Wagin Camera Club – Woolorama Interclub Photography competition 2019

The subject for this year’s Wagin Camera Club, Woolorama Interclub photography competition was “From Above”.   This subject was chosen to attract a wide variety of images due to the photographers personal interpretation of the topic.  

Ten clubs entered, with 15 images per club, giving a total of 150 images for judging. Entries were received from camera clubs in Northam, Esperance, Albany, Bunbury, Busselton, Geographe and metropolitan clubs Foothills, Northern Exposure and Belmont, plus local club Wagin.

Judging was done in Perth by members of the WA Photographic Judges Association.

The standard was exceptionally high and, as predicted, the subject matter in the images was widely varied. The only thing in common was that the images had been taken “From above”.

Winning club for 2019 was the Geographe Photographic Group. The perpetual trophy was presented to representatives from Geographe in the photography room on Woolorama Saturday. The winning club also receives $75.

Individual awards went to:

1st:   Jenni Banfield of Northam Photography Group ($100)

2nd: Ailine Hurst of Belmont Camera Club ($50)

3rd: Paul Sauter of Northern Exposure Photographers Group ($25)

The exhibition was well received by the viewing public at Woolorama and many favourable comments were received. It is hoped members of the Woolorama committee had an opportunity to view it.

Like other Woolorama events, there is a lot of behind-the-scenes work put into this interclub competition and this was done by willing Wagin Camera Club volunteers. It feels a little like Christmas to open the boxes of photographs as the club entries arrive.

The only down-side this year was running out of hanging space which meant 19 images (the lower scores) were left, unhung, in the suitcase. This was partly due to the increasing use of bigger prints in bigger mounts. However that size prints look terrific.

Wagin Camera Club will re-look at the rules-of-entry and make some adjustments where necessary.
