This competition is for the coveted Graham Trevor Trophy in honour of a past member who played a significant role when the Club was known as Droitwich Spa Photographic Society.
Graham was passionate and knowledgeable about British Landscape photography and that is the topic for this competition each season. This year DPIs only will be judged and as usual members from both the Standard and Advanced sections will compete against each other for the Trophy.

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.
