Royston Photographic Society has crowned its latest competition winners as part of a packed diary of events.

The most recent competition was on the theme of 'people', and the winner was Peter Baker with his studio shot 'Warrior Queen'.

Second place went to Jitka Brynjolffssen for 'Posing at Felixstowe', while Jim Cromwell came in third with 'Mill Road Winter Fair' - eight street portraits capturing the Cambridge community event.

This year, the society has also achieved success in East Anglia Federation events, coming ninth out of 105 member clubs in the nature round.


Several Royston members received high scores for their pictures, with Bob Coote awarded a silver medal and distinction, and Martin Johnson awarded a distinction.

The club's landscape group recently spent a day at the Shuttleworth Collection, while the wildlife group has been active in spots around East Anglia and the new portrait group took a trip to Chinatown for Chinese New Year.

Royston Photographic Society meets each Thursday at 7.45pm during term-time at Icknield Walk First School.

Events coming up before Easter break include an evening viewing photos from a member's trip to Japan, a review of the landscape group's work, studio lighting training, a 'battle' against Melbourn Camera Club and an open competition.
