We would like to thank all the members of the public who came to view our annual exhibition at the Hebden Bridge Town Hall this year. It was wonderful to be able to hold an in-person exhibition again for the first time since 2019.
We’ve counted up the hundreds of vote you cast and are delighed to announce the winners this year are:
1st Place: Barbara Lansdell with “Wren”
2nd Place: Judith Baron with “What About Me?”
3rd Place: Bill Pilkington with “In the Cold Midwinter”
Due to the pandemic limiting our ability to host our usual annual exhibition at the Hebden Bridge Town Hall, this year we are going to be presenting member’s work online. The online exhibition will be launched on the 29th of August.
Our annual exhibition will be opening on Saturday 24th August at the Hebden Bridge Town Hall and runs until the 31st. The exhibition will be open daily from 10am until 4pm (except on Bank Holiday Monday (26th) where unfortunately the Town Hall is closed). Entry is free.
We encourage members of the public to vote for their favourite images while looking at the exhibition, the winners of which will be announced in September. Two or more members from the club will generally be present to answer any questions you might have about the exhibition or the club itself, for the duration of the exhibition. We look forward to seeing you!
The exhibition also marks your first opportunity to see and buy our Hebden Bridge 2020 Calendar. It will be on sale at just £5 a copy, a slight discount over the regular retail price.
In addition to the calendar, a limited number of copies of the second edition of the club’s magazine ‘Narratives’ will also be available, priced at £5.
For last year’s People’s Vote winners please see here.

We’d like to thank all the members of the public who helped make our 2016 exhibition a great success this summer.

Over 1,140 people also cast their votes for their top three images, the results of which are as follows:
1st place: Fusion of Colour by Helka Czuhra Scored 319 points (53 1st choices, 49 2nd choices and 62 3rd choices)

Saturday 13th June saw the start of the popular annual exhibition of photography from the Hebden Bridge Camera Club at Hebden Bridge Town Hall. It was opened by Councillor Karl Boggis, Mayor of Hebden Royd Town Council, who was welcomed by Philip Dean, Secretary of the Camera Club.
After looking round the exhibits, the Mayor performed the official opening saying “It is a pleasure to be asked to open this excellent exhibition. Although I know very little about lenses and shutters etc. myself, taking photos only with my mobile phone, I can see that there are some really good examples of the art here and I hope that lots of people will come in to see them. I shall certainly come again before the exhibition closes.”
The exhibition was well supported by both locals and tourists alike, around 500 people coming in during the first three days alone. 70 framed images were on display and visitors were asked if they would like to vote for their favourite three. One or two of the images on display will also feature in the Club’s 2016 Hebden Bridge Calendar, which will go on sale later in the year.
As well as the printed pictures, some digital images could be viewed on a television, kindly provided by the Co-operative Supermarket in Hebden Bridge; these were the Club competition winners from 2014. The exhibition was open until Wednesday, 24th of June, daily from 10am to 4pm. Admission was free and anyone making a vote was offered a token for a 10% reduction at the Town Hall Café, courtesy of the Town Hall management.
