The winning prints for each set subject can be seen behind them along with the trophy for the competition and a panel showing a tribute to Jem Hayward. This panel was on show during our annual exhibition.
On Wednesday 10th November 2021, Banbury Camera Club took part in the Badby Challenge at Dunchurch Village Hall between 7 Photographic Clubs. This is down from the 9 clubs which took part last time in 2019.
Banbury came in the middle spot against a strong competition from some excellent photographs.
Each PDI ( projected image) was allocated a score by judge John Haines. At the end there was a tie between Dustan and Dunchurch. Clubs had each provided a tie-break image in advance and these were called in for these two clubs. After a difficult decision for the judge, Dunchurch was declared to take first place.,

Print Competition No1 – 2021-09-27 : Print Colour Open
On Monday 12th April, Banbury Camera Club held a Digital photography competition. Members had submitted images: either Colour and Monochrome in advance. This is the fourth regular competition of the 2020-2021 season and took place on-line over Zoom.
Winners in the regular competitions accumulate points towards winning The F-Stop, Tony Grice, or Bodicote Trophies. The Annual and the Walford and Round competitions are additional and do not accumulate points. This year in the absence of print competitions, points are awarded for digital images and will lead to the award of trophies later in the season.
Joining us on-line, the guest judge was Peter Cox. The results were as follows.
The next meeting on April 26th will be a Members’ Evening – 10 images in 10 minutes. Members invited to fill a 10 minute slot with their own images – anything goes: favourite pictures, recent walks or travels, experiments under lockdown, messing with photoshop, etc.
