End of year competition 2021

Entries for our end of year competition are due on Tuesday 2 November 2021. Of images entered throughout the year, members can select from those to enter the end of year competitions:

  • Two images for Colour EDI
  • Two images for Monochrome EDI
  • One image for Creative EDI

Due to the current circumstances we will not have a print end of year competition.

The entry must have been entered into a 2021 monthly competition and in the same format. Colour EDI and Monochrome EDI images were entered in the Open EDI and Set Subject EDI sections, Creative EDI images were entered in the Creative EDI section.

Entries are due on Tuesday 2 November 2021 through the Competition upload system. Instead of uploading images again you will be able to select from your previous entries as all entries submitted this year are in the system.

The subject for the President’s Trophy is “Just the right…” with your entry due on Wednesday 3 November 2021, this is to the uploaded via the competition upload system.

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.
