2012 Print Competition – Top Images

Our top Print images (generally scored a 9 or 10) from the Album, Colour and Monochrome sections from each competition are presented here – as we promised last year. We haven’t split them into Set & Open categories – that’s in the title.

Please peruse and enjoy our best printed images – judged by SAPF and non-SAPF judges.
