Porirua club grabs photo award
Porirua’s photographic club, the Kapiti Camera Club, has won the annual interclub photography competition.
The event was hosted by Kapiti Camera Club at the end of last month and six photographic clubs from around Wellington – Aotearoa Philippines Photographic Society, Hutt Camera Club, Kapiti Camera Club, Kapiti Coast Photographic Society, Karori Camera Club and Wellington Photographic Society –took part.
Prints were displayed under panorama, abstract, triptych, portrait, and monochromatic categories.
Bruce Hutton, who was a police forensic photographer for 23 years, was the judge.
An innovative approach to the traditional 10-print format was introduced this year to include a digital component with five broad categories.
On the night the judge announced a specific topic under each category, leaving the clubs to frantically select the appropriate image from their collections. This generated humorous and farfetched explanations to support the choice of image.
Sponsorship from Noel Leeming provided six 42- inch television screens and cabling for the projection of images.
Porirua Mayor Nick Leggett presented a trophy to the winning club, with the Stella Daniell Award for best abstract to Kapiti Camera Club member Denise Gandy.

Happy moment: Denise Gandy receives the best abstract award from judge Bruce Hutton.
