The David Tilley Memorial Trophy (Most Creative)

David Tilley was well known for his creative photography.
The trophy is kindly donated by Jean and Charles Tilley in memory of David.
The Trophy is selected from the April monthly (Open Subject) competition, and is awarded for the "Most Creative Photograph"

The Pelican Award

This award was named due to the large amount of pelican photographs and slides entered in competitions, and the pelican became our club mascot. The pelican award is donated by Paul Temple and is awarded for the "Best Nature Image" depicting creatures in the wild or a natural scene.

The Audio/Visual Award

This award was introduced in 2015 and is another avenue for members to diversify their photography, producing a short presentation by working with sequences comprising still images, where the storyline or theme, sound, transitions and images are interdependent.

Jack was also one of the early members of the Wodonga Camera Club and remained an active member for over 40 years.
