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 what we do. You will find contact details, news, reminders of upcoming events and competition deadlines, our current programme, society and competition rules, guidelines for nature competitions, preparation guides for print and projected digital image competitions, and several galleries of members' work.

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.
