The 60th Annual Exhibition and Inter-Club Competition took place at the Whitby Club Photographic Society on Tuesday 12th April 2011.
Chester Photographic Society (CPS) was again invited to enter the Inter-Club Competition.
For the first time in 29 years, out of the six clubs competing, Chester took first place in the Marsden Cup.
Ian Copley was present to receive the award for Chester Photographic Society.
The format of this competition is a panel of images with the subject chosen by the club submitting. Our theme this year was “Portraits”. The images are below.

We also placed second (out of six) in the print competition for the Brook Trophy. Congratulations to Warrington for taking first place.
The format of this competition is a panel of images with the subject chosen by the club submitting. Our theme this year was “Landscapes”
prints submitted were from the 2009/2010 season and therefore have no digital reference images available, though the images submitted were as follows:
- Buchaille Etive Mor - Roger Evans
- Malham Lings - Roger Evans
- Bamburgh - Fog Approaching - Ian Copley LRPS
- Zabrishi Point, Death Valley - Ann White
- Ballooning At Dusk - Ray Groome
- New Brighton Lighthouse - Ian Copley LRPS
Hopefully we will be able to repeat this success in more competitions next season. As selections are made from images available from the whole membership, we should all be very proud of this achievement and please keep up the good work!
The other clubs competing in the competitions were Harwarden, Hoylake, Mold and Whitby.
