Grimsby Wins The Battle 2017
A team from the Grimsby Photographic Society has won Lincolnshire’s top club photography competition - for the first time.
Grimsby faced the RB Camera Club of Lincoln, Cleethorpes Camera Club, Scunthorpe Camera Club and Lincoln Camera Club in the final of the Lincolnshire Photographic Association’s annual inter-club Battles Competition.
The contest, judged by Steven Roper, Vice-Chairman of the Nottingham Outlaws Photographic Society, saw Grimsby win by a dozen clear points.
The full result: Grimsby 269, RB 257, Cleethorpes 256, Scunthorpe 255 and Lincoln 252.
GPS President David Newman said: “We’ve made it to the final on several previous occasions but this is the first time that we’ve actually lifted the cup, so we are absolutely delighted with the team’s achievement.”
“The success is indicative of the quality of the photography we are currently seeing in the Society. We have numerous members who are achieving success at national and international level, as well as in regional competitions and exhibitions.”
