Congratulations to club members David Mellor and Andy Gilbert, each having recent success in external competitions.

Andy Gilbert recently celebrated double success with 2 of his entries into the "Stockton Heath Festival – Photographic Competition" earlier in July. The subject was “Nightlife” and Andy took first prize (£30) for the "Judges Choice" with his image “Rockin’ at the Parr Hall” and another £30 first  prize – for the "Peoples Choice" (voted by the public), “Liverpool-Albert Dock”. Andy said he was delighted and surprised, especially with two wins and it also being the first time he has entered this annual competition.

David acheived two "Commend Place" within the "Annual Individuals Competition 2016" for the LCPU (Lancashire and Cheshire Photographic Union). For those that don't know, the WDCC is affiliated to the LCPU, and through that in turn to the PAGB (Photographic Alliance of Great Britain). This means that club members are eligible to enter wider competitions within the LCPU and PAGB. If you wish to have further information about this, please speak to our Competitions Secretary, Ian Sprott.

The two commends were for these images.
