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.

Rules regarding re-submission of images in monthly competitions

Dear Members

With the entries for the July Print and Digital competitions due in by 11.59pm tonight (21st June), I would like to remind members of the Competition Rules. These can be found on the Club website; from the Home page, click on the “Members Resources” tab on the right, and from the list of documents available click on “The Competition Rules Updated”. These can be downloaded by clicking on the Download button.

I would like to draw your attention to and clarify the rules regarding re-entry of images into the competitions. The rules state:

Re-entry of photographs: If a photograph does not receive an award (1st, 2nd, 3rd or Highly Commended) in any monthly competition that photograph may be re-entered again in future monthly competitions as many times as the entrant wishes. Once a photograph does receive an award it cannot be re-entered again into the same section of any future monthly competitions. The same photograph may be entered into all competitions, Digital, Colour Print and Monochrome Print, however it is suggested that this not be done all in the same month.

So once an image has received an award in any section it can never again be entered in that section. Please be aware of this and when entering “oldies but goodies”, please check that they haven’t previously received an award in that section even if it was a few years ago.

Thank you and good luck in the July competition.

Barbara Blades, President
