South Devon League Digital & Print Battle

Season 2013 to 2014

The South Devon League Battles are between Dawlish & Teignmouth, Newton Abbot, Crediton and ourselves. We have two battles a season, the Print Battle in either November or December and the Digital Battle sometime in the spring. Each club enters 15 prints and 15 digital images for each of the competitions. We are not allowed more than 2 images from the same photographer.

For the season 2013 to 2014 Exmouth Photo Group has regained the cup, we managed to be the winners in both the print and digital sections and all the results and images are below.
