AGM Special Resolutions

You will be asked to vote on three special resolutions prior to the start of our AGM. To be eligible to vote, you must be; a current financial member, be present at the AGM or, have a proxy made available to another financial member.

These changes are needed so that we can streamline our management, dealings with others and simplify our competition results.

On the night of the AGM, you will be given a coloured voting paper with the choices outlined. You will be asked to fill these in and lodge them with the committee prior to the start of the AGM. The attached document outlines the committee’s plan.

This will be a major change to the way we conduct both our aggregate competition and competition year.

Please ensure you either; attend the AGM, give your proxy to another financial member or pass your special resolution voting paper for the vote on the night.

Thank you and stay tuned.

Member Success


I’d like to inform you that another of our extremely talented photographers has been awarded a Licentiate Honour with the Australian Photographic Society. 

Congratulations to Mick Jones LAPS!


I would like others to consider a portfolio entry next February. It is not a given, nor is it simple…or free to enter, but we will continue to support all who would like to try. 


We are making big noises in the photographic community, let’s keep it up!
