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 final round of this year’s Themed Competition took place on Thursday 30 November, with the theme being “Weather”. We delighted to welcome back Terry Hewitt to be the judge.

The 24 prints were shown first, and after a run through Terry held 8 back for further consideration The full 20 points were given to two prints, namely “Sun Breaking Through the Clouds” by Nina Thomasson and to “Cold Comfort” by Frank Green.

There was much excitement in the audience as the scores were awarded as this competition is the final round of the year, so final overall positions were hastily calculated to see who had won overall and who would be presented with the Trophy at our presentation night in January.

Our thanks to Terry Hewitt for his insightful and helpful comments and scores.
