Welcome

Potters Bar & District Photographic Society

We meet once a week, on Monday evenings, in the Alexander Wilding Suite of the Wyllyotts Centre in Potters Bar (just off Darkes Lane, near to Potters Bar railway station). Meetings run from 8:00pm to 10:00pm, 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 President for further information (see Contact page for details). There are two levels of membership: Associate Member (£30 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 Society.

The annual Programme is made up of a number of print and projected image competitions, alternating with presentations by external speakers. For the internal competitions we divide the entries into two classes: General Class, which is for beginners and intermediate level, and Advanced Class for those who have reached a higher standard with their photography. 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. Attendance at these interclub competitions is open to all members of the Society (usually at no cost).

The Society also holds an annual print exhibition, at the Hatfield Galleria shopping centre, usually during the last two weeks of 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.
