Lancaster Photographic Society entered the South Lakeland Inter-Club Knockout Competition last Thursday, hosted by Ulverston Camera Club. Six clubs submitted 15 photographs comprising colour prints, mono prints and digitally projected images, and more than 50 members of the clubs attended. Lancaster progressed to the semi final by winning the first round against Barrow, then won through to the final against Holme with a thrilling win over Ulverston. Unfortunately their good run stalled in the final, which Holme won by a total of 410 points to Lancaster’s 399.
This was the third successive time in the final of the competition, but a win still elludes the local photographers, as the two previous occasions were lost to Kendal. Members felt that the standard of their work was the equal of the other clubs, and they now look forward to next year’s competition, which is to be hosted by Lunesdale Camera Club.
