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 Tuesday 16 August 2016 Wigan hosted this annual battle between the three clubs, with Judge Graham Shaw from Urmston.

Each club presented 10 Prints and 10 PDI, and the prints were up first. Graham held back seven prints for further consideration, and gave the top score of 20 points to two of them, “Wren with Insect” and “Retired and Loving It” At the end of the print section the scores were added up; Wigan had 165 points, Bolton Digital had 156 and this club had 164 points.

It was very close going into the break.

After the break the PDI were shown, and Graham coincidentally held seven back. He awarded the full 20 points to two PDI, namely “Kingfisher with Catch” and “Daredevil”

At the end of the PDI section the scores were Wigan 164, Bolton Digital 157, and this club 169 points.

After the scores for the prints and PDI were added together, the totals were Bolton Digital 313, Wigan PS 329 and Bolton CC 333.

Thanks were given to our hosts Wigan PS for putting on a great competition and a fun evening, and to Graham Shaw for his scoring and observations.

We look forward to hosting the next battle between these clubs next year.
