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. 

Eddie Garside came to the Club on Thursday 30th April 2015 to judge the first AV Competition of the year. Twelve sequences had been submitted, which Eddie declared to be a good entry for a club of our size. The scope of the entries was very wide - ranging from scenic presentations through to descriptions of destruction in Bolton during World War One. Eddie had a hard job on his hands but eventually picked out five sequences for awards. The results are presented in the attachment below this article, but to give an idea of the work presented, some stills are presented here from the top three on the night.

'In the Footsteps of Hobbits' by Don Isherwood

suggested that the influences for JRR Tolkien's 'The

Lord of the Rings' are to be found in Lancashire -

an area Tolkien knew well.
