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. 

We were hosts to this year’s second inter club battle with Bury PS on Thursday 27 October 2016, and the judge was Mike Davis from Rochdale.

For this battle the two clubs had agreed beforehand that they would each submit 10 PDI and 10 prints, but all of them would be by different authors. This meant that each club called upon the work of 20 member, giving more of our member a chance to represent their club.

The prints were shown first, and the full 20 points were awarded by Mike to two prints, namely “Full Throttle Bottle” by Martin Henfield and “Female Kestrel with Prey” by Blake Wardle.

At the end of the print section the scores were 166 to Bury and 171 to Bolton.

The PDIs were shown to Judge Mike, and after due consideration he awarded 20 points to “A Perfect Disguise” by Maurice Wilson and “Washing Line” by David Barker.

The scores for the PDI was 174 Bury and 171 to Bolton.

The overall scores were 340 to Bury and 342 to Bolton.

Our thanks to Mike Davis for judging what was the best images from both clubs and to Bury PS for their images, prints, and friendship. We look forward to the next battle between our clubs in the spring of next year.
