About Us

PHPC is a medium-sized club of around 40-50 members. Our members range in skill from enthusiastic novices to experienced photographers. The club has a few members who are judges.

We have a number of members who run the mentoring program for our newer members to learn the capabilities of their camera(s). We are large enough to support the growth of members but small enough to be a community, where all members can know each other. The club is here to challenge us to get the best from ourselves and our cameras

Re: The Last Competition of the Year – Our Club

Dear members,

Our final competition, Our Club, is fast approaching – please read the important information below. We will hold this comp via zoom (same link as last month) on Monday 15th November plus we will hold our AGM.

Agenda for the night:

  • Welcome
  • AGM – we need a quorum so it is important that members attend
  • Our Club Competition

Judging for this competition will be done by the members of PHPC. We will only have a short turn around for judging and would like to finalise this competition on Monday 15th which means you will have from midnight Saturday when the comp closes to midday Monday. This will give our competition secretary time to prepare the entries for that nights presentation via zoom.

I encourage everyone who enters to take the time to judge.

The committee will be having a meeting to discuss the final night Print and Projected Image of the Year due the government moving the goal posts again. If you wish to have a say please email me.
