10 Club Portrait Competition 2021 results

For those of you who missed the 10 Club Portrait Competition presentation event last Tuesday evening, and would like to view it at your leisure, the recording of the event is available on YouTube at CCC 10 Clubs Portrait Judging 24th Aug 2021

Please join me in congratulating Angela McLeod for her awarded image “Evil”, which gained an Honorable Mention in the Creative section. Well done, Angela!

Angela McLeod - Evil

And well done to all the makers of images the WCC submitted! Our club did well to come 4th. Contrary to what Ken Spence said on Tuesday night, our club did have to stick to the “100 Members” rule as we had 102 members on the deadline. This meant that we could not double up on makers and were forced to submit images from 25% of our membership. To come fourth against larger clubs was very well done!

Our entries and their scores can be viewed in our Camberwell Portrait 2021 galleries.

I also want to take the opportunity to thank Helen Warnod, who was our designated steward for this competition. This was a challenging comp to manage as there were a larger-than-normal set of rules to navigate, and Helen did a great job for us. So, thank you Helen, and the selection team, for a great job.

Reminder: Workshop & AGM Tonight

We have a couple of things happening tonight over Zoom.

First up, we have the club’s AGM commencing at 7:30PM. I appreciate this may not be everyone’s cup-of-tea, but it is an important event on the club calendar.

The AGM will be immediately followed by a workshop on post-processing software options led by Geoff Shaw, and ably assisted by John Noble on this occasion. This is the first part of a two-part series looking at alternatives to the usual Adobe suite of products (Bridge, Camera Raw, Photoshop, Lightroom etc.). The second part will be presented later in the year.

See you tonight.
Cheers, Russell.

Valley Reserve Exhibition – NAIDOC Week 2021

Recently we held an exhibition of photographs from Valley Reserve in conjunction with the City of Monash’s NAIDOC week celebrations.

The displayed images can be viewed in our Valley Reserve Exhibition – NAIDOC Week 2021 gallery and the artist’s statements can be found in the catalogue (PDF 3.7MB).

Thanks to Vicki Moritz, John Noble, Trace O’Rourke, Michael Silverstein and Colleen Singleton for organising the exhibition.

NAIDOC Week Valley Reserve Exhibition

In conjunction with the City of Monash’s NAIDOC week celebrations our exhibition of photographs from Valley Reserve will be open this week in the Track Gallery.

The photographs are inspired by Aboriginal knowledge, culture and the unique flora and fauna found in Valley Reserve, Mount Waverley. We engaged with Aboriginal Elders and artists in the lead up to this year’s NAIDOC Week celebrations, to listen and learn about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, culture and Country.

More information about the council’s other NAIDOC week activities can be found at NAIDOC Week 2021.
