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 along with our current programme, upcoming competitions, and several galleries of members' work.
