Ideas for 2020 Set Subjects

Hi all Wangi Workers Camera Club Members,

I know that 2020 seems a long way off, but it’s around this time of year that we organise our calendar for the following year.

At our next committee meeting we will be organising the set subjects for 2020.

To include all our members in the decision making process we would like to invite all club members to submit any ideas they have for set subjects.

Please email me your suggestions to suewinsley@iinet.net.au and I will compile a list of ideas to take to our next committee meeting. At the meeting we will then vote on the suggestions.

I would like to get all suggestions as soon as possible, so could you please let me know your suggestions by next Friday (16th August), that would be great.

If you would prefer to write your suggestions on a bit of paper and give it to me at next Monday’s comp night that would be fine.

Cheers, Sue Winsley (Competition Steward)

August Competition

Hi All,
Our August competition is fast approaching.
Our set subject for August is one of our regular subjects that we have every year. It is “Environment Landscape/Seascape”.
The definition for Environment Landscape/Seascape is:
Nature except that human elements may be present in the image, and the story telling value of a photograph shall not be weighed more than the pictorial quality of the image.

Of course we also have our usual “Open Colour” and “Open Mono” as well.

Please remember you can choose to enter EDI or Print or a combination of both.
Just remember that we can only enter 3 images in total and only 2 in any category.

Our judge for August is Arthur Roy. Arthur is a very accomplished photographer and judge and has judged for our club previously.
Here is a little information about Arthur:

  • Arthur has a string of acceptances, awards & publications. And as you will see from the following summary of his successes, he is well qualified to critique all these images before us.
  • He was first published in The International Photography 2000 magazine with a scenic image
  • SMH 2006 – Birdlife in Kakudo
  • Egret Chasing Fish was published in Ken Duncan’s Paradise Revealed, the Newcastle Herald & SMH in 2015
  • Winner of Australian Conservancy National competition 2015 & cover picture for ABCRA’s Rodeo Christmas issue 2015
  • After joining The Entrance Camera Club in 2009, Arthur has won 16 wall plaques, ( 2 from Top Shot), 26 International  & 23 National Medals
  • He also has won 3 International FIAP Blue Badges for Best Exhibitor in Belgium, India & Australia
  • 3 trophies Nationally for Best Exhibitor (2013 to 2015)
  • As well as hundreds of acceptances Nationally & Internationally

Our August competition night is Monday 12th August.

July Competition

Hi All, our July competition is almost here.

EDI’s are due in by 11pm on Saturday 29th June and our print uploads are due by 11pm on Saturday 6th July.

Our Set Subject for July is “Soft and Subdued”. The definition for this is “A photo that gives a soft gentle feeling where the light is not harsh or vibrant. There should be no strong colours dominating the image”.
I can’t wait to see what imaginative ideas our talented group comes up with.
Of course we also have our other usual categories of “Colour” & “Mono”.

Our Judge for July is Vanessa Blagden.
Vanessa has judged for us on quite a few occasions before.
She has been interested in photography for quite some time. In 1990, she and her husband David went on a sailing adventure out to the Solomon Islands and PNG for 2 years. She has photographs and articles published during this time.
After that they ran a very successful photography business (D&V Photography) which employed 12 photographers and 5 office staff. Unfortunately Vanessa’s husband passed away and the business finished in 2012.
Vanessa and her husband also photographed for National Geographic and have had many images of birds, lizards, snakes and frogs published.
In 2012 Vanessa changed to family portraiture and photographed up to 500 families a year, employing 3 photographers and 5 office staff. This business closed in 2015.
Vanessa has spoken internationally on 8 occasions regarding photography and running a photographic business.

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).
