Deepings Camera Club secured a win in an annual four-way battle with other clubs from across the region.

Wisbech and District Camera Club hosted the competition on Monday, March 30, which also saw Peterborough Photographic Society and March Camera Club take part.

Final scores gave Deepings 133 points, with Wisbech in second scoring 127.5 points. Peterborough were in third with 125.5 points and March took fourth place with 120.5 points.

The competition was judged by Norfolk Photography Group’s David Jordan, who said his guiding principle when judging was does the image generate a reaction.

David said it was a close run contest and commended all the clubs for the quality and breadth of their work.

For the Deeping group, this comes on the back of a second place in the North and East Midlands Photographic Federation’s PDI Championship, which qualifies Deepings to enter the PAGB Inter-Club PDI Championship to be held at Warwick University in July. This is only the second time they have qualified in the club’s 30 year history.

The club season runs from September to the following May with a break for the summer. The club programme consists of a mix of lectures, competitions and social evenings on Wednesday nights. Alongside this, there is a series of more practical meetings, usually on the third Monday of the month.

Deepings Camera Club was established in 1985 and has grown to a membership of around 60 members.

The club is affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain through the North and East Midlands Federation and is also a member of the Lincolnshire Photographic Association.

Deepings Camera Club prides itself on a friendly welcome to new members and visitors.
