Providing a sample file for your competition.

A new feature has been added to allow competitions to have a reference or sample file available for download. There are several ways this can be used, but it was developed with the concept of a RAW challenge in mind. After a workshop on processing, upload a sample raw file for all members to download and work on, then submit their JPG versions. Colour to black & white is an obvious application.

How to set this up

Image Comments

A comment can now be added to any image uploaded into MyPhotoClub. This feature has been added to all entry forms. After an entry has been made the entrant can use the blue View / Remove Entries button to access a popup that enables adding/editing of comments and titles. Titles can now be edited as well.

How are these comments used?

These comments are not visible to a judge of your competition. The only exception is the APS Conceptual Photography prize, where the comment is part of the entry.

For clubs, when a competition is published and viewable to members the authors comment will appear at the top of the comments. Below you can see the comment added to an entry of mine and how it sits with the judges comments and another members comment.

Feature update / highlight banner

It is now possible to edit the title of your entry after it has been submitted.

The ongoing challenge is to keep all users of MyPhotoClub informed of features, improvements or upcoming events without bombarding them with emails, popups or flashing signs!

A moderately subtle way has been implemented to do this which I hope is a balanced method.

Everyone at MyPhotoclub – an entry space for everyone

I have been thinking about doing something like this for a while and this is, unfortunately, the perfect time to release this service.

Everyone at MyPhotoClub accepts entries from any person who is a member of a MyPhotoClub camera club. The competitions are themed with two entry slots and run weekly. The judging will be done using online scoring where a score between one and five is given for each entry. Everyone is enabled to participate in the online scoring.

Subscription fees for 2020

Please ensure your club executive receives this message.
(suggest they go to https://support.myphotoclub.com.au/ and subscribe)

MyPhotoClub charges clubs $10 per year per member. This is done by charging $5 per member in April and October. Clubs should ensure their membership lists are current so that they are not charged for departed members.

I am aware that with the social restrictions in place, club revenue may be impacted. Each club’s situation is different, so I have decided to take the following action:

  • The April invoice to clubs will be sent as usual – please pay on receipt.
  • The October invoice will be sent but the payment of this invoice will not be pursued – it will be up to each to determine if they can afford to pay.

Any photography clubs wishing to sign up to use MyPhotoClub this year will not receive an invoice until April 2021. Please let any photography clubs you know of this offer. My am is to assist as many clubs as I can to maintain connectivity with their members during this difficult time.

Kind regards from Colin – stay safe and stay home!
