We had a fantastic entry from both the IPF and NIPA, with a total of 327 images.

 

These were independently judged by Victoria Hillman MSc in Wildlife Biology and Conservation. and Dr. Roy Anderson B.Sc. 2.1 Hons, Ph.D

 

Neither judge would be familiar with either federations work.

On Saturday 22nd results and feedback were given via Zoom. We had a vey well supported meeting with around 92 people in the room.

I hope you enjoyed the day. Both judges provided excellent feedback on a selection of  the images, many thanks, Victoria and Roy.

Congratulations to everyone who entered and to those who had placed images.

Congratulations to the IPF who just pipped us by 24 points to take the overall honour of the top Federation.

Looking forward to next year.
