RTF Competition February 12th to 25th - Lights - Winners Announced


So the title for this round of RTF is Lights. Given that Rivers seemed to morph toward Bridges it will be interesting to see what you do with this one … :slight_smile:

Just take a quick look at the rules to remind yourselves of what is required and away you go!


The requirement is to submit a still image to illustrate the subject of the competition. The subject for the competition running from 00:01 Sunday, February 12th to 23:00 Saturday 25th February 2023 is Lights

The image must be captured during the time that the competition is open and obviously be taken by a drone in flight - so somewhat higher than your eyeline please!

Editing is confined to colour and exposure adjustments and crop only. There must be no removal or pasting of an object.

You can create as many images as you wish and submit the best in this thread. However, only one image will be accepted for judging. If you wish to show multiple entries please place each in a separate post and indicate which one you wish to be your competition entry - otherwise your last submitted image will be placed in the poll. Basically, if you have a selection of images of the same subject, have the courage of your convictions and post only the one that you think is best

Images must be posted with the following information as a minimum:

  • Location
  • Time and date
  • Aircraft/camera used
  • Feel free to add any further information that you think will be of interest


Images will be judged by the members of GADC who may vote for any number of images by means of an anonymous poll open for two days after the closing date for competition entries.

Voting in the poll is open to all GADC members, whether they have entered the competition or not.

You may vote for all, some or none of the entries.

The original media may be requested by the judges in case of a dispute.


The competition subject will be announced every second Saturday around 22:30. The subject will be chosen by a poll of GADC members selecting from three that have been picked at random from the subject list. You may make additions to the list at any time.

The competition will run from Sunday 00.01 to Saturday 23.00 fourteen days later. Voting by poll will be open for a further two days until Monday 22:00

We like to put typos in the rules to check who reads them. This however is due to our operative on the Saturday night shift being high on Gabapentin and Aldi’s finest energy drink.

The usual punishment has been scheduled … :chains: :chair: :policewoman:

Nicely shot :clap:, but you might want to go back and take that again? Submitted entries have to be taken between the dates above, but there was a slight typo which some confusion may have come from.

Now corrected.

The competition seems to be descending into anarchy anyway.

It has broken the spirit of several of our operatives over the years so now overseeing it has become a punishment for the more unruly and uncooperative of our minions. Should they still prove obdurate the last recourse is to set them on Birthday Challenge duty, trying to pick a bonus item out of a tiny blur of pixels …

It could be worse…




The lungs, especially the lungs of an animal slaughtered for food.

Well, that’s the subject I was gonna do on Thursday out the bag!!

You’re only allowed 1 entry for actual judging these days, in case you were thinking of adding extra entries. :wink:

Baylight starts this week.

That’ll be Steve @stevesb :wink:

Thought it was.

The show itself looks like it’s going to be OK👍.

The only issue being maybe the weather, it’s forecast rain, but we all know what forecasts are like.
