Rules and PDI preparation changes

In addition to the rule changes that have been introduced for next season please be aware that in preparing PDI images for our competitions in future the image size should be
1600 pixels x 1200 pixels.

The reason for this is that there are some external competitions which we enter where the club/organisation are using the latest projectors which use this increased size of image and we don’t want to be disadvantaged when competing.


The new rules with highlighted changes have been placed on several other pages throughout this site but are also downloadable here.

Essex Trophy

Congratulations to Jeff Scott winner of the Essex Challenge PDI Competition seen here receiving the trophy from judge, Pauline Martindale.

Jeff's winning image entitled Spheres of a Garden can be seen below.

External Events
It's always worth attending any of these events as you will see the cream of work from around the Federation.

Our first win of the season in external competitions has been achieved at Halstead in their Twin Town 6 Way PDI International Competition. Judged by Julie Hutson ARPS DPAGB

Congratulations to Chrissie Hart ARPS, DPAGB on a Highly Commended award at the Chelmsford Panel Competition for her panel "The Insects in my Garden".


























Chrissie's Statement of Intent that accompanied the panel was as follows:

The Insects In My Garden

The insects in my fairy tale garden are beautiful, fantastical creatures, living in the parallel world of my imagination. I share with you my vision and hope you will see them as I do; whimsical, romantic and intriguing.

Come with me there; and I will introduce you….

Chrissie Hart
