Week 13: Photobook Comp, New T-Shirts, PhotoDash, & LensLife

* Just a reminder: No tute or outing this week due to exams just around the corner! Study up (but don’t do your head in). Stay calm and keep shooting because we have some sick competitions and our famous PhotoDash lined up for you next sem!


2012 Photobook Competition

Submissions: Close – Midnight, Sunday, 22 July 2012.

Submissions are still open! Get shooting this mid year break!

You may have heard about the Photobook already – it is our annual PhotoClub publication by members and for members! Each year entries are sent in and winners are printed in a book which we get published professionally. Winners receive prizes as well as their photograph published! – How cool is that! We’ve had pretty successful competitions so far for the past two years, and great Photobooks for 2010 and 2011, so we hope that you members will be able to make the 2012 competition greater than ever!

The PhotoDash is a photo marathon that will see you exploring Sydney’s CBD. 2011 was PhotoDash’s debut and it was a huge success winning us Arc Club Event of the Year! Originally inspired by the t.v. series The Amazing race, teams are formed, clues are given, challenges are undergone, and teams race to various checkpoints in a bid to capture the day’s best photos.
