Enter the 1st Print Competition of 2019 on 7th May.

Have you decided on images you’d like to submit as a Print in the Competition ? Have you had them printed ?Do you know 2 x Prints per category are allowed – Open Colour, Nature and Mono ? Do you have Mounts you can use ? Have you loaded the electronic copy of your prints in the appropriate competition-category on the Website? Have you printed your ID labels as well as the title-labels and affixed them to the Mount ? If you have done all that, then you are set like a jelly. Just bring them along to the Meeting on the 7th at no later than 06:45pm. Just remember , you HAVE to load your electronic images on the website (in the PRINT Category)by SUNDAY, 5th May at 6pm (I’m closing the Competition then) or you will not be allowed to participate in the Print Competition.

If you have not , but wish to participate – there’s still time this coming week to have your images printed and mounted. If you don’t know where to start, phone me (0431695412) so I can help you, talk you through it, give advice or praise you to success , I’m willing to do any of the above.

P.S. It’s Iron-Man on the 5th May…lets get some nice panning shots of the Cyclists. Go and stand on any corner along the route and grab some shots.

Happy snapping!

Lindie
