Hi All,

I believe our first Print competition since early 2020 was a great success last night.
Unfortunately I couldn’t make it along to the meeting.
Thank you to everyone who stepped into my role in my absence.

Well done to the committee members who worked so hard to bring this all together.

I believe there were once again some very impressive images from our very talented members. What a great start to the year.

Congratulations and well done everyone!

Our judge was Tim Moon, assisted by his wife Robin. Tim and Robin travelled from Sydney to judge for was.
I was very disappointed that I couldn’t be at the club to meet them and hear them judging.
They had already done a fantastic job of judging our digitals online.
I believe everyone will have benefitted from their thorough comments.

Thank you very much to Colleen and David Price for hosting Tim and Robin overnight.

Our next competition night is on Monday 14th February and at this stage it is anticipated that the meeting will be at the club in the auditorium.

Entries will be both print and digitals as per our pre-Covid days. 

Our February digital images are due in by 11:59 pm Saturday 29th January. That gives us only 18 more days. 

Unfortunately, if you miss the deadline there is nothing we can do. The images are passed onto the judge early in the morning on the day after and the competition cannot be reopened.

The prints sections will close 2 days before competition night (At 11:59 pm on the Saturday before the competition. Saturday 12thFebruary). 
You will then bring your prints with you on the night and have them on the stands by 6:30.

Please put the dates in your calendar where you’ll remember.

Our set subject for February is:
An Empty Road – The definition for  “An Empty Road” is…..
Any image that features an empty road. The empty road must be dominant in the scene.

As well as our set subject we will have are usual colour and mono categories.

Please remember that for 2022 we can still only enter 3 images each in total.

Note: We can only put in 2 entries per section (Colour, Mono or Set Subject) per member.  

We could choose 2 prints or 2 EDI’s or 1 Print and 1 EDI per section.
Remember, print and digital for each section is 1 category for the purposes of entering.

Our judge for February is Peita Ward.  Peita is another judge who will be visiting our area specially to judge for us.
Thank you very much to Susan and David Hansell for offering to act as overnight hosts for Peita.

Unfortunately, I don’t have any information about Peita to provide to you at this stage. I’ll let everyone know when I hear from Peita with a brief BIO.

Good luck to everyone and have fun taking and putting together some “An Empty Road” photos.
