Amateur Photographer magazine runs an annual competition to find the “Amateur Photographer of the Year”. The competition is run over 10 months, each month a different theme is set. Each round is professionally judged and all those who are shortlisted earn points, as do those who make the top 10.
The competition has sections, an individual adult, an individual young person and a club competition. Anyone entering the individual adult competition has the option of naming the club to which they belong. The points they earn (just the highest in each round) are totalled for each club that is represented.
Launceston Camera Club has just been announced as the winner of the club competition. Not only did we come first but came top by a very significant margin with 490 points.
Bristol Photographic came second with 220 points and Truro came third with 215 points.
