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 along with our current programme, upcoming competitions, and several galleries of members' work.
At the request of the Committee the Society now has a Facebook Group where current members can interact and share thoughts and images with each other.
The Society used to have another group until 2011 but Facebook chose to change how groups and pages work. Since that time this page has existed, and will continue to, as the Society's official presence on Facebook.
The new group is for CURRENT members to interact freely and last season's members, who plan to rejoin the Society from September, are encouraged to visit and request to join.
All requests to join the group will be subject to approval by the Committee and anyone leaving the Society will be removed from the group to limit the exposure of member's images online.
Further Facebook groups for the Society's Focus Groups may be created subject to demand and take up of this initial group.
With effect from the start of the 2015–2016 season, attendance fees for both members and visitors will increase by 50p, taking them to £3.00 and £3.50 respectively.
Meeting Start Time
With effect from the start of the 2015–2016 season, meetings will commence at 7.30pm instead of 7.45pm.
