Monthly Competition Results

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. 

Themed Competition Thursday 26 May 2016


The topic of this competition was “Decay” and we had 20 prints and 44 projected images for guest Judge Ken Ainscow DPAGB BPE4 to comment on and score.

Ken is a member of Lytham St Annes Camera Club and enjoys taking photographs of people either in the studio or in the street. He was impressed with the overall high standard, particularly of the prints, and was pleased that every image fitted the topic.

The prints were shown first and Ken gave top marks to three of them, namely
