I just found today out that the Interclub for the FCC is open for entries. Entires open today and close on November 1st. There is little time to get our entries into the the 5 categories. Categories are, Monochrome, Colour, Nature, Creative and Australian Landscape. We can enter 10 images into each of the categories and members can only put two images into each category. I can choose the images from the Competition site over the past year and this may be the most efficient answer as there is not much time till the closing date November 1. If you don’t wish for me to choose any of your images please email on dizel@bbsol.com. If you have any images that fit any of the categories and you would like them to be considered that are not on the website, please send them to me, club size 1920 x 1200, this will be a great help, thank you.

Nature (Digital Image) –From 1st January 2015 the FCC has adopted the APS definition for Nature. “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 weighedmore 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.
