Duston Camera Club meet on a Tuesday eveing at Duston Community Centre, Pendle Road, Duston, Northampton, NN5 6DT. Doors are open from 19:45 for a 20:00 start, finishing at 22:00. We are members of the MCPF and PAGB.
We hold a bi-monthly print competition, with two rounds at each event - an open and a set subject.
There is also a Projected Digital Image (PDI) competition that runs during the year consisting of 4 rounds in total (2 open and 2 set subjects). We also have the "Versatility Challenge" comprising Landscape, Portrait, Action and Nature. The final competition is Print of the Year. This is an open competition where the photograph has to have been taken during the last 14 months.
We have a large number of people from around the country come and give us talks. Most of these are well known people who give a wide variety of talks on a diverse set of topics. The programme of events is published here on the website, and is available to members in their printed programme for the year.
There are a number of social events during the year, summer walks, summer and winter socials, and an awards evening where the winners of the competitions during the year are presented with their trophies.Read more (programme of events)
Congratulations to Reg Law, who was awarded honorary life membership at the first meeting held in person for around 18 months. The award was given following Reg's decision to step down from the committee, having been involved, almost continuously, in various roles since 1984.
I'm sure that the committee, Duston Camera Club, and all past and present members would like to thank Reg for the hard work and dedication that he's put in over the last 37 years.
