Inter Club Competitions

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. 

Over 60 people from 14 L&CPU clubs attended the L&CPU Audio Visual competition on Saturday 18th February at the Wilmslow Guild. A total of 36 sequences had been entered into the competition, and the judge, Malcolm Imhoff FRPS FACI(M) from the Midland Counties Photographic Federation, gave some excellent constructive comments after each sequence was shown.

The winner of the L&CPU Audio Visual Trophy was Howard Bagshaw from the Wilmslow Guild Audio Visual Group with his sequence ‘Kelpies’. This also won the Audience Vote.

This club entered five sequences and we are delighted to confirm that “The Underworld of Prague” by Phil Durkin CPAGB was Highly Commended and came joint fourth overall. As we had not entered this competition in the past, our entries were in the Unrestricted Category, and Phil’s sequence won the “Jackass” Trophy.
