Trophies

trophy3 1Competitions are a major part of the Hitchin Camera Club season, and if you’re going to have competitions that means you’re going to have winners, and what better way to recognise that achievement than with a trophy. (Learn about entering a competition here).

Although the competitions run though-out the year all trophies are awarded at the AGM (see some awards being given at the 2016 AGM here) and the winner holds the trophy for a 12 month period.

The Overall Print and Overall Digital trophies are Hitchin Camera Club’s highest awards and are awarded to the 2 highest scoring photographers in the print and digital ¬†competitions through-out the year. These are hotly contested competitions and you’ll need to demonstrate consistent high scores in every Print or Digital competition through-out the year to be in contention.

In order to recognise as many of our photographers as possible, we have Winners and Runner-up trophies*1 and many competitions have both Prints and Digital categories. One of the newest trophies to be introduced is the New Member’s trophy which is only open to members in their first 2 years of membership and can only be won once, and is awarded to the new member with for the highest cumulative score in the Digital Images competition.

*1 – Note the winner of any competition is ineligible for the runner-up trophy.
