    Something for anyone who has been a Camera Club Member

    Hi,

    I have recently entered (and won) our state Audio Visual competition in the 3.21 category (the A/V must be exactly 3 minutes 21 seconds long) and it might be good for a laugh if you've ever entered a photo in a camera club competition. Judges tend to look for the same basic things, and sometimes can be a tad random in their decisions. Judging was the focus of the A/V - hope you like it! I've put it up on You Tube.

    The funny thing was when I went to receive my trophy, and I met one of the 3 judges. It turns out she was a French speaker, and when the other two judges said that it was their choice, she was saying "No! No ... the translation is all wrong!" After it was pointed out that it wasn't meant for French speakers, she finally saw the tongue-in-cheek nature of it, and gave me first place.

    Fantastic.

    I joined a camera club this year and this is so true just from the little I have seen at this club.

    I thought this sucked and was pretty cliche and really kitsch - until about 1/3 through, then really liked it ... then I really like it.

    No wonder you won, well done, it delivered the impact.

    I have never been in a photo club but have attended a couple and they are not for me. Having said that, they do provide some great experiences and creative outlet. For me it's about time and I will get to them later when I do have that - time.

    Alas, that should have been your first consideration when choosing a home. Location, location, location .... the first 3 things to consider. Oh well, you can gaze wistfully across the city at what might have been .......
