Potters Bar Photographic Society resumed active meetings at The Wyllyotts Centre from September 13th 2021 with the occasional zoom meeting now included in our programming.
The Club meets once a week on Monday evenings, in the Alexander Suite of the Wyllyotts Centre in Potters Bar ( just off Darkes Lane, near to Potters Bar railway station ). Members of all abilities, ages and gender meet each other with a common interest and meetings for this Autumn/Winter term will run from 8pm to 10pm, although the room is open from 7:30pm for members to meet up beforehand. Non-members are welcome to attend three meetings free-of-charge; please just send us an email or contact the Society for further information (see Contact page for details). There are two levels of membership: Associate Member (£45 pa) for those who just wish to attend the meetings, but not enter competitions, and Full Membership (£65 pa) for those who also wish to enter their work in the competitions run by the Club.
The Club aims to encourage the practice of all aspects of photography and provide a forum for any persons interested in photography to learn about new genres and ideas, so the Annual Programme is made up of illustrated presentations by external and internal speakers , alternating with a number of internal print and projected image competitions. We also hold two competitions each year in which we compete against a number of other invited clubs, as well as participating in external interclub competitions.
The Society holds an annual print exhibition, at the Hatfield Galleria shopping centre, usually during March or April. All Full members are encouraged to enter prints for this exhibition and awards are given for the best print, as voted for by the public, and the best General Class print selected by a panel of Advanced Class members.
