Farnborough Camera Club has been busy both running its own club competitions and entering interclub ones so far this year. The year kicked off the print panel contest, which chairman Richard Jenkins won, fighting off stiff competition from Mark Pirie, John Fletcher, Wendy Collens and Sally Seager. Next up were the Rainbow and Molesworth competitions between Aldershot, Farnham and Fleet Camera Club, Yately Camera Club and Farnham. The Rainbow is an open competition, while the Molesworth is monochrome only. Together the two contests attracted around 100 entries, and in what the club believe is a first, Farnham’s chairman Richard Jenkins won both!
