York Photographic Society

13th December Annual Auction with mince pies and sausage rolls

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.

The winning entry from the 2014-15 John Saville Rosebowl was "Recursion" by Russell Watkins. The John Saville Rosebowl is awarded for the best projected digital image that depicts some aspect of life, or a feature within the boundary, of the City of York Council. This year, the competition was judged by John Saunders of York Camera Club.

A selection of other entries to the John Saville Trophy 2014-15 is also shown in the grid below. There are no awards other than "Winner" in the John Saville Trophy. One thing to mention here though (and something that was remarked upon by the Judge) is that many of the images were not recognisably of York. In other words, whilst an image may have been taken in York, there was nothing to distinguish it from being taken anywhere else. Something to bear in mind for next year's John Saville competition perhaps. Anyway, back to the Gallery - click on an image to enlarge it and view a slideshow.
