Supporting local photography since 1923

President’s Welcome 2021/22

President’s Welcome 2021/21

Welcome to the 2021-2022 season of the Winchester Photographic Society. I am honoured to take the role of President and thank my predecessor Trevor Morecraft who led the society through unprecedented times when physical club meetings were impossible.

We are affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain and our society is one of the largest and most successful in the Southern Region.

Last season we won the league competition in division one so we are the current league champions of the Southern Counties Photographic Federation.

We welcome Photographers of all abilities and interests. The club offers a friendly informal environment where members can socialise with other photographers.

We meet every Tuesday from September through to May at the Discovery Centre in Winchester.

We provide a wide ranging program of speakers who will both inspire and educate. We run a series of competitions (both print and digital) which are a great way to have your work appraised by an external judge and learn to improve your photography.

We also have a number of Special Interest groups run by our experienced members and these provide an informal space to discuss and share your work and ideas with others.

We hold two very successful Exhibitions each year, the Annual Exhibition for members’ prints held at the Discovery centre and the open Winchester National Exhibition.

There is a lot going on at our club and we post regular updates on this website.

Full details about membership can be found under the Membership tab.

Thanks to the success of the society, we often have to run a waiting list for new members.

We have an accessibility policy, and we want to make our events and services open to as many of our members as possible.
