Tamworth Camera Club has been helping enthusiasts from across the region to best capture that special moment for some time and now that support has been returned after taking out the May round of Greater Bank’s #GreaterNewEngland Community Funding Program.
The club has received $3000 for winning the public vote, while runners up, North Tamworth Bowling Club and Neywarra Anaiwan Language Revival Group (Armidale), have each received $1,000.
Tamworth Camera Club provides a forum for members of all ages to come together and share ideas, knowledge, techniques and to help each other become the best photographer they can be.
According to Tamworth Camera Club President, Digby Brown, the funding windfall will support their regular activities.
“Tamworth Camera Club meets several times a month and provides an outlet for people within the community to learn photography through workshops, presentations, and outings,” Digby said.
“Photography allows people to express themselves by being able to create physical memories that can be shared.
“The club is always willing to assist anyone who requires help with their photographic needs, and anyone is welcome to join in on our activities regardless of their experience.
“This funding from Greater Bank will allow us to run a number of workshops and community events to help promote photography in Tamworth.”

Greater New England Regional Sales Manager, Will Boyd, said it’s terrific for people to have a creative outlet.
“Taking photos is an activity that pretty much anyone can do and having a club that is welcoming to all comers means that even beginners can access advice to help them get started,” Will said.
“We are delighted to be able to provide some support to the Tamworth Camera Club in the same way they provide support to their members and opportunities to the community.”
