About-Us

The 2nd Monday of the month is our competition night.

  • Our Competition Program is available from our website.
  • There are 3 grades, Advanced, A and Open. Open Grade is usually for beginner photographers and for those members who just enjoy taking photographs without doing extensive editing.
  • We have photos presented both in print form as well as Digital (EDI) option. (EDI – Electronic Data Images)
  • Both Digital and Print contests require you to enter online on this website and include a digital copy of each entry. This will be displayed in an image gallery on the website
  •  All photographs are displayed and critiqued by the judge on the night. Most judges provide very beneficial feedback, from which we all learn
  • At the end of the year we run our “Photo of the Year”competition (POTY). The photos entered in this competition must be photographs that have been entered in competitions throughout the year.

The 4th Monday of the month is our tutorial night.

  • We have had many and varied tutorials and continue to do so every month.
  • Suggestions from members as to what tutorials they would like to have are very welcome.

The 1st Monday of the Month is a Portfolio group night

  • Members choose their own interest subject to collect 6-10 images on.
  • This is not for competition but to allow members to explore their own photography journey.

Visitors are always welcome to come along however visitors cannot enter any competitions until they become a member of the club. Follow the link under About us for info on joining.

June Competition Night

Our June competition night is due to be on Monday 13th June.

This is the Queen’s Birthday public holiday.

Due to the high cost of staff wages on public holidays the club has brought in a new rule that means we can’t have any of our meetings on public holidays.

We are moving the June competition night from the Monday to the Tuesday.

Our June competition night will now be on Tuesday 14th June.

Please mark this on your calendars.

As cut off dates for entries are already scheduled into the website and would be too difficult to change for a one off, the cut off dates will remain the same.

Thank you for your understanding.
