First comp for the year has us off to a great start. Thanks to everyone who entered and congratulations to those who have earned awards.
This is our first ‘official’ meeting of the year, where we will welcome in the new year with a Sausage Sizzle, a la Graeme. (Thank you Graeme for providing the BBQ.)
We will be socialising, renewing and developing new friendships, and welcoming new members. All you need to bring is something to drink. We will have the usual tea and coffee available.
Please note the slightly earlier start time. Anyone wishing to arrive even earlier (from around 6.30pm) is more than welcome … To assist with the setting-up … of course!
Our three 2018 EOY winners will be giving us a “How I Did It” presentation later in the evening - sharing with us how they made their winning images. And … another reminder ... entries are due for our first competition “Monochrome”.
The end of year results for 2018 are in, congrats to the winners.
Our aggregate scores are determined by number of entries and places earned, each affording the entrant points towards their end of year aggregate score.

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.
