Friendly Competition against Kings Lynn & District Camera Club

On Wednesday 16 December 2020 we participated in a virtual friendly pdi competition against Kings Lynn, with each Club entering 25 images. The competition was judged by Nick Akers, and Ely won by a very narrow margin of only 2 points, scoring 414 against Kings Lynn’s 412 points. For a list of the individual scores, please Click Here

The evening was very enjoyable, and both clubs expressed a wish  to repeat the event next year. Well done to everyone who contributed to the success of this event. read more

On 15 December 2020 Ely competed against St. Neots, St. Ives and March clubs in a closely-fought battle judged by Nigel Rea.  Each club entered 10 pdi images and Ely scored 186 points with the other clubs all within 3 points of us.

Congratulations to everyone who entered the competition, and we look forward to hosting this event next year, (hopefully in person rather than on the Zoom app!)

Ely Photographic Club member Phil Lenney was one of the photographers invited to submit images, and the exhibition catalogue is available here.  Prints can be purchased online at £45/print. read more

Programme for 2020/2021

Andrew has recently circulated the programme for the forthcoming season. Thanks again to Nick for all his hard work compiling this in such a short timescale.

All events for the 2020 year have now been added to the Events page of this website, and those events for 2021 will be added in due course if the coronavirus situation doesn’t change significantly.

2020/21 Membership fees

The Committee has worked hard to produce a schedule of events for the coming season, in these very difficult times, and have decided that the membership cost will remain at £50 for the 2020-21 season. We feel that, given the comprehensive programme, this represents good value for money with each session costing £1.25. Membership fees are now due, and details on how to pay these have been circulated by Andrew. We look forward to welcoming back as many members as possible for what should be an interesting and varied programme of events. read more
