Newbury Camera Club also have several "speciality" competitions which are run throughout the year.
Gaston Alziary Award - This is for the Best Black and White Print
Tudor Cup Award - This is for the best SET OF THREE RELATED BLACK AND WHITE PRINTS shown as a panel.
Quarry Wood Award - This competition is for the best colour PDI of a CLOSE-UP detailed study showing the colour, form and texture of a single or group of flowers, leaves, or plants (including fungi) with minimal tidying but allowing for adjustments to levels, curves and cropping.
Joan Wakelin Award - This for the best DOCUMENTARY PANEL with a human interest. Each panel is comprised of a set of 5 images and contains a human element in all the images – the sort of pictures that would illustrate an article in a Sunday colour supplement. The lead picture must be able to show the Judge what the subject is about and all 5 images as a whole should "tell a story". All 5 images are to be mounted onto a single mount
Jim Irving Award - This is presented to the Most Improved Photographer of the year
Mobile Phone Competition - This is for the best image taken on a Mobile Phone
