I spent yesterday on a 3 person panel judging 700+ images at the South Australian Photographic Federation Annual. http://sapf.org.au/
A day very well spent; this was my first time judging at a major competition.
There were about 400 prints as well... that was another panel.
The quality of the top 10-15% of images was stunning but dropped off to club average at the end.
The AP comp images would do very well; top for top would be very close.
I would encourage all members to consider entering competitions here and other ones online; even join a local camera club; great way to improve your work.
The creative section had some brilliant ideas. Lots of room for new concepts.
