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.

Postponement of Photographer of the Year Print heat judging


In view of the present lockdown situation, we have decided to postpone POY Print Heat 4 and depending on how things go, possibly Heats 5 and 6. This is to save unnecessary journeys delivering and collecting prints.

However, this does not affect the deadlines, please enter your print PDI as if the competition was taking place on the correct date. Please make sure your prints are ready too, just in case we can move quicker than we envisage.

Events will be booked to fill the empty evenings, we’ll let you know about these.
