It’s been seven long years since our name was last on the Celtic Challenge trophy as winners and we are delighted with the result. The Scottish Photographic Federation took the runner up spot. As usual a huge thank you to those behind the scenes who put so much effort into making our entry possible. The Celtic Challenge is an annual international photographic competition between federations from celtic nations.

Sincere thanks also to the Welsh Photographic Federation, this year’s hosts, who took on the challenge of running the competition itself in Porthcawl. We know from our own experience that this event and the amazing hospitality around it takes endless hours of preparation and time, usually by a very small group of people. Well done to all involved! The competition judge was Martin Fry from the UK.

We’re very much looking forward to publishing full results, report and a gallery of the 30 images which represented us in the 2016 Celtic Challenge. Until then, congratulations to all our photographers, especially Paul and Morgan.
