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. 

On Wednesday 10th February 2010 a delegation from the Club took five images to Poynton for the annual digital print competition. This is a very well run event and very well attended, with 24 clubs represented. Wigan 10 took the main prize with the Leek and Chorley societies close behind. Unfortunately, the Bolton Camera Club has some catching up to do, scoring 68 points out of a possible 100 and arriving next to last! There is our challenge.

Tony Redford of the North Cheshire Photographic Society has been in touch as follows:

"I’m wading through my contacts in order to thank personally all you super-efficient club officials who responded brilliantly to my requests for your images to enter into the NCPS inter-club Print and Projected Image competitions held at the NCPS exhibition last week... The reports and results now appear on our website and full information concerning next year’s exhibition events will soon appear on the Exhibition page.

In the meantime I can confirm that we will definitely be running these inter-club competitions again on the Wednesday and Thursday during our 2011 exhibition week (by which time those offending temporary traffic lights will be well out of the way!) The actual dates, of which you may wish to make a note in your diary/club syllabus for next season, are:

Inter-Club Print Competition - WEDNESDAY 9th February 2011

Inter-Club Projected Image Competition – THURSDAY 10th February 2011

I’ll be sending out the usual reminders early in the new year and look forward to receiving from you another impressive entry for our ever-increasing audience numbers to enjoy on the night.

Please pass on to your club members my thanks, on behalf of NCPS, for contributing some excellent images once again this year which guarantees the continuing success of these Inter-Club events."
