This comes as the Society celebrates its platinum jubilee year.

Anne David, Committee Member of the Horsham Photographic Society, said: “We have had an excellent first half to our 70th anniversary year.

“We have a group of dedicated members, who have themselves attained high standards and qualifications and who give up their free time to guide, support and aid any member who wishes to attain a photographic distinction.

“This has obviously proved a great incentive and benefit for those who wish to progress their work.”
