Our club is based at the Wangi Workers Club at Wangi Wangi NSW

We meet at the Wangi Workers’ Club in the Dobell Room at 7.00pm on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month.

The club’s mission statement is:

“a shared enjoyment of the art and craft of photography in a learning environment”

Use the green About Us button for information on our club and what we do.


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 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 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.

Visitors are always welcome to come along however visitors cannot enter any competitions until they become a member of the club. Follow the link under About us for info on joining.

Vacancy, Tutorial Co-ordinator – potentially job share

Would you like to help out with our monthly tutorials?  Have brilliant ideas for interesting topics?  Know the right kind of photographers we could invite to share their knowledge?  WE NEED YOU!!!

After a long time filling our tutorial sessions with interesting topics, John Frost is stepping down as Tutorial Co-ordinator.  BIG THANKS JOHN FOR ALL YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS.

John is quite happy to continue to help with tutorials, but would like someone to take over co-ordination.  Better still would be a small team to share the work and make it easier for everyone. 

If you’re interested, or just want to learn more please contact John, Toni or Susan

Change of date for AGM, now 23 July

Our AGM is typically held on the tutorial night in June but since we have an excellent speaker on Landscape photography coming that night the Committee has agreed to move the AGM to the July tutorial night, ie 23 July.  We’ll be sending out the agenda, nomination forms, and items to discuss in the next couple of weeks.

In the meantime, please think about nominating to join the Committee, and whether you would like to raise anything at the AGM.

More soon…
