A new camera club has launched in East Devon, giving residents the chance to have their photographs published in the Exmouth Journal.

A new Facebook group has launched called Devon Camera Club.

Each week, a theme will be set by one of our journalists and the best pictures posted in our Facebook group will be collected up and featured in the next edition of the Journal.

Last week's theme was sunsets and sunrises. The week before that, we asked for pictures of animals in their natural habitat.

This week's topic is beautiful buildings and monuments. New topics are published in the group every week. 

The gallery at the top of this page showcases just some of the stunning pictures we recieved for sunsets and sunrises this week.

Thanks to David Goddard and Sue Badd who snapped these pictures in Exmouth and Sidmouth last week.

In addition to the printed product, the entire Journal is available online through our e-edition service alongside a breaking news service on our website.

Published each Wednesday, the Journal is respected for its balanced reporting and prides itself on being the paper of record for the area.

Sport plays a major role in the newspaper’s success, with unrivalled coverage of football, rugby and cricket, as well as fishing, snooker and bowls, to name a few.

The Journal covers the popular seaside resort of Exmouth and surrounding areas, including Lympstone, Topsham and Woodbury.

It goes on sale every Wednesday in all good retailers. Budding photographers can go out and buy the papers and see their work published in print. 

The new Facebook group is an exciting way for photographers to have their work exposed in print and on the Journal website in news articles.

Interested people can join using the link beelow and keep an eye on any updates each week.
