The competition was judge by Nigel Walker, a well-known Beverley photographer and studio owner. Each club had to present five prints and five projected images.

Chairman Derek Knight said he was proud of the club’s achievements and the improvement in photographic skills shown by all members.

Wolds Photographic Society meets each Tuesday at 7.30pm in the Arts Centre from September to April and has monthly outings during the summer.
