Photography News issue 20



CameraClubof theYear 2014-15 Over 50 of the country’s leading camera clubs and societies entered the first PhotographyNews Camera Club of the Year competition, sponsored by Canon

“We have about 140 members, including several fellows and associates of the RPS and MPAGB too so have experienced success in the past. “As a club we offer a great deal to members of all levels. We have a digital group, a mono group, a beginners group and a PIC group that helps members to work in themes and produce panels for distinctions. “Obviously we are delighted with our success and it has made the effort thoroughly worthwhile. Being able to change images right up to the last minute was great; I know we updated our entry in the final week. “Thanks to everyone at Photography News and Canon, and we look forward to receiving our prizes.”

After hours of judging by the PN editorial team, Amersham Photographic Society emerged top of the heap, winning by just a single point. It simply couldn’t have been any closer, so congratulations to Amersham PS and all its members. The club wins a £3000 Canon multimedia projector, 25 £45 subscriptions to Canon’s image service, irista, plus a day with top landscape and travel photographer David Noton. “A couple of members saw the contest advertised in PN and said it was an event we should be entering,” said John Caton, chairman of Amersham PS. “We had a few moans about our projector, which has a purple spot on the screen, so possibly winning a top Canon projector was tempting too.”

Congratulationsto AmershamPSand all itsmembers
