Welcome to Chelmsford Camera Club

The club is affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain through the East Anglian Federation



After a successful summer on-line, the 20/21 season programme started on the 2nd September and we will be using Zoom for all our meetings until we can safely meet again in person.

Unfortunately our Annual Exhibition normally held in Chelmsford Library had to be cancelled owing to the pandemic. However you can view our Season 2019/20 successful images in our yearbook.

5th November: As a result of Lockdown 2 we have had to re-arrange some of the PDI and Print competitions.

28th December: Please see the updated programme as some Judges and Speakers have changed.

6th January: As a result of National Lockdown, Print 2 to 5, the Burley Cup and the Panel of 6 will be by PDI ONLY. Please see for revised submission dates.
