Annual General Meeting (AGM) 6:30pm start.
Set Subject: Pets
A pet is an animal kept primarily for a person’s company, entertainment, or as an act of compassion such as taking in and protecting a hungry stray cat, rather than as a working animal, livestock or laboratory animal. Two of the most popular pets are dogs and cats. However, there are a range of other animals which are also kept as pets – rodents, birds, reptiles, fish, frogs and arthropods (insects, spiders and hermit crabs for example). Ideally for this set subject there should be evidence of human companionship.

Set Subject: Lineal
A less-commonly used word for linear, but not to be confused with Linear Photography only, which is the use of parallel lines to derive perspective. Lineal also means; relating to, or consisting of lines.
Your imagery should be made up of many strong lines, be they parallel or obtuse to each other. The element of lines must be the stronger part of the subject’s make up and be immediately recognised for this aspect. You may also have linear perspective in your image, as long as they are the strongest part of it. Keystoning can play a part in developing these lineal aspects and may even enhance the effect of parallel lines, but not seen as equally parallel. Architectural elements are easily the most thought of, when deriving linear or lineal aspect photography.

Set Subject: Conceptual
Conceptual photography illustrates an idea. The subject of conceptual photography is often staged to represent an idea. The ‘concept’ is both ‘preconceived’ and, if successful, understandable in the completed image. It is most often seen in advertising where the picture may reiterate a headline or catchphrase that accompanies it.
Panel Judges: Sandra Neill, Andrew Raguse, Rowan Bestman
