Past Members and Trophy Names

We thank Matt Moore for compiling this information about past members whom the Club has honoured by naming  trophies after them. We have put out a call for images featuring all past members and images created by them. These images will be added to a past-member gallery which you can see here in our Gallery of Past Members.

Please search you archives to find all images and information from/ about past members so that we may enjoy their contribution to our club.

WILFRED BROADHEAD MEMORIAL TROPHY

(Best Colour Projected Image)

Wilfred was one of those who instigated the meeting in 1953 that resulted in the foundation of Camberwell Camera Club. He held the position of Vice-President from inauguration until 1963 and President from then until he passed away in June 1967. Wilfred was a very experienced photographer and major force in the meteoric rise of the new club. The work and enthusiasm he put into this organisation during his 14 years was such that for many years after his sudden death he was spoken of as the “Father of Camberwell Camera Club”.

GORDON HANKIN MEMORIAL TROPHY

(Best Large Print)     

Gordon joined Camberwell in 1959 and was Vice-President from 1960 until his death in August 1965 at the age of 45 years. He was Chief Government Photographer of the Lands Department and so very well versed in black and white photography. This knowledge he took every opportunity to pass on to our members and, as a popular competition judge, to other members of the photographic fraternity. He was a foundation member of APS.

GEORGE ROSEDALE MEMORIAL TROPHY
