The Club
Founded in April 1961, Kidlington Camera Club currently has over 40 members with a wide range of ages, backgrounds and interests. We aim to encourage involvement and enjoyment of all forms of still photography in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and are always pleased to welcome visitors and new members.

You can see some of our members' work on the gallery and winners pages.

In September 2003 we started meeting at the Foresters Hall, see map, which offers better parking and more time than the pressures of our previous location at Gosford Hill Community Education Centre.

Programme
The programme includes a varied range of subjects to interest everyone as well as social activities and outings. The new season's programme comes out in late August of each year but you can start taking photographs in readiness for competitions under the selected subjects for next season.

Competitions
Regular features of the programme are the annual competitions, the titles for which are selected by members' votes in January of each year ready for the following season. Although entry into competitions is by no means compulsory, they are conducted on a friendly basis and most of us see them as a way of showing our work to others and at the same time obtaining constructive comments which help us all to develop our skills. They also give us an incentive to go out and take photographs.

The Newcomers competition gives new members a chance to put forward their shots without being up against those more experienced, although the competition rules only state that an entrant should have been member of a camera club for three years or less and do not call upon authors to state how long they have been taking photographs.

You can view competition winners and competition rules here.

However, everyone is very welcome to come and enjoy looking at and talking about photographs without any pressure to compete.

Cameras and Media
Members use wide variety of equipment and media, including mobile phones and tablets, and all are welcome.

Digital images for projection (PDI) have the attraction of being considerably cheaper to produce than prints, but it is hoped that plenty of prints will be forthcoming to ensure a good supply of material for our exhibitions. Whether you print at home or use a commercial processor, it makes no difference how your photographs are produced as all methods are valid as long as the resulting image is your own work.
