Once again visitors to Todmorden Photographic Society’s exhibition were able to look at images of their town and the wider world over four days at a bustling Todmorden Town Hall.

This year’s show was well attended with a coffee morning, screenings of the competition’s digital images, a series of illustrated talks and a delve into the society’s 100 years plus archives all adding to the showcase’s attraction.

This year talks included illustrated presentations on the Hebrides and New Zealand, and eagerly looked forward to was Monday’s reflective “Todmorden From The Club Archives.”

The focus turns on the society’s work in autumn, with its annual calendar also going on sale, and the public competition proved a real hit - David Greenwood’s entry Little Boxes On The Hillside winning out.

Jacqui Cordingley’s Winter Landscape was best mono print in the exhibition, and Jacqui also captured best colour print and best colour work with her Stained Glass Window Detail: All Saints’ Church Mappleton.

Best digital image was club president Ian Wright’s A Stroll On The Beach.

This year’s results were as follows.
