The Ross Cup is an annual competition for photographic prints between clubs affiliated to the Kent County Photographic Association (KCPA).
Each club's entry consisted of 8 prints in 50cm x 40cm mounts, no more than 2 prints per photographer. Full rules are available on the KCPA Website.
This year Tonbridge Camera Club organised the event on behalf of the KCPA.
The competition was judged by Margaret Salisbury FRPS APAGB EFIAP who also selected most of the prints for comment. Some additional prints were added so that every club had at least one print commented on.
The prints were assessed individually in a random sequence ( not as panels ) without reference to club names or photographer.

- The club obtaining the highest aggregate score wins the Ross Cup.
- The highest scoring print (any subject) wins the Mick Smithson Shield.
- The highest scoring landscape print wins the Lakelands Holidays Landscape Trophy.
