Club Trophies

The Bolton Camera Club meets weekly throughout most of the year and gives a very warm welcome to visitors and new members. We have been sharing a passion for photography since 1884 and are more than happy to share with you, whether your interest is in film or digital, audio visual or more technical aspects of photography. 

Our annual trophy presentation night took place on Thursday 14th February for the winners of our 2012 competitions.

Our guest presenter was our good friend Harry Emmett from Accrington CC, who opened the proceedings with a few words about our annual exhibition in Waterstones. He explained that he had a very difficult task to judge the prints and digital images due to the very high standard, but ultimately he did select the top three and eventual winner.

The winner of The Coronation Cup for best projected digital image from all the competitions as judged by Harry Emmett was Richard Towell.

The winner of The Russell Trophy for best print in the Annual Exhibition as judged by Harry Emmett was Rob Wigley (Rob was not present at this presentation evening and will be presented with the Cup at a later date). 

The Lindeth Trophy for winning the Monthly Beginners Print Competition was presented to Richard Towell. 

The Schofield Trophy for winning the Monthly Advanced Print Competition was presented to Paul Baybut. 

The Morris Trophy for winning the Monthly Beginners Projected Image Competition was presented to Richard Towell. 

The Shield was presented to David Hawkins for winning the Monthly Advanced Projected Image Competition. 

The David Farrell Trophy for the best image taken on a Club Day Out as judged recently by Bill Edwards was awarded to Ken Bradley. (Ken was not present at this presentation evening and will be presented with the Cup at a later date). 

The Dennis Cup for winning the Audio Visual Competition was awarded to Rob Wigley. (Rob was not present at this presentation evening and will be presented with the Cup at a later date). 

The Roy Williamson Trophy for achieving the highest score in the Monthly Themed Competitions was awarded to Richard Towell.

Harry concluded the presentations with one final award, which he said was in recognition of one particular print that caught his eye at the Annual Exhibition. When judging an exhibition the judge does not know who the author is or anything about the author, just the print itself. When he found out after judging that one print of outstanding quality was taken by one of our junior members Harry asked to be able to present a "Highly Commended" Certificate to the author. Harry duly presented the Certificate to Blake Wardle.

Our thanks go to Harry Emmett for presenting the trophies, and our congratulations go to all the winners. We look forward to many competitions in 2013 and worthy winners again next February.
