4-Club Results – How Did We Fare?

by on Apr.15, 2014, under Competitions

Another great result for Waverley, around 18 Waverley members in attendance and great hosts with Berwick being very welcoming. The judge David Burren did a great job giving some great feedback on technical errors and improvements whilst still managing to impart some of the artistic elements within the images. You may or may not know that 4-Club is about the 4 competing club’s overall scores rather than being about individuals. There are 3 trophies, 1 for each section. However, there are awards for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in each section, the latter two being just bragging rights.

Here are the place getters for Waverley:

Open Prints

2nd Place – Craig Francisco – Sunset on North Wharf

Mono Prints

3rd Place – Felix Schparberg – Leonard
1st Place – Cuc Chong – Docking

Well done to all three place getters and Cookie for a 1st place. Thank goodness for that, no more mention of being a ‘B Grader’ at last.

So to the overall scores and Waverley won 2 of the 3 trophies outright:



Eastern Suburbs



Large Print





Mono Print










Total Overall





Obviously the photographers deserve the majority credit for this great result however, thanks and a real big appreciation go to Donna Clarke who painstakingly collates all of the panel who pick the images and then she runs around collecting all of the images and gets them off to the host club. Without Donna, none of this would have happened.

    Gook work everyone AND Donna. Congrautlations to the winners. I wondered what the judge’s surname was, now I know who the well know photographer David Burren is. He made very accurate and helpful comments.

    I enjoyed the night considering the fact I nearly forgot it was on and we had a great attendance again. Whilst I thought the judging was fair and accurate, I wasn’t overly impressed overall. I’m getting a little fed up of judges concentrating on the little niggly technical aspects and missing the overall artistic nature of the images. It seems that camera club photography has to be technically ‘perfect’ every time.

    I think Berwick did a great job of hosting the event and were very welcoming.
