On 26 November 2019, Ely competed in a 3-way print battle against the above clubs, coming second overall. For more details and a full list of entries and scores, please see the External Competitions section of our “Images and Competition” page, or click here
There were 11 clubs competing in the competition and each club entered 4 PDIs and 4 Prints. PICO was 1st with 146 points, Deepings 2nd with 145 points and we were in 3rd place with 140 points. We were quite pleased to come 3rd (5 points more than Wisbech in 4th who normally beat us) although we were leading the competition at the halfway stage by 2 points following a strong showing with our 4 PDI entries. The Judge did a good job and was consistent with his scoring – only 1 PDI & 1 Print scored 20.
Ely Photographic Club members were saddened to hear that Ian Kippax had passed away on 10 October 2019. Ian had been an active member of the club for more than 40 years and was a very talented photographer, winning numerous club competitions and external awards. Ian had held a number of positions on the club committee including Secretary and Treasurer, and his efforts and sterling service to the club were most appreciated by the membership.
Ian died peacefully at home in Littleport with his family around him. A loving father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, he will be sadly missed by all those that knew him. The funeral is at the Fenland Crematorium, March PE15 0YJ on Wednesday 23 October at 3.30 pm.
