For some strange reason the Rushden organizers posted the statistics for their 29th Open Exhibition on their web site ahead of sending out individual results. Maybe this was there way of warning photographers to expect a poor set of results, who knows?
The statistics didn’t make very good reading. Out of a total of 3613 entries, only 518 made it into the final exhibition, just 14.3%, which for a digital only exhibition is a bit on the mean side, but that’s just my opinion!
Judges for this exhibition were:
General & Creative
Les Nixon DPAGB
Malcolm Ranieri FRPS MPAGB
Nature & Monochrome
John Lacy ARPS CPAGB
Barbara Lawson FRPS DPAGB
Tony Wharton FRPS AFIAP
My entry consisted of 4 colour images (general section) and 4 monochrome. The score given by the judges are in brackets.
