Welcome

Our club’s aim is to foster an interest in and the enjoyment of photography.  We do this through competitions, workshops, lectures, outings and meetings with other camera clubs.

Our members are all keen amateur photographers. Their photographic interests may vary – landscape, portraiture, sporting, abstract, etc.,  but they all share a passion for capturing great images, improving their skills and techniques and sharing their knowledge and experiences with other members.  Some examples of our members’ recent photos appear on this page.

Would you like to improve your photography?

Our Club meets monthly in a friendly, informal atmosphere.  If you’d like to join – or just see how we operate – come along to one of our meetings. We meet at 7.30pm on the 3rd and 5th Tuesday of each month at the Mount Colah Community Centre, Pierre Close, Mount Colah.

HHCC – Change to 2020 schedule

Hi Members,

Happy New Year and welcome to 2020! Hopefully you have had time to browse the club website to review the exciting event calendar we have planned for this year. You’ll find this to the left on the home page.

First up will be our welcome evening on Tuesday 28th January. Please note that we have made a slight change to this evening to allow our members a little more time to complete their portfolios. As such this has been swapped with the workshop planned for March, and this month we will focus on composition and editing with a few demos from Tom, Dave and Sonia.

We look forward to seeing you later this month.

Best,

Dave

HHCC – External Competition

MACPP OPENS – 13 DECEMBER 2019

The 2020 MACPP competition portal will open for entries at 10 AM AEDT on 13 December 2019

This is the second MACPP following its very successful introduction in 2019 – a very special photographic Prize, unlike any previously seen in Australia, the opportunity for Conceptual photographers to be recognised as the best in Australia – and to win significant prize money. 

Entries Open 13th December 2019 10AM AEDT TOMORROW

The name of the Prize has been changed to the Mullins Australian Conceptual Photography Prize, in permanent memory of Doug and Barbara Mullins. The availability of a bequest in their names will ensure the long-term future of the MACPP.

The MACPP is acquisitive; meaning the printed winning framed artwork that is awarded the MACPP Prize will immediately become the property of Magnet Galleries, which has partnered with the APS.

The winner of the 2020 MACPP will again be awarded $8,000 cash. The winner of the best entry by an APS Member will receive $2,000 cash. If the winner of the 2020 is an APS Member then that entrant will receive both cash amounts – totaling$10,000

An Emergent Designs voucher valued at $1,000 will be awarded to another finalist selected by the three judges (who will be announced very soon). The winners will be announced on Thursday 9 July 2020 at the 6.30 PM AEST opening of the exhibition of the finalists’ prints at Magnet Galleries’ Melbourne Docklands Gallery. |

Each entry must be a still work that has been substantially produced by photographic means, including analogue and digital photography, collage and mixed media. Each entry must be accompanied by an Artist’s Concept Statement of no more than 100 words. Each entry must not have been previously selected as a finalist in a Prize or exhibited at a major public institution. Entries must have been created in the twelve months preceding the closing date for entries (1 May 2020).

HHCC – External Competition

RIDGEWOOD CAMERA CLUB
2020 INTERNATIONAL PHOTO EXHIBITION 

Dear Fellow Photographers:

The Ridgewood Camera Club of Ridgewood, New Jersey, USA, is now accepting entries for our 37th Ridgewood International Exhibition and would like to invite you and the members of your Camera Club to participate. The Photographic Society of America, Projected Image and Nature Division (PSA 2020-059), recognize the Ridgewood International Exhibition.  The Exhibition is open to all – you do not need to be a PSA member to enter. A panel of three judges will score the images entered and participants may earn “Acceptances”.  

Acceptances are often seen as photography boasting rights. They can also count toward Star Ratings and other PSA distinctions. The Ridgewood International brings together individuals who have a mutual interest and love of photography. We may all speak different languages, but we do have one language in common, that is the “Language of Photography”. This year, we are again inviting photographers worldwide to take part and enter their best images to the Exhibition.  We cannot contact all of your members personally; therefore, we are asking you, through your organization, to forward our invitation and make your members aware of the Exhibition.

There are four sections:

  • Projected Image Digital – Color
  • Projected Image Digital – Monochrome
  • Nature Digital
  • Nature Digital – Wildlife 

All of the information about the Ridgewood International is posted on the Ridgewood Camera Club website www.ridgewoodcameraclub.net. There you will see International Exhibition on the left side drop down box, where you can see all of the information including the Entry rules, the Entry Form and the fees.Thank you for your attention and we look forward to having your members participate.

Sincerely yours,

B. Alex Bahtiarian
