  • 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.

Delay for those attending tonight

Just for info. There is a bad accident at Myuna Bay, Diana has been stuck there for for some time, which will impact those coming from south of Wangi. Hopefully it may be cleared in time

PSA Interclub Update

The deadline for registering our club for the 2019/2020 year of inter club competitions is Oct 15 2019. For that year we will be entering four sections – Open, Creative, Nature and Travel. The closing dates and number of rounds will be standardised across all of the sections. The closing dates are Nov 15, Feb 15 and April 15.

I will be asking all members who want to participate to sign an image release so that PSA has permission to display your images on the PSA website.

I received a list of “Best of the Best” for the past year in the Creative Division and our club figured very well with one Gold Medal and three HMs out of ten awards.

Ideas for 2020 Set Subjects

Hi all Wangi Workers Camera Club Members,

I know that 2020 seems a long way off, but it’s around this time of year that we organise our calendar for the following year.

At our next committee meeting we will be organising the set subjects for 2020.

To include all our members in the decision making process we would like to invite all club members to submit any ideas they have for set subjects.

Please email me your suggestions to suewinsley@iinet.net.au and I will compile a list of ideas to take to our next committee meeting. At the meeting we will then vote on the suggestions.

I would like to get all suggestions as soon as possible, so could you please let me know your suggestions by next Friday (16th August), that would be great.

If you would prefer to write your suggestions on a bit of paper and give it to me at next Monday’s comp night that would be fine.

Cheers, Sue Winsley (Competition Steward)
