Best overall underground photo (Gile Barker Award) was decided by public vote on the night. The winner (Bill Nix) gets to judge next year’s competition. His photo is the one taken in Meghalaya.

The opportunity for members to show photos from the last year’s holidays or caving trips on the big screen after the end of the competition was not so successful as Ray’s digital projector developed a fault and the images were split into bits as can be seen from the screenshot below.

See what I mean!
