The Society

Newark & District Photographic Society has existed to promote and provide support for Amateur Photography in and around Newark-on-Trent, Nottinghamshire, England since 1938.

A keen group of photographers, we meet weekly between September and April to hear guest speakers talk on their photographic techniques & experiences, and to receive constructive criticism of our own work.

This website was created to allow parties interested in photography both locally and further afield to see who we are and what we do, and to provide resources for members. You will find news, reminders of upcoming events and competition deadlines, our current programme, contact details, our constitution and rules, competition rules, guidelines for understanding nature competition rules, preparation guides for print and projected digital image competitions, and members' galleries.

All correspondence should be emailed to the relevant contact or posted to the Hon. General Secretary:
Newark & District Photographic Society, c/o 104b North Gate, Newark, Nottinghamshire, NG24 1HF.

Change of Event (26/09/2022)


Due to our advertised lecturer for tonight being unable to deliver his presentation due to illness, we have been frantically exploring ways to deliver an evening's entertainment for tonight.

In no particular order, Angela Plumb CPAGB, will present two AVs—one on Costa Rica and one on Trinidad—while Richard Hall FRPS, Bsc.Hons, will present Lockdown in Caythorpe. Time permitting, Rose has the Memorial Lecture and the APM Day to talk about as well.

We are extremely sorry not to be able to bring Abandoned Architecture by James Kerwin; we have sent our best wishes and hope to rearrange the evening at a future date.
