Competition reveals high levels of creativity

3 November 2014

Knaresborough Camera Club is bursting at the seams with creative talent. That was the view of professional and lifestyle photographer Kathryn Widdowson as she announced the winners of the group's Open Competition, the first contest of the new season.

 the top print spot for John Ash.
The guest judge said the eighty images submitted showed that club members were passionate about their photography and had demonstrated high levels of composition and creative thinking.

John Ash took first place in the print category with Bamburgh Morning; Richard Bryant won the projected category with his image of the North Wales valley Nant Gwynant and Wendy Ferguson claimed the number one spot in the projected plus category with her photograph of Mesa Arch, Utah.

Club chairman Richard Bryant said: "It's particularly reassuring to see so many entries coming from our newer and beginner members which shows that our learning together approach is paying dividends. Our competitions are off to a great start with some superb images."

Kathryn Widdowson returns to the club in December for a talk about the challenges and opportunities of commercial photography.
