Welcome to The Entrance Camera Club Inc.

We are a group of enthusiastic photographers situated on the Central Coast of NSW.

The club was formed in 1959. Members comprise people from all backgrounds, retired people, younger people, photographers who began with film and in the darkroom, some who have started photography in the digital age, expert award winning photographers and new photographers who have just purchased their first camera.

A passion for photography is the common interest. The Entrance Camera Club is affiliated with The Federation of Camera Clubs (NSW).

Our club meeting is held at the CWA Hall, 1 Pacific Street, Long Jetty, on the second Friday evening of each month, (except January) at 7.30pm viewing for an 8.00pm start. At the meeting, digital and printed images are critiqued, judged and awarded. The printed photographs are displayed around the room, so that after the formal part of the meeting, members may view and discuss the entries.

About our club

The Monthly Competition forms the basis of the club. Learning from the critiquing, subsequent discussions with the judges and other members is a great way to learn new photographic techniques which you can then try yourself next time the opportunity arises.

The competition is divided in to A Grade and B Grade to assist new photographers and challenge the experienced members. A Grade is for advanced photographers, while B Grade is for beginning or less experienced photographers. In this way members are competing on a more level basis, while still seeing the images and hearing the judges’ comments for both grades.

Print and Digital Image of the Year Awards Night is the grand finale of the Club, held in place of the December meeting. The awards are made for the winners of the monthly point score competitions and for image of the year in each section. A spectacular display of the winning works of the club members throughout the year is the centre piece of the night. Three additional competitions are held at the awards night, The Hilton Chalmers Trophy for Nature Digital Image Set of the Year, The Nature Print Set of the Year and the Creative Print Set of the Year.
