On Monday 16th December, the last meeting of 2019, Banbury Camera Club held their Impact Trophy competition. This competition is judged and sponsored by Mick Crossley of The Art Framing Workshop. This is a print competition for one print per member. The following prints were given a placing.
On Tuesday 19th November, Banbury Camera Club took part in the Badby Challenge at Daventry between 9 Photographic Clubs.
Banbury came a very creditable second place after initially tying for first place with Daventry PS, the eventual winners. Nine clubs each showed 7 images with Daventry & Banbury showing an additional image in the tie-break.
Overall the scoring was from 14 up to 20 from the judge: Malcolm Sales. Malcom proved to be a good judge, strong on detail with a slight preference to black & white images. There were 4 images scoring top marks of 20. At the end fluctuations had all but disappeared and the final positions were very tight. The final positions were:
First – Daventry 126 + 20 Second – Banbury 126 + 19 Equal Third – Duston and Northampton 123 Fifth – Dunchurch 122 Equal Sixth – Badby and Northampton Natural History Society 121 Eighth – Abington 120 Ninth – Spratton 111
Chairman Ian Draper gives his thanks to Helene Boily, Barry Boswell, Diana Gamble, Mike Kirby, Derek Lane, Gareth Morgan, Toby Solesbury & Jamie Bodley-Scott whose images we used.

Banbury Camera Club Annual Exhibition of members’ images 2019 will be held in the The Heseltine Gallery, Chenderit School, Archery Rd, Middleton Cheney, Banbury OX17 2QR, UK. Each member can enter up to three prints in this exhibition, which will be open to the public from Tuesday 5th November to Sunday 10th November 2019.
All prints are displayed in standard 40x50cm frames, while the photos can be of any size, using individually cut mount boards. Prints can be offered for sale, including in a hayrack, in aid of Katharine House Hospice.
Members entering their photographs to the Annual Exhibition should hand in a completed form as soon as possible, but may bring the prints in either on the Mount Cutting Day – 19th October or the Hanging Day – 2nd November. Prints must be mounted in board of standard size and colour.
Mount board cut to the correct outer size is available to buy at our club meetings. The inner size (aperture) needs to be cut to the appropriate size to fit the print. New members can get help with this at the Mount Cutting Day. The Exhibition Form is available here. Alternatively a copy can be collected on a Monday evening.
