Dear members,

It is time to dust off those cameras and join us for this year’s PHOTO RALLY.For our new members, Photo Rally is a fun, relaxed competition we run annually. It’s an opportunity to get out and about with your fellow photogs to shoot a series of set subjects in a designated location. 

Date -Saturday 24th Oct – Sunday 8th Nov, with a meetup organised for Sat 24th at “The Vintage Pantry Cafe”  (Outdoor area) in Galston.

Those wishing to meetup, will need to RSVP Elaine ASAP so we can book a table as tables are booking fast. (Due to COVID restrictions, for the number of members attending, tables must be booked) so please don’t delay or you risk missing out.

Location and set subjects – To consider our more vulnerable members during these times we are keeping it local this year by including the whole of Hornsby Shire.The set subjects are also taking into account those who don’t feel comfortable venturing far. Flora and Fauna for eg can be in one’s own backyard.Choose a colour or open could be the opportunity to try some still life perhaps. Most importantly, we want to allow everyone to participate where possible. 

Judging -You will be the judge – All members will be encouraged to judge the entries online, even if you don’t participate. Members will have from Monday 9th November – Saturday 14th November 9pm (6 days only) to vote. Voting will close at the same time as entries for the November comp closes. Making it easy to do both voting and entering of your POTY images at the same time perhaps, however; we strongly encourage you not to leave it to the last minute or you risk running out of time.  

Entries will then be displayed and winners announced at our “November Photo of the Year evening November 17th. 

We hope you will join us on Saturday 24th but if not you will have until Sunday 8th November to shoot the rally. Importantly – All images must be taken during this period to qualify.  

We look forward to seeing what you capture.
Regards, Sonia and Elaine
