Water Competition

The Water Competition was held on 29th January 2024 with David Boath from Richmond Camera Club as judge. 

Dave gave us very detailed and kindly critiques for every image. Overall, it was a very good and interesting evening, with a very good attendance considering the appalling weather. A full report can be found on the Competitions 2023/24 Page.

Annual AV Competition

This proved to be a very interesting and enjoyable evening. Although there were only 5 entrants, the AVs shown covered a wide variety of topics. This made for an entertaining evening with something for everyone. 

There was one AV which everyone liked and was a clear winner with 169.5 marks from the audience vote.  This was ‘A City of Contrasts’ by David Niman. David is an experienced AV worker and this was one of his best.  The other results were very close.  In second place was Colin Hamilton with his AV about the land of the Zulus, ‘KZN_9’, scoring 152.5. Hot on his heels came Miles Langthorne, with 151.5 marks for his AV to the soundtrack of ‘What a Wonderful World’. In fourth place was newcomer to the club, Dave Sim, who scored 148 with an interesting tale of a boat trip along the canal from Inverness to Fort William and back called ‘Loch Ness trip’.  In fifth place, with some beautiful pictures of our local countryside, was John Stokes with 141.5 marks for his AV entitled ‘Bloomin’ Heather’.

Thank you very much to all our entrants and let’s hope that a few others will be inspired to enter something next year. If anyone is interested in learning more about AV working, then see Miles Langthorne, David Niman or myself. We all belong to a local AV group which meets in Middlesbrough on the first Friday of the month.
