably in the Otter section being ahead in both the print and digital sections.

We’d like Merfyn for going that extra mile to ensure the participants were not disappointed by the event having to be cancelled.  Congratulations too to Newport for winning the Plate trophy.

Congratulations also to all those who took part. Its great to be getting back to winning ways!
