Chelmsford Camera Club

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

You don't have to be an 'Expert Photographer' to be welcomed as a member of Chelmsford Camera Club. All you need is an interest in photography. The Club meets weekly from September until May with a varied programme of competitions, photographic talks and demonstrations, member participation evenings and social events. We meet from September through to May.

Speakers / Competitions

We provide a first class, entertaining and informative programme of high quality speakers on all aspects of photography.

Competitions are held throughout the season. We hold league competitions for Prints and Projected Digital Images (PDI). There is also the annual Burley Cup for a Panel of 3 Prints, and the Cyril Chorley Memorial Trophy for a Panel of 6 Prints. There is a Themed competition for prints and PDI. Finally we hold an annual Audio Visual (AV) competition.
