Come and see us !

Greetings ! If you are here because you bought a print or chatted to us at the N21 Festival : The Summer Exhibition 2013 on Winchmore Hill green yesterday, then it was nice to see you and thanks. We were there to raise awareness of the Society, and didn't really expect to sell any prints. We ended up running out of sale dockets and wrapping paper. To say we were surprised and delighted at the volume of sales would be an understatement.

If you are interested in learning more about us, have a look at the galleries, our Autumn program, and how to find us. Our email address is We meet on most Tuesdays in term time in an upstairs hall at the rear of St Paul's church, Winchmore Hill at 8pm.

The next evening will be on September 10th, when a distinguished photographic Judge, Maggie Tear LRPS CPAGB, will be selecting the winning image from the 200 projected digital images we showed at our recent (72nd) annual exhibition. 

Come along and sample a few evenings before deciding whether to join. We have no minimum entry requirements, merely an interest in improving one's photography.

Film Title Quiz

Our Film Title Quiz is now open. To enter, visit the gallery of nine images and decide which well-known film title each image depicts.

Once you have identified all nine films, print the entry form here (move the mouse towards the bottom of the document and a floating toolbar with a print icon should appear). Complete the form with your nine answers to date, and your contact details.

The 10th and final  image will be on display at our exhibition where you can complete your entry form and submit it. The first correct entry picked out after the 10th of August will be the winner. Remember we are also running a photo competition for non-members.

Good luck and see you at the Exhibition!!

May Print Competition

A big thank you to Adrian Stone for driving so far south to judge our May Prints. Adrian was very positive and entertaining as well as helpful and informative and we all enjoyed the evening. You can see PDI versions of many of the prints in our Competition Gallery here, and since our annual Exhibition is only a few months away, you may have a chance to some of these prints themselves.

Open Competition

We had a great time at the Grovelands Park Centenary this weekend, and we were delighted that so many people found their way to our little display beside the winners of the Grovelands photography competition. Hopefully you all noticed the Grovelands mansion (The Priory) on top of that John Dory.

We've been handing out leaflets about our annual exhibition and the Open Photography competition we are holding as part of it. That's Open in the sense of for everyone, except our members.

The rules and other details are now available here. We look forward to judging your entries.

The winners of the Grovelands Park photo competition have been chosen, and you can view the best images and the winners in the Exhibition Tent at the park this weekend (18-19 May) as part of the Festival.

If you go to see them, you will spot a poster for our 2013 Exhibition, which is coming in August, which announces that for the first time we will have an open competition for members of the public. The best images will be displayed at the exhibition. We will post the rules shortly.
