January Newsletter


Next club night is on Thursday 30 January starting at 7.30 pm  at classroom 1, St John Ambulance Station.

It is also the night to bring along your best holiday shot, and your self assignment. Don't forget to upload an image of each, it is worth 1 point. 
Bring your cameras too for some practice at taking shadow images. Gisborne Exchange is due in March with the Shadows being the theme.

A very warm welcome to all new and existing members. If you are interested in joining, don't hesitate - come along and join the fun.

Christmas BBQ was held at an ideal location in a park on Riverside Drive and was thoroughly enjoyed by those who attended. Photo challenge was won by Aaron. Not sure who won the petanque challenge but that was also keenly contested.

Due 30 January 2020

Self Assignment is your own project for the year, where you get to choose your topic and put together a portfolio of three to five images. The idea is to push yourself to try new techniques and advance your knowledge and creativity.

I have noticed with some browsers you might get a notice about cookies which need to be enabled. (Some people have turned these off in their browsers). Just log in again and you should be fine.

Members' Area

Once you have logged in, you'll see a MEMBERS menu tab become available that is not showing for the general public. In this section you can find information for you, including Competition Rules and Enter Competitions.

Entering a competition

When you click on this menu tab, you will see all of the competitions for the year. These are coded for the year and the competition number.
You can now enter your images for these at any time during the year. 

Once you have uploaded your limit of two photos for any of the competitions, you won't be able to add any more to that competition. However, you can now go back and delete and change the images you have uploaded at any time until the competition closing date.

The competition pages for each month will now also keep a record of what images you have uploaded for each competition so that you have an easy reference.
