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. 

Thursday 14 July saw a welcome return to the club of Tony Duffey CPAGB from Southport to judge the images in our annual battle against Swinton PS.

Each Club entered 10 prints and 10 PDI, and the prints were shown first. After an initial run through Tony gave us the benefit if his comments and scores for each one. Tony gave detailed and constructive comments and these were justified in his scores.

At the end of the Print competition Swinton had scored 177 points to Bolton’s 176 points, despite Bolton scoring two 20 points with “Wren on Teasel” by Richard Towell and “Winter Treescape” by David Hawkins. It was all to play for in the second half!

After the refreshment break the PDI were shown. Top marks were awarded to “Young Harvest Mouse” by Sue Tydd from Swinton PS and to “Nuthatch” by Richard Towell from Bolton CC. For the PDI section Swinton PS scored 174 points to Bolton’s 169 points.

Swinton were declared the overall winners by 351 points against Bolton’s 345 points total. Swinton were delighted with their first win over Bolton in this competitions four year history. We congratulate Swinton PS, but the evening is also about friendship and the enjoyment of the images from both clubs.

We look forward to a return battle at Swinton next year.
