(Print and DPI against Faversham & Sittingbourne)
We came second behind Faversham in the print round but well ahead in the DPI round, and won the Swale Trophy.
The victory we due in no small part to Claire Gilbert's digital images, both of which scored 20 with a "best DPI" award for "Layla, the Barbary Lioness". Ros Eastwood's "Lyrical Dancer" also scored 20, with both Mike Gould's shots getting 19. Rupert Brun's "Dog in the Fog" maintained the proud tradition by scoring 16 but he did better in the print round, with two images scoring 19, our best scores in that round.
