I am writing to you so that you may inform your members of a national photography competition they may be interested in.  The National Digital Portrait Exhibition 2019 is a photography competition circuit with five judging panels.   This means your entries go into five separate competitions for the one entry fee of $34.   This competition is now open for entries and closes on March 31st.


The exhibition is conducted in accordance with the recommendations and approval of the Australian Photographic Society (APS) – Approval number 2019/9, with 60 APS medals, ribbons and recognition towards honours available to entrants.     This competition is informally titled “Portraits for Parkinson’s”, as 25% of your entry fee will be donated to aid Parkinson’s Disease support groups in your state.

APS Honours – Time is now!

January is rolling up quick for those who would like to try for honours…

You will need to join the APS, $80 per annum and have either 12-14 images for Licentiate or 20-25 for Associate. The Panel entry fee is extra.

At this stage, I am hoping to get three judges (who have Associate honours) to view entries for members.

Each will pick out either 12 or 25 images, copy them into a folder from the originals submitted.

This will give the submitter an idea how’d they might go in achieving said honours. Ultimately it’s your decision.

Please start curating your entries.
