Desborough & Carrington Cups

The Desborough Cup      The Carrington Cup

The Desborough Cup is an annual internal competition for both Projected Images and Prints. Both mediums have a different set theme and are judged not only on their technical ability but also on how the image fits the theme. The set theme changes each year. In 2014 Eric Carrington presented a new cup 'The Eric Carrington Cup' to be presented to the winner of the projected image theme. This means there is no overall winner but a winner for each theme. The results are as follows:-
