PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB 5-WAY COMPETITION
On Thursday 4th March, 2016 Pennant Photography Club entered a five-way interclub competition with Cardigan, Aberystwyth, Carmarthen, and Newquay Camera Clubs, held in Newquay.
Each Club provided 8 printed images which were judged by Harry Gardiner from Tenby & District Camera Club. The final results were Aberystwyth 147 pts; New Quay 139 pts; Pennant 136 points; Cardigan 131pts; and Carmarthen 129pts. Another good result for the Club.

Bruce’s Exhibition, Borth Yma O Hyd, commences at 12.30pm on Saturday 16th April, 2016 at The Museum Of Modern Art (MOMA) Machynlleth. Exhibition runs from 16 April to 4 June 2016 in the Foyer Gallery.
