August 19th is observed each year as World Photography Day and aims to inspire photographers across the planet to share a single image with a simple purpose; to share their world with the world, and originates from the invention of the Daguerreotype process developed by Louis Daguerre & Joseph Nicephore Niepce in 1837.

Our members were challenged to submit an image taken on this day showing either where they were, who they were with, how they were feeling, what they were doing or maybe, all of the above. To see their submissions, visit the World Photography Day Gallery.


The winning photographs from the Viewfinder Photographic Society’s recent exhibition in Skidby have just been announced. 
Members images were displayed over the weekend 5-7 October and both visitors and club members had the opportunity to vote for their favourites. Trophies were handed out in three categories; The Frank Cambridge Presidents’s Cup (voted for by members), The Visitors’ Choice Trophy (voted for by the public) and The Peter Smith Award (for the most popular monochrome image overall). Here are the top three in each category:

Visitors' Choice Trophy

The Visitors' Choice Trophy goes to the image with the most points from votes by the public who visit the exhibition.

Peter Smith Award

The Peter Smith Award goes to a black and white image with the most points from votes of the public and members of the society.

Frank Cambridge President's Cup

The Frank Cambridge President's Cup goes to the image with the most points from votes by current members of the society.

Koshy Johnson received the most points from votes in all three categories this year, a superb achievement.  Rob Deyes presented the awards for VPS at the presentation evening this year:

Raffle Winner

The winner of the exhibition raffle is Trevor Wheatcroft from Cottingham and his chosen image from the exhibition is 'Arctic Tern' by Dez Green.
