APS Competition – revised timelines

Our MyPhotoClub webmaster, Colin has been working during his holiday to get a entry system set up for all our camera clubs.  Big thanks to Colin!

He plans to have an entry page on our website where you will find a list of all your previous competition entries along with details like results which can be filtered, and thumbnails which will blow up to full size photos.  You will then be able to choose any photo that you want to contribute to this competition, or you can add a completely new photo – up to 4 in total.  Same image and file size criteria as our monthly comps applies, despite what the APS brochure says (I’ve checked!).  Our selectors will then use the website to choose the best 20 photos as our entry to the APS Competition.

And it gives us a bit more time than we first thought.  So new timelines…

Open date – as soon as Colin has the entry page working, which could be as early as 25 April.

Closing date for your entries 9 May

Selection process from 10 May.  We might need a little flexibility given that many will be at the Mungo event with no internet access at the same time.

Final selection and uploading will be end May

Please note that you can only represent one camera club.  This matters if you are members of more than one club.  If so please let me know.

More information to come when we’re ready to open the new entry page.

More on Steamfest… times and locations of a steamer

Helpful message from Mike M

Last night I received some times for the Steam train travelling up from Sydney.
It leaves Sydney, Friday, at 11:00 am arriving at Gosford at approx midday, and leaving Gosford at 1:00 pm and arriving at Broadmeadow at 2:15 pm, then arriving at Maitland at 2:50 pm.
So if anyone can work this time table to suit themselves and know a spot along the Rail Corridor, then some great shots could be taken.
Even at a station one could get shots as it steams through, ask permission, but they won’t mind.
If folk were to ring the station near them and ask for the ETA of the Steamer might help, having said that Morisset Station is not able to help with that.

APS competition at CLUB level

At tonights Club meeting we voted to participate in the APS 2018 Australia Cup, which is a competition between camera clubs.

We need to select our best 20 photos as a Club and no individual can submit more than 2 of those 20 photos. The photos will be judged electronically with awards at both club and individual level.

Part of the process will be selecting the 20 entries. There are many opinions on how to do this but there is no fixed process. We need to set this up fairly quickly as entries close 3 June.

So… please tell me if…

  1. You are interested in contributing photos
  2. You are interested in being part of the selection process

Reply to the email of this post should reach me.

Lets get our best talent out there!!!
