  • Our Competition Program is available from our website.
  • There are 3 grades, Advanced, A and B. B Grade is usually for beginner photographers.
  • 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 financial 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.

To get to the point score log on as normal then click on Members, then click on competitions. On the same line as the heading on the right is a button labeled Point Score. Click that

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

2019 competition entries

Our application is now available to accept entries for January and February next year. At this stage only those 2 months will accept entries as Colin is in the process of doing major updates which will come into effect from March. Under the new guidelines EDI entries will close 9 days before the competition. Prints will still be the same which is the Saturday night before the comp night (2 days). This means EDIs for January need to be uploaded before 11pm on the 5th of January

This video shows how the new entry pages will operate in March   ://youtu.be/K-Mrgz1ZfJE
