Public Competition

“Hidden Banbury” – Public Competition

Banbury Camera Club are holding a photographic competition which is open to the public. Entry is via the website link.


Banbury Camera Club

Banbury Camera Club is the place for photography enthusiasts to meet in Banbury and surrounding areas. We meet every Monday between September and May at Chenderit School in Middleton Cheney,  just outside Banbury. If you like photography we think you’ll find something to interest you in our programme. Information about becoming a member can be seen here.

We like to make our programme as varied as possible. In our most recent programme we’ve had lectures on landscape photography, mobile phone photography and instagram and a varied practical evening. Our frequent members’ print competitions are of a high standard and bring out some imaginative photography. We also enter into external competitions with other camera clubs and have a lively Summer Programme.

Where we meet.

We are fortunate in having access to excellent facilities for practical photography at Chenderit. There is a superb digital imaging suite equipped with the very latest computers, scanners and printers. So we can put a big emphasis on practical work, offering opportunities for individual and group use of the extensive facilities, with experienced members offering advice or support.

In addition there is an excellent gallery where we hold our annual exhibition.

So whether it is learning to use your camera, improving your holiday pictures for the family album, producing exhibition prints, or simply enjoying other people`s photographs, we hope that Banbury Camera Club has something for you.
