Annual Members Winter Show 2023

10.11.23 02:34 PM By The Camera Club

Entries NOW OPEN

Twice every year at The Camera Club, we love to share the work of our members. To show the skill and imagination of our wide and diverse membership; to show beautiful, intriguing, challenging, puzzling and sometimes funny photographs.

The next members exhibition is the annual Members Winter Exhibition and it will be taking place this year from 04 December to 06 January. And yes, once again, there are going to be prizes!

  • First prize 100 points
  • Second prize 75 points
  • Third prize 50 points
  • Highly Commended 25 points

One point equals one pound and the points can be exchanged for studio, darkroom, digital suite time and your annual subscription (not workshops, though) So when you think about it, the first prize is a hundred quid!

The winners will be decided by their fellow members. As well as submitting prints, each submission should also include a digital image. All of the images will be displayed on The Camera Club Website and each member will be able to vote for their first, second and third favourite pictures. 

We really want to present as much work as possible from as many members as possible. There is no set theme, no limitations. Street, portrait, fashion, landscape, narrative, documentary - any genre you wish to share.

All of the submitted prints must fit our standard frame of 500mm by 400mm. If you have never provided prints before, have a look at our Gallery Hanging Guide for a few hints and tips. And if you have any other questions or need any more information, get in touch with Bill Hart-French at Gallery 1885 he is more than happy to help you in any way.

So, if you would like to submit some pictures and join in with the exhibition. This is what you need to do.

Step One | Digital Versions

We need a digital version of your pictures so we can display them on the website and the members can vote for them. Email the digital versions of your submitted images to Each JPG should be a minimum of 1500px on its longest edge and you should provide the following information in your email:

You can submit up to two images and they should be named in the following way:


The deadline for submitting the digital images is midnight on Sunday 26 November. If images are received after this time, they will not be eligible for the vote.

Step Two | Printed Versions

Deliver the prints to The Camera Club. As mentioned, they should be 500mm by 400mm. If you wish to submit prints of a different size (smaller, not larger), we are happy to receive them, but you will have to supply your own frame.

Place a label on the back of each print with the following information:

·       Your name
·       The title of the image
·       Your email
·       The file name of the corresponding digital image (YourName_ImageTitle.jpg)

As well as putting a label on the back of the print, please put a label on the packaging as well. That way we can easily repack your pictures after the exhibition is over.

The deadline for delivering the prints to The Camera Club is 10pm on Friday 01 December.

Thevoting will open on Tuesday 28 November and will close at midnight on Saturday 02 December. When the voting page is ready it will be announced via a special newsletter, on the website, on social media and on the club Whatsapp group (The Camera Club – Main). Each member may vote just once. 

You can vote for three pictures. First choice, second choice, third choice and the pictures will receive three points, two points and one point accordingly. The result will be announced on the evening of the Open View on Thursday 07 December. Oh, did we mention there will be booze and nibbles?
