Crouch Valley Photographic Competition 2013
The Competition Judge this year is Keith Bertie.
There were 20 club members who participated which included 114 Koi.
The Competition:

  • Open to all members
  • Photographs taken during the summer months
  • Judith and Paul organised the photo shoot
  • Each member can select up to 6 koi plus the 1 in the special category
  • More than one family member can participate
  • All BKKS show categories are included
  • Special Photographic Competition sizes are used

In 2013

  • We travelled 350 miles on 8 visits
  • The furthest east was Prittlewell in SOS
  • The furthest west was Romford
  • The furthest north was Chelmsford
  • The furthest south was Dartford

Crouch Valley sizes are a little different to the BKKS sizes, they are as follows:
Size 1 ….. Size 1 – Up to 35cm (BKKS sizes 1 & 2)
Size 2 ….. Size 2 – 36 – 55cm (BKKS sizes 3 & 4)
Size 3 ….. Size 3 – 56cm plus (BKKS size 5 and above)
This still results in a number of single koi entries in some classes.
