BATLEY and District Camera Club’s annual exhibition opens tomorrow and has an extra edge.
Two grants from Batley Area Committee and Kirklees Arts in the Neighbourhood have enabled the club to buy 100 new frames to showcase members’ work.
Club membership secretary Margaret Sheard said: “We’re so pleased to have been awarded the funding. We had been using some borrowed frames which were tired and a little tatty. This will give our exhibitions the boost they need, allowing us to present members’ work in the professional manner it deserves.”
Work in the exhibition, which closes on Saturday, May 22, has been judged by an associate of the Royal Photographic Society.
The exhibition is at Batley Library and Art Gallery, Market Place, Batley.
The winning prints in the range of different categories are: Beginners Print Trophy – Simply Vintage by Tracy Dowgill; Advanced General Trophy – The Three Mills by Ken Breare FRPS EFIAP; Advanced Record Trophy – National War Memorial, Alrewas by Margaret Sheard; Advanced Portrait Trophy – The Entertainer by Brian Asquith; Advanced Natural History Trophy – Teazel by Ian Perry; Best Colour Print Trophy – The Three Mills by Ken Breare; Best Monochrome Print – Bicycle by Ian Perry.
