Our next TPS Skills Night is on Tuesday, 26 February 2098 at 7:00pm. For this month the Image Challenge is “Tracks”. Please send up to five images for this Challenge, together with up to five images for the Field Day and five for the Favourites to be included in the Skills Night audio-visual to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by 6:00pm on Monday 25th February 2019.
To perpetuate the memory of our late member Alice Black, the club has introduced the ‘Alice Black Memorial Trophy’ to be contested each year on a perpetual basis.
At each month’s Aggregate Competition the judge will select an image from all those entered as the monthly Alice Black Image – they will use their own criteria to select the image regardless of the score given. All images submitted in the Aggregate Competition have the potential to become a possible winner of the Trophy as there is no restriction on the grade of the entrant or the medium in which the image is presented.
For February 2019 the Alice Black has been awarded to Allan Rosser for his print image “Harrow Homestead Front Room” taken at our September 2018 Field Day with Stanthorpe Camera Club. This image was entered in the A Grade Print Field Day section.
Our judge, John North commented “Outstanding print quality, everything is very sharp.”
Our next club meeting is at 7:00pm this coming Tuesday, 12th February 2019. There have been 133 images submitted by club members for our February 2019 Aggregate Competition which will be judged this evening by John North.
The Set Subject for this month is “Coastal”.
We look forward to catching up with you all this evening.
And don’t forget that entries for the March 2019 Competition are required by 12:00 midnight on the 12th February 2018 – the set subject for that month “Naked tree/s”.

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.
