Annual Point-score error

Dear Members

Unfortunately an error has been discovered in the totalling of the Annual Point-Scores.  This error occurred when uploading the results from the Image of the Year (IOTY) judging.   A coding error updated some of the original entry scores and not the associated IOTY entry.  I corrected this error at the time, but re-checking now I can see I missed two out of the 821 IOTY entries.

To keep this error in context, across the Belmont16s Photography Club competition year there were 2811 entries in 170 separate competitions from 63 members, plus the 821 IOTY entries. 

The upshot of this is that three awards were incorrect;

B Grade Nature Digital – Greg Conroy was incorrectly awarded 90 points for an accepted entry, placing him first.  Ian Medcalf was in fact 1st, Toni Conquest – 2nd, and Dennis Archibald 3rd.

B Grade Overall Point-score -– Greg Conroy was incorrectly awarded 90 points for an accepted entry, placing him first.  Dennis Archibald was in fact 1st, Ian Medcalf – 2nd, and Terina Vale 3rd.

A Grade Set Subject – Phil Whiteman was incorrectly awarded 80 points for an accepted entry, placing him first. Bettina Damme was in fact 1st, Greg Carruthers – 2nd, and John Hollot 3rd.

The results are now corrected on the website.

Please Note: These errors have NOT affected the review of grading, as the information used were the number of awards each member gained, against their number of entries, and not points awarded.

My apologies, but we all leave the lens cap on occasionally  😳 

best regards

Colin
