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.
CANCELLATION OF MEETINGS
Newark & District Photographic Society are sad to inform you all that the meetings for the remainder of the programme (March and April) have been cancelled due to rising concerns over COVID-19.
The Committee are consulting with the Photographer of the Year Heat 6 PDI and Heat 6 Print judges, as well as the Annual Exhibition judge, and shall make further announcements regarding these and the Society’s AGM as soon as possible.
At this point in time, we are planning to go ahead with the meetings in March and April.
All attendees will be asked to go to the toilets to wash their hands on entering the building and before approaching the welcome table. We will be treating the door handles and plates, the counter, tables and any other hard surfaces with which you are likely to come into contact with an anti-bacterial cleaner. The Showground have been asked to ensure the toilets and hand basins have been disinfected.
