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. 


The second round of our Themed competitions took place on Thursday 25 May with guest judge Jim Cunningham from Blackburn and District CC.

The 26 prints were presented to Judge Jim first, and after an initial run through he held back eight for further consideration. He awarded the full 20 points to “Elegance” by Ken Tebay, “Dried Anthurium and Fatsia Leaf” by Peter Maddock and “Aquilegia in Vase” by David Hawkins.
