Thank you to everyone who submitted entries for the final event of the 2017/18 season.
The knockout was a “fun” competition to close the season. Members could enter up the three digital images. It was permitted to enter images that had previously been entered into one of the formal competitions and entering an image in the knockout does not prevent the author from entering it into one of next season’s formal competitions.
54 images were submitted so 10 “byes” were added to bring the first round number up to 64.
The 64 images were then shuffled and displayed in pairs, with club members choosing by a show of hands which one of each pair would progress to the next round.
The remaining 32 images were then shuffled again and the process was repeated until we were down to the final two images and then the winner.
Unfortunately, due to the way the competition was operated with entries being shuffled for each round, I don’t have a record of which entries were knocked out in each round. However, the full set of 54 entries are included in the gallery below.
