Liverpool print photography award won by Worcestershire Camera Club
November 23, 2009 by Lyndon
A photography printing competition in Liverpool, the Inter Club Photographic Print Competition, has seen an award given to an amateur photography club from Worcestershire. The photography club is called the Worcestershire Camera Club, and their 109 members are delighted with the award for Best Rookie.
One of their photographers, Malcolm Haynes, won a silver medal in Liverpool with his photographic print, which he entitled ‘Waiting to Cross’. Malcolm has been taking photographs with the camera club for the past 50 years.
The Worcestershire Camera Club also won a second award for the team. The first round of scoring for their photographic prints saw them finish outside of the top 12, meaning they failed to make the second round of judging. Despite this, any of the clubs who didn’t make the second round were put in for a special award of a plate. The Worcestershire Camera Club won this award in Liverpool’s Connahs Quay, when they scored an impressive 71 points for five of their photographic prints, out of a total of 75 points.
The photographic prints were printed using local printing services. Liverpool’s Inter Club Photographic Print Competition is a national competition, open to photographic clubs throughout the UK.
Peter Jepson is the vice chairman of the Worcestershire Camera Club. He said of his club’s success in Liverpool:
The club has been going for more than 100 years and in recent times has gone from strength to strength in external competitions. This is the pinnacle.
