WCPF MPIX - a successful 2014 for the group

It’s been another successful year for f8 members in the WCPF Members’ Exhibition (MPIX).

Most amazingly, it was a clean sweep of the Open Digital section: Alan had Gold, Pauline had Silver, and George took Bronze. And David had Gold in Open Nature.

WCPF and PAGB 2014

This is our second year of entering regional and national competitions as a club.

We came joint 5th out of 55 clubs in the WCPF Inter-Club DPIC this year – five places higher than last year! Congratulations to David for getting a Highly Commended for his Bee-Eaters, which was also the highest scoring f8 image.
