    SHOWCASE 2017 RESULTS - OVERALL WINNER

    Please find below the top 3 entries for Showcase 2017.

    I have put the top three this year, as one person was greedy and took the top two spots this year LOL.

    Congratulations to the winner.

    Here goes:

    In Third Place:

    Revised 3rd place following a disqualification.

    LS0045 - Wastwater - Tony Hawkins



    In Second Place:

    NT0009 – Exterminator - ColinC



    SHOWCASE 2017 WINNER:

    MA0012 – Lunch Time – Colin C



    Congratulations Colin – well deserved on both, and also well done Kemet for third place.

    Interesting Stats Corner

    16 people entered this year with 74 entries.

    59 of the 74 entries received a vote.

    Over half of the entrants received a vote for all five of their entries.

    Everyone that entered received a vote for at least two of their entries (except the person that entered just one picture – but that did also get voted for).

    27 people voted this year.

    22 of the 27, selected the overall winner within their votes, so obviously it’s a great picture – as is everyone else’s we have seen.

    Thank you everyone for entering, voting – without you, this would not work at all – here is to a successful 2018 for everyone.

    On a final note

    I would like to dedicate this years showcase to the memory of Nat and express my sincere condolences. He used to always be one of the first to vote and comment on the showcases. He was well known for enlightening us all with his regular local church updates and pictures and whilst I never had the fortune to meet him, he would always offer me, and I'm sure others, some good constructive feedback when asked. He will be missed by many on here. Rest in peace Nat.

    Firstly, thank you Andy for arranging / running the competition again this year, I swear it gets more difficult every year.

    Thirdly,really nice touch dedicating the showcase to Nat - still can't quite get my head around it.

          Thank you so much for your very kind votes. I am sure that the other winners and runners up will agree with me that it means so much more because it is anonymous.

          However, I should point out that Mrs C considers you all need psychiatric assistance if you voted for "The Exterminator", which she considers to be the most horrible shot I have ever taken, though in saying that, she doesn't know about the candid shot I took of her in her curlers ....... not a pretty sight!

          Very well done to the other winners and runners up, very worthy bragging rights for a whole year.

          Thank you once again Andy for shouldering the burden of this showcase and your very thoughtful and touching dedication to Nathaniel.

                Although I didn't enter this year (ill spare you my excuses) I enjoyed reviewing and voting on the excellent entries. Well done Colin and Kemet and Andy for his sterling efforts again and sensitive dedication to Nat.

                    Congratulations, Colin for such beautiful winning images, and I'm not surprised at all that the winner ran away with it, it is stunning. And congratulations to Kemet also on a lovely 3rd place. It was also really nice to see some old favourites from through the year make an appearance.
                    Thanks again, Andy, a great job as ever, take a well deserved bow and a rest.
