As part of the WDPS Annual Exhibition we hold two competitions with external clubs.

The first of these is the Bert Whittern Shield which is a print competition between WDPS, Muswell Hill Photographic Society and Dunmow Camera Club.

Each society or camera club has to submit 15 prints for judging. The judge will critique the prints and award a score out of 20 to each print. The society or club with the highest aggregate score will be the winner.

This is a great opportunity to see the work of other clubs and will be really interesting.

If you have never seen a judge critiquing images it will be an interesting experience and likely to improve your photography.


Congratulations to Muswell Hill for such a clear and decisive win, we look forward to challenging you for the shield in 2017. A big thank you to Dunmow for making the effort to come all the way down to Walthamstow to take part.
