Best of National and Regional Wildlife Photography Goes on Show
Dumfries Camera Club marks platinum year with festival exhibition while Gracefield hosts Britain’s best nature photos
Dumfries Camera Club is celebrating the start of its 70th anniversary year – during which it will stage a special exhibition as part of the Wildlife Film Festival Scotland.
At the same time preparations are underway at Gracefield Arts Centre to host the British Wildlife Photography Award (BWPA) exhibition, also as part of the festival.
Rod Wheelans, a long-time DCC member, will be this year’s club president and he too is 70 this year.
Rod said: “We are really looking forward to taking part in the festival and our exhibition, Creatures of the Nith, will be a great showcase of some of the superb pictures taken by our members and a celebration of the fantastic wildlife of our region.
“Our club is always up there amongst the best in competitions – out of more than 1,000 across Britain we are very much in the top 10. This has a lot to do with the friendliness of the club and the encouragement people give each other to help them..
