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.

Photo Shoot: Yarra Valley

After its omission from last year's syllabus we're doing it this year. We'll work out an itinerary for the day as we get closer to the date, but rest assured it will be worth the trip, with at least one pitstop at a local winery for a tasting, but not too much if we're driving.
