This is the website of York Photographic Society, York's longest established photography club and indeed one of Britain's earliest photographic societies. New members are always welcome to this thriving, friendly and energetic camera club.

York Photographic Society's annual Colour Print Competition was held on the 15th March 2015 and was judged (unfortunately in absentia!) by David Burgess. The entries were whittled down to 3 placed, three highly commended and three commended images.

So congratulations goes to Anthony Emmott who won this year's Competition with his moody portrait entitled, "The Man in the Orange Turban". Anthony also submitted an print that was Commended (see below). Click on the image to fit to screen and view on black.
