AGM 2019 Agenda

Nomination Forms

AGM 2018 Minutes

Our monthly tutorial will follow the AGM.

You can nominate for any of the Committee positions and if we have more than one nominee there will be a vote. The formal voting is for President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Competition Steward and two members.

This year our President and Treasurer will be standing down and we thank Toni and Joy for all their hard work on behalf of the club over the last few years.

We also have several important supporting roles which are appointed by the Committee rather than by vote. Please feel free to speak to any Committee member if you would like to talk about one of these roles or ways you can contribute to running the club…. and have some fun doing it.

PSA Interclub Creative (3) Results

Once again Wangi has excelled in the Creative Interclub. We achieved the top score in both A and B groups with a score of 83 points. The next highest was 79 points for the club which beat us in the last round. We achieved four awards and the lowest of our scores was 13 out of 15 so well done to all involved. There is a possibility that we may be promoted to the higher level group A next year.


These are the images entered by our members and you can see that our selection scoring is pretty consistent with the results above.

Invitation to a Visual Presentation

INVITATION TO A VISUAL PRESENTATION

Wangi Camera Club is pleased to invite the members of our club and their guests to an informative and visual evening with Adriano Carrideo on Monday night the 27th May starting at 7pm.

Entry is $5.00

Raffle tickets will be available on the night for $5 each or 3 for $10 to be drawn at this event and the prizes are:-

1st Prize: Canon 750D DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm lens, valued at circa $700

2nd Prize : Canon Optical Cleaning kit

About the Presentation

“The aim of my presentation called “Applying both Art and Science” is to provide an insight into how my personal process of image creating and thoughts come together. The talk touches upon universal design tools used in art/design theory. Tools I found personally useful that helped me understand the psychology of art and visual presentation. I feel this insight has helped me engage the audience and promote my personal interest with evocative landscape and street/wildlife photography as well as hopefully revealing something deeper, richer and magical about the world around us. The simple act of creating images is exciting for me as it often feels like a never-ending experiment, practising and testing different photographic and post processing techniques with different outcomes”.

Check out Adriano’s website here, your sure to be impressed!

Matt board for competition nights

The club has 2 size matt board requirements: 400 x 300mm for A4 photos and 500 x 400mm for A3 photos. We have recently gone to A3 and still working out the process. A lot of the A3 matt board supplied to the club is cut to an imperial measurement of 20″ x 16″ (508 x 406mm) . This was to suit other clubs still using imperial frames such as Maitland. Brad advises that that is no longer an issue for them and they can cater for 500 x 400 as well. This was not going to be any issue for our club as the stands can cater for both, it has only become a bit of a problem now that we display the judges choice photos at the workers club. The frames we have bought are to suit 500 x 400 and the imperial ones wont fit without being trimmed. This is only a problem if you win Judges Choice and have the old size matt board. Mike Martin who very kindly cuts our matt board has advised that it is easier for him to cut 500 x 400 as he has a special jig set up. If you have some of the imperial matt board then there are several members with matt cutters who could trim the extra mm off. David

Point Score

I have turned off the website point score system as it has errors which we are still waiting to have fixed. Due to problems with the site several committee members have been keeping a separate tally of the scores. I have all the spreadsheets that are downloadable on my PC and have a program that can read them and produced the scores. These are the scores following last nights competition. I can also provide a list of individual entries (Title and award) if you feel there is a discrepancy between your tally and these points. – David
