KIRKBYMOORSIDE and District Camera Club recently celebrated a successful year with members, old and new, gaining recognition for their work and the club.

The club yet again regained their title in the very closely contested annual three-way competition between Scarborough and Malton camera clubs.

For this year’s Yorkshire Photographic Union’s Annual Exhibition, 10 of the members entered a total of 68 projected digital images (PDI) and 25 prints.

During the screening process, 13 prints were judged to be of a high enough standard to be exhibited, as did eight of the PDIs. Unfortunately, the exhibition,

which was due to open in May 9, has had to be postponed until later this year.

Despite the club’s closure due to Covid-19 pandemic, members are still able to complete the schedule of competitions for the year, with judging conducted through Zoom.

This year’s Best of Year Awards competition was also conducted through Zoom with trophies being collected at a later date.

A selection of images from this year competitions are below:

Lynn Wraith won the Devon Trophy for Best Aggregate Score over the year’s competitions in the print section as well as Best Print Pictorial for Yosemite Valley Glow.

Julie Cowdy also picked up two trophies; Best Print of the Year and Best Portrait of the Year for Autumn Child.
