Founded in 1894 the Walthamstow & District Photographic Society (WDPS) is one of the oldest photographic societies in the UK. It is affiliated to the East Anglia Federation of Photographic Societies,[1] which in turn is affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain.

The Society meet most Monday evenings in Walthamstow, a suburb of London, between 8pm and 10pm. Its 80+ members are a mixture of professional and amateur photographers of all ages and backgrounds, brought together by a love of photography.

At weekly meetings there are a mixture of talks from photographers, competitions for members, and member's evenings which will be practical sessions.

The Society holds a number of competitions each year, including the Walker Trophy, Centenary Trophy, Albert Bale Trophy[2] and the Goddard Memorial Trophy. These competitions are open to all members and are judged by external judges who are affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain.

Once a year the Society hold an annual exhibition in the autumn where the work of the Society is shown to members of the public.[3]

Other regular exhibitions are presented by the Society including the E17 Art Trail,[4] at the Winns Gallery[5] within (Lloyd Park), and the Vestry House Museum.[6][7]
