APS Australian Cup pre-selection

Each year the Australian Photographic Society (APS) conducts an annual interclub competition for camera clubs across Australia. A pre-selection competition will be held within our club to select the twenty entries to go forward.

Our advanced grade members will judge the pre-selection competition.  Last year we came tenth and in the previous year seventh. 

Each member can put forward two entries.  You can nominate any image that was not previously selected for this competition.

Entries close on Sunday, 3rd May.

PSA Interclub Competitions

Results are in for Round 2 of the Nature competition. We came 2nd and are now sitting in 3rd place overall out of 24 clubs.

Entries for Round 3 of the PSA Interclub competitions close on 1st April – normal entry procedure on our club website.

When you select the section to enter – Open (Colour or mono), Nature, Photojournalism or Photo Travel you will be able to see the entries of other club members. This might help you to decide which of your images to enter, particularly in Nature, PJ and Travel, so that you are not entering images that are very similar to others. (This is a new feature that was not previously enabled.)

If you view the entries for the Round 2 competitions, you will be able to see the score that each image obtained when our Advanced Grade members were selecting the club entries. (This is a new feature that was not previously enabled.)

Please contact me if you have any questions about the PSA Interclub competitions.
