DEFINITION: Capture an image of anyone, anything or anywhere that looks wild in any way.
Note: The word “wild” must be incorporated in the title of each image.
12 prints per club, with a maximum of 2 per member. No individual entries.
No time/date restriction on images.
Mounting: For the protection of prints and ease of handling, all images must have a mat board window mount. Flush mounted prints will not be accepted. Mounts must be black or white (no coloured mounts). Maximum size, including mount is 50cm x40cm. Minimum image size: 20cm x 20cm square; 14cm x 25cm rectangular/panorama. Prints behind mat board window mounts must have a protective backing board but total thickness must NOT exceed 5mm. The mat and backing must be free of hooks, Velcro, glue or sticky residue. Consider re-using your smaller mounts for A4 size images as the large 50x40 mounts reduce the number of prints which can be hung in the exhibition space. As many entries as possible will be hung.
Titles: Must contain the word “wild”. Titles must not be visible from the front of the print. These details shall be shown on the back in the top left-hand corner and include the author’s name, title of print and club. Images cannot be watermarked or logo embedded.
Prints entered in a previous Wagin Woolorama or Woolorama Interclub are ineligible. The committee reserves the right to refuse an entry if deemed unsuitable for exhibition.
Packing: All entries should be packed securely, even if hand delivered, as packing will be used for the return of the entries. Australia Post Tough Bags work well and reduce mailing costs.
Loss or Damage: All care will be taken in handling entries but the club does not accept responsibility for any loss or damage thereto.
Entry Fee: $25.00 per club. Bank details: Bankwest Wagin BSB 306-033 A/c 0118325. Please also include return postage (stamps accepted however must not be international stamps, as these do not include GST). Pre-paid Australia Post “stickers “are NOT acceptable as these do not show the true mailing office for return postage nor the correct date so therefore (we are told) are illegal and will not be accepted by Wagin Post Office for return mail.
Wagin Camera Club may seek to hold your prints for review at its meeting on March 19.
Should you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact Wagin Camera Club:

Wagin Camera Club INTERCLUB COMPETITION 2022
WAGIN WOOLORAMA 2022 CANCELLED
Wagin Woolorama 2022 has unfortunately been CANCELLED due to Level 2 Covid restrictions being implemented as of 3rd March. This is disappointing for everyone as enormous amounts of work have been done towards this event, only to have it cancelled at such late notice. Here in Wagin, the annual calendar is geared around the event. The year is measured as being either “before Woolorama” or “after Woolorama”. Many organisations rely on Woolorama for an opportunity to raise funds by supplying labour e.g., sports clubs’ man the gates, Lions club mans the bar, Rotary marks out the grounds etc. It is also where deals are done, farmers compete, families unite and friends meet up. 2022 was also to be special as it marked the 50th anniversary of Wagin Woolorama in its present format, having evolved from an annual agricultural show. All is now on-hold.
However: The 50th anniversary of Woolorama will now be celebrated in March 2023.
Eleven clubs entered with a total of 132 beautiful prints. Thank you all for these and your individual effort is recognised and appreciated. The competition has been judged on February 18 and the results are attached. However, the club has lost its venue for the exhibition of these prints.
Therefore: With the support/co-operation of participating club’s itis desired to retain the TOP 20 images for exhibition next year alongside the2023 Interclub competition. Those are images with scores 17 and above. All other prints will be returned to the clubs. Arrangements will be made with clubs which planned to pick their images up from Woolorama.
Wagin Camera Club will pay the prize money while it waits to see if Wagin Agricultural Society sponsorship is possible for this year. Some/most club entries will be held for viewing at our next Camera Club night on Monday, March 21, before being mailed back.
