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 second round of PDI competitions took place on Thursday 16th March with guest judge Ian Stewart. Ian is a professional photographer based on the Wirral, and is a member of the Master Photographers Association. His method of scoring was to hold back the images he liked best and award the others 13 14 or 15 points, leaving the 16 to 20 points for the top images.

The 35 PDI in the Club level group were shown first and Ian held back 11 images. He gave the full 20 points to “Harpa Concert Hall, Reykjavik” by Margaret Edwards and to “Krakow at Night” by Jane Quarmby.
