Annual General Meeting

Just a reminder that the clubs Annual General Meeting will take place at the Adelaide Hall, Ely College, at 7.30pm on Wednesday 22 May 2024.

The AGM will be followed by the presentation of Award Certificates to the members who have won the various club competitions during the season, and then we will hold our annual Members Choice competition, wher all club members present can vote for their favourite print and PDI images of the year.

This will be the final meeting of our regular club season, although we will be organising a number of club outings during the summer. The club will reconvene next September for our 50th Anniversary season! read more

The event was won by Cambridge Camera Club with 134 points, and Ely were second with 131 points, a great achievement considering that Cambridge have four times as many members as Ely, so this was a brilliant result for us. (We used seven different authors for our seven entries, too.) Third place went to St.Ives, fourth to Stowmarket, and Felixstowe and BSEPS clubs were equal fifth. read more

Friendly competition against Kings Lynn

On Thursday 21 March we hosted a friendly competition against Kings Lynn and District Camera Club, which is becoming a regular annual event. Each club submitted 30 PDI images each, which were judged by Jim Bennett. In a thoroughly enjoyable and closely-fought competition, Ely Photographic Club narrowly came out on top with 544 points, only one point ahead of Kings Lynn – near the end of the evening the scores were actually all square at one stage, so it could not have been closer!
