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 (11/03/2024)


Colin Lusby CPAGB will no longer be able to join us to deliver "The All New Photography—Art For The Untalented".

This was to be a print talk using mostly A3 colour and monochrome prints, made over the last 2 years, including landscapes/cityscapes, natural history and nature, and some creative work.

Instead we shall have Ian Pinn BPE2*, who shall be delivering "My Photography".

This is a print lecture on general photography where audience participation is encouraged. Ian will be showing 'before and after' images and going into how his images are processed.

Change to Zoom Only on 23rd October 2023 ('I Did it My Way')


Due to road closures—resulting from local flooding—our meeting on 23rd October 2023 ('I Did it My Way') shall be held via Zoom only.

Apologies for the inconvenience and late notice.
