An exhibition of 240 photographs from across the East of England attracted more than 1,000 people to St Ives on Saturday for one of the region's biggest photographic competitions.
The Interprint competition, organised by St Ives Photographic Club, was held at the town's Free Church Centre and again attracted some high-calibre entries.
The photographers were competing for two main awards: Best Club Entry and Best Individual Print.
The club entry - and the Interprint Trophy - was won by Cambridge Camera Club, which it had lost to Shillington and District Camera Club by a single point last year.
