Each club has to put forward 15 prints, plus a tie breaker, and these same prints have to be used in each round of the competition.
Usually there are four teams competing for the title but this year there had been such high scores in the early rounds that seven teams were invited to take part. It was, as always, a very tight contest with 105 prints in a very wide range of genres for the visiting judge to score.
Grimsby Photographic Society were the winners with a score of 256 points but there was a very close tussle for the remaining places with only five points separating the next three clubs. At the end Deepings were just pushed into fourth place with a score of 245 points behind the clubs from Cleethorpes and Grantham.
The two highest scoring images from Deepings were European Roller by Brian Lawrence with 19 out of 20, while the image of the canoeist Ryan Westley by Pete Atkinson scored 18 points. The other images here scored 17.
