March Competition

What a great night we had on Monday 10th February with all our creative images. Well done everyone. We have some very creative members in our club.
And well done to Kim on his very informative judging. It can’t have been an easy job. I’m sure glad I didn’t have to be the judge.

By now we should be turning our talents to nature. Our March competition night is on Monday 9th March.
Our digital uploads close on Saturday 29th February at 11pm and our print uploads close on Saturday 7th March at 11pm.

Please remember that we are able to enter 4 images in TOTAL.


Our set subject for February is “Nature”. Our definition in our program is as follows:
Any Nature Photo that conforms to the “Nature” guidelines detailed on our website in the competition rules section.
Nature guidelines are very strict, so please check the competition rules on our website.

I know we have some very talented “Nature” photographers in our club and I am really looking forward to seeing some fantastic images.

Of course we also have our other usual categories of “Colour” & “Mono”.

Our Judge for March is Diane Schofield. Diane has been a regular judge for us over the years and we always enjoy her input. For those of us who have not yet had the pleasure of experiencing Diane as a judge, below is a bit of information about Diane.

DIANE SCOFIELD

  • Her first camera was a Box Brownie, but photography took a back seat as she completed her studies to become a Librarian, work full time & raise twins.
  • Her passion for photography was renewed when Diane studied photography & dark room techniques under Allen Chawner at Newcastle University
  • She used a Pentax, but progressed to digital cameras using Canon – 10, 20, 30D, & 5D MarkII models
  • Now uses a 40D & 7D & enjoys take landscape, nature & ‘sneak shots ‘of people.
  • Diane has shared her passion for photography with husband Colin & they completed the NSW  FCC  Judges course & have since judged many competitions in the Hunter & Central Coast areas.  She has also judged at the International Maitland Salon, the NPF, the Mattara Festival & at the Henry Lawson competition & the National Newcastle Show.

Good luck to everyone and if anyone needs any more information you can email me on suewinsley@iinet.net.au or ring me on 0417677438

Cheers, Sue Winsley (Competition Steward).
