Welcome to the website of Clay Cross Photographic Society
We are a group of people who enjoy all aspects of photography. We meet at a local church community institute centre where we enjoy superb modern amenities. Our purpose is to expand our knowledge and technical skills and to enjoy the creation of photographic images. Our aim is to share those skills with each other and welcome people from the local community and surrounding urban and rural areas with the same interests. Our meetings include training lectures from qualified photographers, specialist talks, competitions and displays of members work. The Society is affililated to North & East Midlands Photographic Federation (N&EMPF) and the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB).
On 6 April 2013 the Society celebrated its 50th anniversary. Above are the top images in the image of the year competition for 2016-2017
Entries for the 2018 Clay Cross National Projected Image Exhibition are open from Friday 1 December 2017, and close on Wednesday 31 January. For further details, you can log in here

Roy Millett has kindly sent us some images (below) of the last days of the Society at its former home at the Rainbow Cafe in Clay Cross. This venue was once the destination, in Ashover, of the Ashover Light Railway. The cafe was then moved to a site in Clay Cross. This became a housing estate, and I understand that the cafe is now in store at the Midland Railway Centre at Butterley, awaiting a kind and wealthy restorer.
