President Trevor Morecraft writes
Welcome to the 2020-2021 season of Winchester Photographic Society.
We offer members a wide and varied programme of speakers, print and digital competitions as well as training, practical workshops, outings and special interest groups.
We have planned a full season of activities. It now looks as though the early part of this season will follow the successful way we finished last season’s programme.
Until we can meet in person, our Tuesday meetings and group events will be online, with a few outside activities under social distancing guidelines.

Founded in 1923, WPS is one of the largest clubs in the southern region.
Our membership covers all levels of photographic skills, from absolute beginners who have yet to purchase a camera, to those who travel the world producing sensational images of people and places, flora and fauna.
As well as guest lecturers and competitions at our weekly Tuesday meetings, we offer workshops, tutorials and outings to help members improve their skills.
Our Tuesday meetings are 7:30-10:00pm at the Winchester Discovery Centre in Jewry Street.
We welcome all feedback about the Society: questions and comments, compliments and suggestions, and reports of problems which we will try to fix as quickly as we can. Please use the forms to contact a committee member or chose from a longer list of Society Officials.
The Society’s website is meant for our members, potential members, guests, other photographic clubs and anyone else who wants to find out who we are and what we do.
We hope this new site makes it easier to find what you’re looking for and easy to use on tablets and smartphones.
We’re also trying to preserve as much of the old information as possible, so please bear with us while we rearrange the content and navigation menus.
We’d love to hear what you think about it and how we can improve it. Use the Committee Contact form (under the Contact Us tab) to give feedback.
Explore the site using the navigation menu, search button, or the categories and tags links at the bottom of each page.

Our Annual Print Exhibition was relaunched for 2020 as an online event.
For 2021 the selection of images for the exhibition will be an online process.
For the exhibition itself we are hoping to display mounted prints in the Winchester Discovery Centre, as usual.
We regret that we had to cancel WNE for 2020.
After trying very hard to find a way to make remote judging work under social distancing conditions, we concluded that it was not feasible for such a large competition.
We are planning for WNE to return in 2021.
We run two exhibitions every year.
The Annual Print Exhibition, a public exhibition showcasing the best of our members’ work, is usually held in May in the Winchester Discovery Centre.
The Winchester National Exhibition for digital photographic images is open to all photographers in the UK. It awards BPE crowns for accepted images.
