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 Special Interests group night

  • Members choose their own interest subject to collect 4-10 images on.
  • This is not for competition but to allow members to explore their own photography journey.

Missing Emails should all have arrived by now

Colin from the myphotoclub website has informed me that all the missing emails from our June competition should have all arrived by now.

Hopefully everyone has now received theirs.

Getting emails after comp night

After comp night it is normal for our members to get a few emails.
One of the emails that our members normally receive is one that gives them their personal awards for that month’s entries.

After our last comp night it was brought to my attention from some members that they had not received that email.

I have contacted Colin Woods who runs the website and below is his reply.

Hi Sue
The first thing to check is if the persons concerned are getting any emails from the system. IE:  Acknowledgment messages when they enter.
If not then they need to check their email address in their contact details and that the messages are not going to junk/spam.
Otherwise provide me with a few names and of members who are reporting this and I will check the email logs
.

If you are affected can you please email me and I’ll make a list of names of affected members and let Colin know so that we can sort out what’s going on.

Thanks.

Feedback on our judges images

Our judge for tomorrow night, Graham Cam, is going to bring along about 3 of his prints and is hoping to get feedback on his work too.

These prints will be put on display for all our members to view.

Ian and Dianne will be the offical “Judges” for his images, but it would be great for all our members to view these images and I’m sure he’d appreciate any feedback.

I think this is a great idea.

Reminder of change of date for our June competition.

I just wanted to remind everyone that our June competition will be held on the 1st Monday of the month (Monday 3rd June) rather than our usual 2nd Monday of the month. (That’s next Monday).
Members have already been informed of this change, but with our busy lives it’s easy to forget these things so I thought I’d put out another post to prompt our memories.
The reason for this change is beyond our control. The 2nd Monday of the month in June falls on a public holiday and Wangi Workers don’t allow any functions on public holidays due to the increased cost of wages.

All entries will need to be uploaded by 11:59 pm this coming Saturday (Saturday 1st June).

I’m really looking forward to seeing all the self portraits.
But of course, if you don’t get to do a self portrait there are also our colour and mono categories.
