Six Societies Inter-Club Competition

This Annual competition is to be hosted by Droitwich Camera Club this year, but as we are still unable to meet up, it will take place on the internet via ‘Zoom’.

Unfortunately, as a direct consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic, only four clubs are able to participate, these being Droitwich; Bromsgrove; Redditch & Studley. Whilst disappointing this is still bound to be a good evening with a bit if banter as well as some excellent images.

The Judge for the evening will be Graham Walton
