A big thank you to all Club Members who contributed to making our first photo competition using MyPhotoClub a success. We had what appears to be a near-record number of entries on display, and all photos shown were of a very high standard. So well done!
There are a couple of things that Members need to ensure they have done in order to successfully finalise this competition and to have their competition points awarded:
- If you have not submitted images, titles and categories for your entries on the site using the competition entry form, then we cannot include, nor score, your entry. Please complete this step as soon as possible. Competition 1801 remains open for retrospective entries until 11:45pm next Saturday 24th February. That is plenty of time and there will be no extensions.
- Only financial members will accrue points on the system. A red “Renew Membership” button will appear on your home page if the website does not know about your membership renewal. If you have paid by cash or bank transfer then please register your payment on the system by clicking on the red Renew Membership button and fill in the form and submit it. You will then, after a day or so, receive confirmation of renewal and the red button will disappear. If you do not renew and you do not register renewal online, then you will not receive competition points!
Instructions on how to do the above have been posted on the site and on our old website.
Thank you to members that have already done all these things. You will receive full credit for your entries.
Finally, the next competition will be run using the new process. Entries are to be made before before deadline. No entries will be accepted after the deadline! We will send you a reminder 2 weeks ahead of deadline so you don’t forget. All competitions for the year are available for entry already, so you have plenty of time to start building your portfolio of entries on the system, and to change your mind as you wish.
Thanks for your forbearance and cooperation as we make this important change to the administration of our Club and its competitions. With your help it will be a complete success.
As always, if you need assistance then please do not hesitate to ask any of the Committee.

At this time of year Club members are being asked to renew their memberships of the Club. Previously the Treasurer has sent an email to all members requesting payment by bank transfer (preferably) or by cash at a Club meeting.
The MyPhotoClub website now includes a facility for members to register their renewal (or initial) payments. A facility to use PayPal for this purpose is also provided. Be aware though that PayPal deducts a small commission on the way through, so the Club will not receive the total amount paid. It is however a quicker and more automated method.
The instructions for using this new facility are enclosed below. As always, the Committee stands ready to assist if a Member requires assistance.

Would you like to have your photo featured as the banner on the Club’s website? We are looking for excellent photos that typify the Pennant Hills district to cycle as our banner photo. The photo will be overlaid with our logo and the Club’s name, so be sure to leave some space for those. Please send your photo which needs to have dimensions of 1600 × 460 pixels to email@example.com. The file format can be JPEG, TIFF or RAW as long as the EXIF data is present so we can process it. Looking forward to your contributions!
