  • 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.

Tin City Tour

We currently have 10 people on the Tin City tour which means we still have room for another ten. here are the details

 

Tin City Details
I have organised a 2 hour tour of Tin City for the camera club. A 4WD bus will take us down to Tin City then you have 2 hours to wander around Tin City or go up on the the sand Dunes.  The bus will stay at Tin City for the duration of our time if you wish to seek shelter. The trip offers spectacular views of the historic tin city and the surrounding sand dunes. The advantage of going at this time of the year is that the sun is fairly low offering better light and shadows for the middle of the day.
Important note:
There is no shade or toilets at Tin City and we will be there for 2 hours
You each need to phone up and book/pay for  your seat on the bus which has a limit of 21.  When you phone up say that you wish to book a seat on the Tin city tour under the name of Wangi Camera club or just mention my name.  When you have booked can you send me an email so I can keep an eye on the numbers. The details are:
Cost $60 per person
