Virtual Car Show

The JEC Cheshire Virtual Car Show & Lockdown photo competition was suggested because we can't hold normal car shows at the moment.

We have had a great response to our Virtual Car Show & Lockdown photo competition. The number of entrants and quality of photos entered was excellent.

Judging was decided by the 5 committee members with Chris Antell as head judge. We had 3 categories:-

Sports car, Saloon & Lockdown photo.

With a prize for the winner of each category and the JEC Cheshire Members' Cup presented to the winner with the best overall photo.

A cross-section of the photos were shown on our July JEC Zoom meeting, where the results were also announced. This also made good use of the Zoom technology. The results are given below.

Sports Car Category
