New IN-HOUSE competition for April 2020!

Let’s have a bit of fun, seeing we have ( a lot of ) time on our hands.

I have created a new Digital Competition for April 2020. It is called IN-HOUSE because the judging will be done by the MEMBERS of HPG. The results will not be added to your aggregate score.


The brief is : “Handling boredom in isolation“. (Harry’s choice) A quirky imagination, some inspiration and a healthy dose of originality will be rewarded . A 3-image limit per member.
The competition closes on Sunday, 3rd May @ 6pm. Results will be made known the following Tuesday during our Zoom – Meeting @ 7pm

Happy snapping!

Introducing Everyone at MyPhotoClub

An entry site has been established for all members of all MyPhotoClub clubs to collectively enter a series of friendly competitions to engage with during these challenging times.

The first round is called A Thing at Home – find an inanimate item in your home and see what you can come up with. Two entries per person. Entries close April 19th.

The competitions are themed with two entry slots and run weekly. The judging will be done using online scoring where a score between one and five is given for each entry. Everyone is invited to participate in online scoring.

There is no entry fee or charge for using this.

Each entrant’s privacy is maintained as the club level features of viewing profiles and other images of the entrant are disabled.

You can access the competition at https://everyone.myphotoclub.com.au/. Use the subscribe button to get updates about each competition

Access is also through a link is provided on your Members page and is also accessible from the All Sites icon (top right of page).

HPG Meetings during the COVID-19 Crisis.

There will no meetings at the Emerald Downs Community Centre Meeting Room until further notice. This is to comply with the Government’s advice to help prevent the spread of the virus. I will send regular updates of this decision to members as the situation changes.

The committee is looking at various other options to replace the meetings. This might involve more outdoor photography and field trips where members are less closely confined and I hope that the weather become more conducive to outdoor activities. In the meantime keep safe and healthy.
