We had so many great images entered this year in both our club competition and our interclub comps, a testament to the wonderful work of our members. Below are the results of our end of year awards. Congratulations to our winners.

Images of the year

The image of the year for print and digital categories are awarded by a panel of judges from another camera club. This year we welcomed a four-panel team from the Southern Suburbs Photographic Society who provided us with some valuable feedback on a range of images that were presented for consideration this year. Traditionally we only have a single print image of the year and digital image of the year, however, this year the team from Southern Suburbs Photographic Society awarded 2nd, 3rd and Highly Commended awards to other images entered.

Upcoming

Workshop: Matt Cutting

To help out members who don't regularly mount their printed works we're putting on a special informal meeting a week prior to our official start so you can enter prints into our first competition of the year. There will be folks who regularly matt their own work in attendance to help us out and they'll have the equipment for you to use. We'll also have matt board available for purchase for a small fee, or you can bring your own along. 

Bring along the prints you wish to make matts for and go away having made your first matts and armed with the knowledge you need to enter prints throughout the year.
