Welcome to The Entrance Camera Club Incorporated.

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

The club was formed on November 27th, 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 Inc. is affiliated with The Federation of Camera Clubs (N.S.W) Inc.

Our Monthly Club meeting is held at the CWA Hall, 1 Pacific Street, Long Jetty, on the second Friday evening of each month, (except January & December) at 7.00pm viewing for a 7.30pm 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.

Each Friday morning a group of club members have a photo walk locally usually followed by coffee. These outings are are good way to meet members and to discuss photo ideas, techniques and equipment.

// Action for CLUBS
~ ABOUT OUR CLUB ~

The Monthly Competitions form the basis of the club. The critiquing, subsequent discussions with the judges and other members are all great ways to learn new photographic techniques which you can then try yourself the next time the opportunity arises.

The Large Print competitions in both Monochrome & Colour are divided into three Grades, B Grade, A Grade and Advanced. This is aimed to assist our new photographers and challenge our most experienced members. B Grade is for our newer as well as less experienced members. A Grade is for our more experienced photographers, While Advanced caters for our most experienced members. In this way it is hoped all our members are competing on a more level basis, while still seeing the images and hearing the judges’ comments for all grades. Our Digital Image competition is a single Non-Graded competition open to all members.

Our “Print and Digital Image Of The Year” Awards Night is the Grand Finale of the Club’s year, held in place of the December meeting. The awards are presented to the winners of the monthly pointscore 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 special competitions are also held at the awards night, The Hilton Chalmers Memorial Trophy for the Nature Digital Image Set of the Year, The Nature Print Set of the Year and the Ace’m Creative Print Set of the Year.
