Visit our website where you can view these winning photographs, plus many more, and where you can also visit links to various photographic related sites and shops.

Next week (35th January) we shall be viewing a slide presentation of the Clay Cross & Bywater Photographic Society National Exhibition 2005, which is a selection of work entered by national photographers. This work is always of a fantastic high standard of photography and a joy to see. A very stimulating evening and is always thoroughly enjoyed by all the members. 

On the 6th February we will be holding our first A/V (Audio Visual) inter-competition, where members put together a short sequence of slides/digital images set to music or documentary. This is not a new concept as it has been done for many years with slides, but now with digital it is certainly getting more members interested, hence the new competition. The 13th February will be our 4th Print competition.

Our meetings are held at the United Reform Community Hall, Castle Hill Avenue,
Folkestone on Mondays at 7.45pm. New members are always welcome, if interested
please phone Mrs Jenny Barraclough (Press Officer) 01303 245399, or e mail
