About-Us

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.

PSA Interclub Results Creative, Nature, Travel and PJ

We again have done well in Creative but mixed results in the others.

In Nature the judging club was from Beijing and you will see that Mike Martin’s image was scored 3 with the note “Cultivated Plant”. I was very annoyed at this as I was sitting in the boat on Yellow Water Billabong in Kakadu NP beside Mike when he took it. I have written to the interclub coordinator and nature Div Director expressing my disappointment and annoyance and also asked that the judging club be sent my email. Unfortunately it is after the fact and cannot be changed now. We all know about judges interpretations !!

In the Travel, I made a mistake and submitted John and Janet Payne’s images both under Janet’s name. Apologies for that, first mistake in three years so a lesson for me to triple check.

Congrats to the all the award winners coming from both Advanced and A grades.

January Competition

Hi All,

We had a great night at our Christmas party and presentations night last night. 
It was fantastic to meet again in person at the club.

Congratulations to all our award getters!

Our 2022 comp is just around the corner. I hope everyone is finding some time to prepare their images.

Our next competition night is on Monday 10th January and will be at the club in the auditorium.  

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

Our January digital images are due in by 11pm Saturday 25th December (YES .. Christmas Day). That gives us only 11 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.
If you miss the deadline for digitals you’ll still have the option of prints.

The prints sections will close 2 days before competition night (At 11:59 pm on the Saturday before the competition. Saturday 8thJanuary). 
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 January is:
Travel – The definition for  “Travel” is…..
Any travel photo that conforms to the “Travel” guidelines which are detailed on our website in the competition rules section.

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 January is Timothy MoonHis wife Robin will be coming too and will be helping with the judging as a co-judge.
Below is a bit of information about Tim and his wife Robin:

Good luck to everyone and enjoy taking and putting together some “Travel” photos.
We may not have had much chance to travel overseas over the last couple of years but I’m sure many of us will have travel images from years past that we can re-visit. 
Also, many members have managed to slip in a few short trips to places around Australia and we’d all enjoy seeing these images.

Cheers, Sue Winsley (Competition Steward).

Changes to 2022 Competition Calendar

Hi Everyone,

I have just emailed an updated Competition Calendar for 2022 to all members.

In this email I explained that we made the changes to accommodate the judge that we particularly wanted for the “Photo Journalism” Set Subject.

I anyone didn’t receive this email please let me know.

I actually think a few members may have received it twice. I apologise for this. My email is being a bit temperamental today.
