The club conducts its own friendly photographic competition. But we prefer to call it an Evaluation Night! Held on the third Wednesday of the month, these present our members with challenges to get us thinking creatively, while developing our skills and techniques. Here are themes and definitions for 2019/20:

July 17th - Still Life
A work of art (photography) depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which may be either natural (food, flower, plants, rocks, shells, etc) or man-made ( drinking glasses, books, vases, jewellery, coins, pipes and so on)) in an artificial setting.

August 21st - Winter
An image which depicts winter, such as snow, fog, cold.

September 11th - Open
Any subject that is treated pictorially, embodying the elements of good design, arrangement or composition, which reflects the personal interpretation of the photographer.

October 16th - Body Art

March 18th - Portrait
A close up of a person or persons in which the face, facial features and facial expressions are predominant. This topic may include candid photographs and formal portraits.

April 15th - Australiana
The term denotes any items, people, places, flora, fauna and events of Australian origins. An image which depicts anything that is Australiana.

May 20th - Scapes (Landscape/Seascape/Urban/City or other)
An image featuring an expansive view without any subject dominating the scene.
Landscape - A landscape is an image of natural inland scenery. It may include houses, other evidence of man, people, animals and even parts of the sea provided that none of these dominate the image.
Seascape - A seascape is an image of natural coastal scenery, a wave study or the open sea. People, boats and items related to these may be present as incidental items in the image.
Urban/City/Other - The choice of subject matter can vary to offer a variety of "scapes", but it will be up to the maker to ensure that the end result is apparent to the viewer - i.e. the impact of the image will come from the subject matter chosen. A "cityscape" or "urban landscape" subject will be identifiable to the viewer.
