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

Renewing Your Club Membership Using MyPhotoClub

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.

PHPC MyPhotoClub Instruction – Paying for Membership

Procedure for Our First Competition

This website is now available for Club Members to use. Instructions have been posted here and on our old website at phpc.org.au /More/MyPhotoClub. The instructions are also linked to the Club Documents page.
Members are encouraged to make your entries for the first competition on this site.
As we don’t want to split our scoring system this year, we are aiming to capture all images and scores for the first competition on this MyPhotoClub website.
To facilitate this, we will leave the competition open, and if you don’t manage to complete the entry form before the competition we ask that you complete it as soon as possible after the competition, and certainly within the following week.  This will allow us to record all the scores and have a complete record. The instructions for doing this are also enclosed.
P.S. If entries are not registered we won’t know they have been entered and we will be unable to score them!
P.P.S. Only Financial Members’ entries will be scored. Fees are due now. Thank you to those members that have paid their fees.
If you need assistance then please contact the Competition Secretary by email or phone.
So please go ahead and explore and use the new site. Constructive feedback is also very welcome.
