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.

Urgent Call for PSA Interclub Entries

The Round 3 PSA comps are up in the Competition section of the website. There is a fairly quick turnaround and entries close at midnight on Sunday 5th April. I have left in all images which were not selected in previous rounds. You can submit three images in each of the four sections, so add to or change the images already entered. Image sizes are the same as for club comps.

Seeing as many people are self isolating, this is an opportunity to get online and give us your best images. There has been some great work in the club comps recently. This is an opportunity to try out some new/different images.

I would like to encourage all members especially B Grade to enter. Nothing ventured, nothing gained and you may be pleasantly surprised.

PSA Interclub Results Round 2 Travel

This round we came equal tenth and overall after two rounds equal eighth. We are slightly ahead of our neighbours at Belmont having each scored the same in this round. Travel has traditionally not been our strong suit and this result gives us a marker to improve on. Again, thanks to all who have submitted images. I have put the individual scores for Belmont as a point of comparison. Please click “more” for more details.

Sad news, Charles Brown

We’ve just learned that one of our founding members Charles Brown has passed away about 2 weeks ago.

I’m told Charles was a character. He was a foundation member of the Morisset Photography Club which later became the Wangi Workers Camera Club and he was active in the club until a couple of years ago when his health deteriorated. A willing supporter of the club, he helped to boost membership a few years ago by getting his former student, Ken Duncan to give a special presentation at the club.

We send our sincere sympathy to his wife Dot.

Ideas for May’s Mystery Subject

Hi Everyone,
Last night at our comp night… which was fantastic… I mentioned about our May Set Subject being our Mystery Subject.

How it’ll work:
Between now and our April Competition night I will collect ideas from our members on what topics they would like.
These topics will be put into a hat at our April Comp night and our Mystery Subject will be drawn out.
Members will then have between then and the closing dates for our May competition to shoot and prepare their images.
The images MUST be taken during this time frame.

Please email me your ideas to suewinsley@iinet.net.au

NOTE:
When choosing ideas, please keep in mind that they must be ideas for images that ALL members will possibly be able to shoot in that time frame. EG: Don’t say something like snow as due to where we all live, it is highly unlikely that all members, if any, would have access to snow during this time frame.

I’m looking forward to getting everyone’s ideas.
