Wychavon Trophy success for Droitwich
The annual battle for the coveted Wychavon Trophy took place against Vale of Evesham Camera Club on Monday last on our home soil and Droitwich Camera Club ran out the winners for the second year running.
The Judge for the evening was Brian Swinyard who has many photographic honours to his name including ARPS, EFIAP/b, DPAGB, BPE3*, PPSA, MInstLM & MIfL. Brian is regarded on the UK Camera Club Circuit, not only as a prolific photographer and image-maker, but also as an inspiration to others so his expertise and judgement is well respected.
In a keenly fought competition the standard of entries was of very high quality, especially in the print section where none of the images for either team scored less than 16 with some scoring the maximum 20 points. As a result of some superb images in the print section, Droitwich were well ahead at the half way stage and although Vale of Evesham edged the DPI section by 2 points, Droitwich took the trophy by a good margin. Final scores were:
Prints - Droitwich 284 Evesham 273
DPI's - Droitwich 271 Evesham 273
Total - Droitwich 555 Evesham 546 Many thanks to everyone who came along to help create a good atmosphere and make it a very enjoyable evening. The attached image shows our Acting Chairman, Ray Portman receiving the Wychavon Trophy from Brian Swinyard.
