About Us

PHPC is a medium-sized club of around 50-60 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

Monday Night 7th May 2018 – Change of Presentation

Hi everyone

On Monday night 7th May Philip Weir was going to give a presentation, unfortunately for us his work commitments will not allow this. Instead Don Munro will give a presentation on Composition. Please bring your camera gear as there will be exercises after his presentation. This is also a good opportunity to ask any questions you have to other members.

Thanks

It’s Time To Enter Competition 1803 – Open and Set Subject “Abandoned”

It is just over one week until entries close for our next photo competition, 1803 which is open and a set subject: “Abandoned – Something created by man that has obviously been left behind”.

The competition will close to entries at 11:45pm on Sunday 15th April 2018. Late entries will not be accepted!

Important:  Print entries must attach the MyPhotoClub generated labels as they show the entry identifier which both indicates the entry was submitted on-time and which makes it much easier for us to find them on our scoring sheets.  Entries without system-generated labels may not be admitted for judging.

Competition 1802 Results Published

Our second competition cycle for 2018 is now complete. All scores have been entered, checked, and published on the MyPhotoClub Website.

The results are now available for you to see.  The instructions for viewing competition images and results can be viewed by clicking on the following link. They are also on the Club Documents Page and on the MyPhotoClub page on our old website. The pointscore tables’ presentations have been revised. You can now view by month and by year.

PHPC MyPhotoClub Instruction – Viewing Completed Competitions

Last months some members engaged in discussions about the images. We encourage members to make comments and discuss images in a respectful manner.

We continue to learn lessons on how best to use the MyPhotoClub system.  Here are some points for entrants that will ease your task and also make it easier for judging and scoring:

  1. Leave yourself plenty of time by entering well before the deadline. Things do go wrong from time to time (eg. Internet down, printer not working, forgotten passwords etc), but leaving it till the very last minute makes it difficult for us to help you and you may miss out on entering the competition.
  2. Entrants must print and attach the system-generated labels to their prints.  We have to take an audit of prints on competition night to see that all prints are present and those present have been correctly entered on the system.  The labels provide the information we need to identify the entries and the entrants.  We will toughen our response to non-compliance and so we need your cooperation to avoid any unfortunate incidents of disqualification.
  3. Do print your labels when you enter your images on the system.  You cannot print them after the competition closes.  It is best to print them on an A4 sheet with the print size set to 50%, cut them out, and glue or stick them to the back of the print with double-sided tape.
  4. Please make sure you enter the correct category. Most competitions from now are both open and set. You can check and alter your entries anytime before deadline. It is wise to go back and verify your entry as being what you intended.

Congratulations everyone on a successful competition.

It’s Time To Enter Competition 1802 – Water Moving or Still

It is just under one week until entries close for our next photo competition.  Competition 1802 is set subject only: “Water, moving or still, is the main subject, not the attractive woman under the waterfall or the surfer on a wave”.

The competition will close to entries at 11:45pm on Sunday 18th March 2018. Late entries will not be accepted!

Please note that there is an error in the form allowing the selection of open entries.  Please only enter and select the set entries.

Important:  Print entries must attach the MyPhotoClub generated labels as they show the entry identifier which both indicates the entry was submitted on-time and which makes it much easier for us to find them on our scoring sheets.  Entries without system-generated labels may not be admitted for judging.
