A total of 14 Regional clubs took part in this year’s Grampian Eye Photographic competition.

The Bon Accord Camera Club hosted the contest this year with Mearns the overall winners from Moray in a closely fought competition.

Each club submits 15 images which are marked out of 20 and the judge was renowned Scottish Photographer, Duncan McEwan.

Craigewan Photographic Group came out top of all the local clubs beating Fraserburgh, Ellon and recent winners Peterhead.

Club chairman, Peter Lewis, was delighted as the club was only formed in October last year and did not have as much time to prepare for the competition.

He said: “To be only 11 points off of third place but finishing eighth in their first ever competition just shows that there is a lot of good photographers in the North East.”

All levels of photography are catered for though if you need any more details, contact the club through their website www.craigewanpg.com.
