Bridgwater Photographic Society

Annual Competition Winners’  What a wonderful display of first class photography!!  Most members who entered our monthly competitions during the year had at least one entry in either the print or digital competitions.  Judge Peter Weaver, APAGB, CPAGB, LRPS had to decide which was the best digital image and best print of the year.  He gave us detailed feedback on each entry during his assessment and frequently made us aware that he felt he was privileged to judge entries of such a very high standard. His judgement was as follows:

Prints: 1st Sharon Lewis “In Daddies Hands”, 2nd Peter Owen “Point to Point”, 3rd Brian Sweeting “Waxwing”, 4th Peter Owen “Pysco Grandad”, 5th  Brian Sweeting  “ Read all About it”.   Three additional prints were awarded Highly Commended:  Peter Owen “Typhoon” and “Mary had a little Lamb” and Brian Sweeting “Head over Heels”.

Digital: 1st  Brian Sweeting  “Cuban Humming Bird Feeding” and 2nd “Meadow Pipit & Cuckoo”, 3rd Graham Treharne  “Gathering Storm”,  4th Andy Webber “Kingfisher down the Hatch”, 5th Richard Winn “ Nightlights”.  Five digital images were awarded Highly Commended: Sharon Lewis “Zombie Attack”,  Brian Sweeting “Reed bunting on reed”,  “Dartford Warbler”,  “Get Off my Patch” and Keith Perry “ Harrier Attack”.

Bridgwater Photographic Society is the new name for Sydenham Camera Club. Over the past few years, the former club has grown steadily, both in membership and reputation. Following the 2014 Annual General Meeting, the membership expressed a desire to change the name to signify its association with the town of Bridgwater, in Somerset. With the growing reputation, we felt that it was fitting and appropriate to become a society, rather than a club.

A number of our members have received recognition at regional and national level with the Western Counties Photographic Federation and the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain and the aim of the Society is to promote the growth of our members through the sharing of experience and knowledge.

The Society see ‘Contact Us’ tab above meets in the Sydenham Community Centre, on Tuesday nights at 7.30 pm during the season which runs from the start of September to the end of May,
