Well the results are in and we did extremely well. We came second in our Group B and third overall when you take Group A scores into consideration, we came third overall. Out of our six entries, our members achieved four awards, more than any club in our group. Congratulations Wangi. If you have not already done so, would you please submit two creative images in the PSA Interclub (3) comp and lets see if we can get to number one.

PSA Interclub Nature Judging Results

Below is a PDF of the people who judged and the images selected to represent our club highlighted in orange.

As we are only permitted to use one image from each member, there were some higher scoring images which were not able to be used. We will save those for the next time.

Well done everybody and thanks to the people who submitted images and to those who voted.

Judging PSA Interclub Nature (3)

Message for all Advanced and A grade members.

This comp is now ready for judging. You have until midnight tomorrow Friday 12th April to complete your scoring and I will then close judging and submit our club entries. Once you navigate to the scoring page, it is a fairly quick process. Please get involved and help select our club entries.

Procedure is – Log in, go to members, then competitions. Scroll to this competition and click the Blue scoring button. You then click on the Green button for this comp. You click on the first image and it will display the image with a row of scoring buttons along the top numbered 1 – 5. To score you just click the number button to score that image. You score your own entries as normal. When you have scored the first image a score will show and the next image will be displayed. Continue through the 30 entries.

Guide for allocating scores:

1 Does not meet the definition (see definition below) 2 Below standard 3 Acceptable image 4 High standard and possible inclusion 5 High standard and a definite inclusion

Scores will be totalled and the best six images from six different members will be selected.

Remember that story telling is most important followed by all the usual technical aspects. PSA Nature Definition below:

Nature photography is restricted to the use of the photographic process to depict all branches of natural history, except anthropology and archaeology, in such a fashion that a well-informed person will be able to identify the subject material and certify its honest presentation. The story telling value of a photograph must be weighed more than the pictorial quality while maintaining high technical quality.

Human elements shall not be present, except where those human elements are integral parts of the nature story such as nature subjects, like barn owls or storks, adapted to an environment modified by humans, or where those human elements are in situations depicting natural forces, like hurricanes or tidal waves.

Scientific bands, scientific tags or radio collars on wild animals are permissible. Photographs of human created hybrid plants, cultivated plants, feral animals, domestic animals, or mounted specimens are ineligible, as is any form of manipulation that alters the truth of the photographic statement.

Thanks Ian English Coordinator PSA Interclub

Results of PSA Interclub Travel (2)

Another excellent performance from our club members.  Congratulations to the selected members.

We finished fourth overall in the B section and ahead of our neighbouring club Belmont 16s who finished equal ninth.

See the tables below for the individual results and the club list and rankings.

The next Interclub is the third Nature comp and we have some images entered already.  You are allowed to submit two images either new or from your club entries.  The entry process is very simple and will take you all of five minutes if you select images already entered in the club.

Please select your best so we can do even better next time.

PSA Interclub Nature Selections

https://wangi.myphotoclub.com.au/mypc-club-man-comp-stats/?webform_id=379

Thank you very much to the 18 members who submitted images.

Due to the very short lead time the six images representing the club were chosen last night by myself, Dianne and David Vane who was with us last night. In future there will be a voting system to select images and that will be explained in due course.  Images were selected on Nature Guidelines with story telling being important along with technical excellence.

The six images selected are:

Andrew Gardyne                   Territorial Dispute

Brad Le Broque                      Spying Lunch

Colleen Price                           Turtle Snack Time

David Hansell                         Puffin with Sand Eels

Ian English                              Cicada Emerging

Sue Winsley                             Get in Line

NEW – PSA Interclub Competitions

 

The Photographic Society of America (PSA) Interclub Competitions

 

The Wangi Camera club has just become a club member of PSA with the specific purpose of entering the international interclub competitions run by PSA during the year.

 

Our PSA Membership details are

 

Wangi Workers Camera Club
MEMBER ID: 993439
01/09/2019 – 9 Jan 2019
City: Kilaben Bay, State/Province: NSW, Country: AUSTRALIA
Website: https://wangi.myphotoclub.com.au

 

We are the second club in our area after Belmont 16s to join PSA.

 

I have undertaken the responsibility of being the coordinator for our club and am excited that this will provide a great opportunity for members to enter their images against other clubs from all over the world at no cost to the entrant.

 

There are five interclub digital divisions and I am registering for all of these.

 

Open                                  (Four rounds per year)

Creative                             (Three rounds per year)

Nature                               (Three rounds per year)

Photojournalism               (Four rounds per year)

Photo Travel                     (Three rounds per year)

 

We do not have to participate in all of these as we are joining mid stream so to speak, so we can enter a few to get an idea how it works and then when the PSA Interclub new year commences (usually December), we can decide to go for all of them or maybe just some.

 

In each round, 10% receive awards and 10% receive HM Ribbons.

 

We can only submit six images in each round and these can be by six members or two from one member and four from four members or any other combination as long as one member submits no more than two images.  I would like to see six members submitting in each division but if we are short of images we will allow doubles.  This is how Belmont have set up theirs.

 

I want to encourage as many members to participate as possible and we will work out a selection process to choose our entries and an entry box on our website to submit entries.

 

All members of our club might decide that they enter in one or two divisions or all if they wish but that depends on where the individual members feel their strengths lie.

I will put out a call for images with details of sizes etc when the time comes.

 

I have a new email address  for  PSA dealings and would like any comments, discussion and expressions of interest from members interested in taking part.
