2017 End of Year Awards

We had so many great images entered this year in both our club competition and our interclub comps, a testament to the wonderful work of our members. Below are the results of our end of year awards. Congratulations to our winners.

Aggregate Awards 2017

Images of the year

The image of the year for print and digital categories are awarded by a panel of judges from another camera club. This year we welcomed a four-panel team from the Southern Suburbs Photographic Society who provided us with some valuable feedback on a range of images that were presented for consideration this year. Traditionally we only have a single print image of the year and digital image of the year, however, this year the team from Southern Suburbs Photographic Society awarded 2nd, 3rd and Highly Commended awards to other images entered.

Presentation: Creative Preproduction with Emma Gilette

Emma has been a visitor to our club on several occasions and on each one members have gone away inspired by her words and work. On this visit, Emma will be discussing the idea of "creative preproduction", looking at ways we can use our equipment and make stunning images in camera using blur, panning, lighting, and other techniques.

Find out more about Emma on her site Emma Gilette Photography.
