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 monthly Projected Image Themed Competition was on the subject of “Fruit and Vegetables” and took place on Thursday 15th September with judge Tony Pioli ABPE ARPS from Buxton. Tony, a founder member of Chapel en le Frith Camera Club, said that whilst insects and natural history are his speciality he does not let his preferences affect his judging. 

There were 17 images submitted, and the winner was “Fresh Face” by Mike Hesp which judge Toni said was a “good idea” and it worked “very well,” adding that “thought had gone into this image.”

In second place with 19 points was “Et Tu, Fruity” by Dorothy Cooper. Judge Toni said it has a “good title” and was “well thought out” and was “well taken”

Third place with 18 points was “Temptation” by Rob Wigley, described by judge Toni as “an appropriate title for this creative image, well thought out” and “well taken.”

Here are the results and judges comments of the Themed Images in the Projected Competition. The full statistics can be viewed by opening the attached PDF file below. Any member wanting to know all the scores can see them in the Competition binder on display at the club.
