Judge : Jeff Horswell
This critique reflects the judge's opinion
based on what they saw on the day of the show.

This should have been Espen Engh’s entry, which I very much enjoyed judging. I thought the quality was very high, especially amongst the males. Delighted to see that my winners all featured in the various group competitions – well done to all.
