On Thursday 15 April 2021 the A45 Trophy external competition was held via Zoom and 8 local photographic clubs competed. Each club submitted 8 images and they were judged by John Wilcox. The standard of images was excellent and there were a wide variety of different genres and styles.
Of a possible maximum score of 160, two clubs each scored 145 points. The two Clubs were Ely Photographic Club and Bottisham and Burwell Photographic Club, and it was therefore mutually agreed to share the trophy this year.
