The first stage of judging of the 2021 Image of the Year competition is now complete. If you would like to see the top 10 images from each competition please join our ZOOM Presentation this coming Wednesday night, Wednesday 17th November at 7.00pm.
There are many wonderful images in the top 10 placings in the Open Colour, Monochrome and Nature competitions from Advanced, A and B Grade.

Even if you didn’t enter I am sure you will enjoy seeing some of the best work produced by our members in 2021.

Lifewire has very interesting background information on Instagram, how it works, how to use it, tips and tricks and how to set up an account. This site was recommended by our Skiffy Editor, Julie Brooks . It is a very comprehensive site.

I would like to thank club members for their support and patience over the last two years as we have dealt with the Covid 19 pandemic. It was hoped that club activities would largely return to normal in 2022 as the bulk of the population becomes vaccinated and the health guidelines allowed normal club activities to resume. Unfortunately we have been advised by Belmont 16s Club management that due to the club undergoing extensive renovations we will not be able to hold any activities in the club next year. As a result we propose to move club meetings to the Valentine Bowling Club in 2022. We think this venue is an excellent alternative as it is very close geographically to the Belmont 16s Club and the upstairs room is spacious and accessible by stairs and a lift. To make this work some other changes will be necessary.
We may have to adjust starting and finishing times for the Competition Night as currently Valentine Bowling Club is closing at 9.00pm. We will work through some of these logistics and advise members closer to the time.
Print competitions will recommence in January 2022 but competition nights will move from the third Wednesday of each month to the second Wednesday of each month. This change is required to accommodate an existing booking arrangement at the Valentine Bowling Club. As a result all entries for digital and print competitions will have to be entered a week earlier i.e. by 11.00pm on the first Sunday of the month. We propose at this stage that tutorial nights will continue to be on line via ZOOM meetings as has been the case for the last two years.
Membership of our photography club will still require membership of the Belmont 16s Sailing Club. The parent club has offered considerable financial support to our club over a number of years and this support is continuing. Becoming a financial member of the Valentine Bowling Club is not a necessity but your committee encourages you to join to provide support to this club who will not charge our club for the use of their meeting room. A social membership will cost $10.00 but membership runs from April to April so we are looking at $20.00 for 2022.
If you have any questions about these changed arrangements please get in touch with either myself or another committee member.
Finally on behalf of your committee I would like to wish you and your family all the very best for the festive season and to encourage you to get involved in club activities next year.
