2021 Qld Interclub Competition – Hosted by Toowoomba Photographic Society (Inc) – Entry to Event $10 pp

By | | No Comments

The event is being held on Saturday 11 September 2021, during the week before the Carnival of Flowers, so another reason to visit Toowoomba at this time. Perhaps some members might like to plan to go up a day or two earlier, or extend their visit, to take in some of the street & park scape photographic opportunities which will be on offer.

As usual, entries to the 2021 monthly competitions prior to the event will be considered as part of the selection process. ACC will also be seeking entries from members for consideration for this annual event, so if you wish to submit images for consideration, there will be more information provided later in regards to due dates etc. In the meantime, take a look at the set topics below and start getting images ready which you might like to submit.

The following is some general information about the event for members sent by PSQ (Photographic Society Qld):

This competition is open to digital and print images (Covid permitting).

Below are the definitions for the 2021 Qld Interclub competition to be held in Toowoomba. (These were decided by ACC when we successfully hosted the event online during COVID in 2020).
A Photograph of a person or people that must show all of the person(s) from head to foot. (no head to waist close-ups)
The person(s) in the photograph must be the focal subject, however the image could also depict their environment or a broader scene. Can be posed or candid.
Must be a live human being (mannikins, statues or ornaments will not be accepted)
Nature photography depicts living untamed animals and uncultivated plants in a natural habitat, geology and a wide diversity of natural phenomena, from insects to icebergs. Photographs of animals that are domesticated, caged or under any form of restraint, as well as photographs of cultivated plants are ineligible. Minimal evidence of humans is acceptable for nature subjects such as barn owls or storks adapting to an environment modified by humans, or natural forces such as hurricanes or tidal waves reclaiming it. The original image must have been taken by the photographer, whatever photographic medium is used. Any manipulation or modification to the original image is limited to minor retouching of blemishes and must not alter the content of the original scene.
An image featuring an expansive view without any subject dominating the scene.
Any image taken by a photographer in AB and B grades. Clubs where club members are un-graded may submit 3 images by novice members.
A monochrome grey scale image containing only Black and White. It must not be colour toned.
An abstract image is an attempt to express an emotion, sensation or impression and does not attempt an accurate depiction of visual reality. It may involve the use of colour, light, shadow, texture or shape to achieve this.
An abstract image may isolate a fragment of a natural scene in order to remove its inherent context from the viewer.
It may be purposely staged to create a seemingly unreal appearance from real objects.
Still life photography is a genre of photography used for the depiction of inanimate subject matter, typically a small group of objects. Similar to still life painting, it is the application of photography to the still life artistic style. These can also include flowers and food.
* Please direct any initial enquiries re the event to the ACC Committee.

As many clubs are putting their plans together for 2022, I wanted to put a date claimer in your calendar for the River City Print Competition. This competition, which has had its history mainly in SE Queensland, has not been held for a couple of years primarily due to COVID19 restrictions in handling prints and general uncertainty in planning an event of this nature.

Queensland Camera Group has agreed to reinvigorate and host this competition in 2022. We are a club that strongly promotes the print as the final important part of the photographic process and wish to see the art of printing celebrated through this competition. We feel the River City Print Competition should sit proudly beside the Queensland Interclub Competition, which has traditionally been a DPI competition open to all Queensland clubs affiliated with PSQ. Therefore in 2022, the River City Print Competition will be open to all clubs in Queensland who wish to participate, and the competition will take the following form:

1.       Categories:          Open Colour, Open Monochrome, Nature, Portrait, Non A Grade Open (four prints per club per category)

2.       Judging event:   Saturday July 30, 1pm to 5pm at Kenmore Hills.

If you wish to attend the Judging you will need to register here https://rcp2022.floktu.com and pay the $10 registration which covers entry and afternoon tea. Get in quick, limited to 50 tickets. Bookings close Wednesday 27th July.
