President’s Trophy 2019 – Moment Of Impact

With only two more competition nights remaining (October 1st, and October 29th) our club year is building up to its finale. That can only mean one thing… it is time to announce the subject for the 2019 President’s Trophy competition.

The subject for this year is… Moment Of Impact

I am not going to provide any further definition as I want us all to enjoy the full spectrum of creativity that might come from leaving the subject stated as-is. Above all, I really hope that you have some fun with it.

Please note that your images must the submitted to club’s competition email address by the end of the day, Tuesday November 5, 2019 (Melbourne Cup Day).

Bring on the “Wow” (and maybe a few laughs).

Good luck and regards, Russell.

End of year competition 2019

Entries for our end of year competition are due on Tuesday 29 October 2018. Of images entered throughout the year, members can select from those to enter the end of year competition with two images in each of:

  • Open print
  • Colour EDI
  • Monochrome EDI

The entry must have been entered into a 2019 monthly competition and in the same format. A print must have been previously entered as a print, and an EDI must have been previously entered as an EDI. An EDI cannot be printed and entered as a print, or vice versa.

On Tuesday 29 October 2019 bring your prints along to be placed in the competition box, but do not resend your EDI files to the competition address, you only need to send through the filename of each entry.

The subject for the President’s Trophy will be announced soon, your entry for that will be due (emailed to the competition address) on Tuesday 5 November 2019.
