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. 

Our first Themed competition for this year took place on Thursday 9th March with Harry Emmett CPAGB from Accrington Camera Club judging.

The Theme was “Waterfalls” and there were 36 prints and 59 PDI for Harry to comment on and score. This is our highest number of images at a theme competition, and we were delighted to welcome many of our newer members to the fun world of our competitions.

The prints were shown first, and Harry kept six back for another look. The top score of 20 points was awarded to both “Upper Goit Stock Falls” by Nina Thomasson and “Silky Water at Aire Force” by Richard Towell DPAGB

After the break the PDI’s were shown, and Harry kept his comments concise and to the point to save the meeting overrunning due to the large number of prints and PDI submitted.

Harry awarded the top marks to three PFI, which were “Mystical Place” by Peter Thomasson, "White Scar Cave” by Susan Bedingham, and “Winter Wonderland” by Eric Grindle.
