VCC Results

  • 2017/18:
    This year was the first time in quite a while that the Victoria Camera Club had submitted an entry to this competition, so it was really gratifying to be awarded the Bronze Medal  for third place. The External Competitions Committee believes that print making is a very important part of photography, and thanks to the print competitions managed by our colleagues on the Internal Competitions Committee, we have many fine prints from which to choose.
