 Pittwater Camera Club Images of the Year 2015

Pittwater Camera Club’s Images of the Year was held at Pittwater RSL on Monday December 7th along with the end of year presentation of awards and trophies.

It was a great night, with plenty of laughs and some great images on display. We would like to thank Phil Ramsden, who was our judge for the night and provided plenty of entertainment with his colourful and informative critiques.

We'd also like to thank Pittwater RSL for preparing the food on the night and also for providing the venue for the year.
