Marlborough Camera Club did very well at Seddon Shield with several members picking up trophies. Read the full Seddon Shield report.
Shot of the Year 2018
The annual awards night with guest speaker Bryce McQuillan talking about macro photography was a great night out.
The club is looking at reviving Photo News in a blog format on the club website. If you have an interesting story that might be of interest to other club members, or are prepared to provide a member profile about yourself and your photographic interests, let Robyn Carter or Chris Cookson know.
2018 Club Competition Calendar
The 2018 Competition Calendar is now available here
There's a new page under competitions tab with a list of external competitions, both PSNZ affiliated and others that may be of interest to members. These are often mentioned in email newsletters, but it's easy to forget what's in emails, so they're getting their own page on the website so that you can easily check what's coming up.
Competition Entries and Rules
The web based competition submission form is working well and can be found on the web site under competitions -> Image Submission.
The submission system makes sure that individual images are submitted correctly, but it does not check how many images you have submitted. Several members are failing to follow the published rules on the web site and submitting more images than are allowed in a category. Unfortunately these additional images cannot be awarded points, as this would be unfair to members who stick to the rules.
