Each year, the club organises the first heat of the Rotary International Young Photographer competition, the prize giving of which took place at High Cross Church on Thursday 9th February and was presided over by John Wenger, Camberley’s Club’s President.

The theme was “Reflection” and an impressive range of technical  and artistic ability was demonstrated through the 120 pieces of work on display.

The Junior level was won by Liliana Foy from St Augustine’s, Frimley, Intermedi- ate by Amelia Hazevoet from Tomlinscote and Senior level by Ben Selwood, also from Tomlinscote.

The Mayor of Surrey Heath, Councillor John Winterton and his wife Di, were on hand to pre- sent the trophies, prizes and certificates to the winners and runners-up from each group.

All entries were judged by professional photographer Chantal Storrs- Barbor and Carole Head, local artist and chairman of Frimley & Camberley Arts Society .

The winning photographs will now go forward to the District and possibly National levels where last year two entrants made the final, one of which was runner up in the whole competition.

The competition is run in three stages: local heats, district competi- tions and then a national final and is split into three age groups: Junior (7 to 10 years), Intermediate (11 to 13 years) and Senior (14 to 17 years). It is designed to support the development of photographic skills and en- courage young people to experiment with photography using digital or traditional methods of photography.
