Just a reminder that the set subject for April is Nature.
We use the APS definition for this subject and I remind members that we follow the rule of no changes to the images by way of cloning etc.
Closing date is Wednesday 13th March.
We have had excellent response to our new subject of ART in the February competition with a very interesting range of images, so keep up the good work for future competitions.
All the results are on the website for February, and you may make comment on other members’ images if you wish, as a means of encouragement and support.

Our March comps are now open for entries in the usual way. My apologies for the delay in getting the comps set up — inadvertently, they fell into “no mans’ land” between the existing MyPhotoClub website and the MPC Version 2 site. The March comps close on Wed. Feb. 13. Good luck! We expect the Version 2 site to be up and running in February and everything will be copied over from the old site to the new.
Incidentally, you can watch a preview of Version 2 via the link beneath our masthead image. But if you have a slow Internet connection, or don’t want to look at YouTube videos, you can get a good impression of how our new website will look by going to the SEQ 2019 site; our new site is modeled on the same template.
Thanks for your patience and best wishes for the New Year,

All February 2019 competitions are now open for entries. February competition entries close at midnight on Wednesday, January 16. Please note that only February comps are set up for entries at present. This is because a major upgrade of the MyPhotoClub website will be implemented in January.
The February Set Subject is “That’s Funny”. No definition of this subject is given; make what you will of it!
- All competition categories are now open to both Colour and Monochrome/Black and White images.
- The new category, replacing All Grades Monochrome Set Subject, is: All Grades Art Photography. To learn more about the subject of “Art Photography” please read the excellent article in our November Newsletter by Nikki Stewart.

Best wishes for an enjoyable, inspiring, and safe festive season,
