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!

Three panel Judging

Having three judges to assess score entries is the standard arrangement for ‘formal competitions’ which may have national or international accreditation. MyPhotoClub offers a several options to facilitate this.

  1. Three judges in a room together view each entry (print or projected) and record the score for each entry using a USB Keypad connected to a computer. This is known as the DJS software/keypad method.
  2. Online scoring of digital entries each entry by a judge from their home. Can be done

The Critique Corner

 MyPhotoClub has a new feature called the Critique Corner.  I can tell you that through the testing of this feature and personally uploading a few images  I have gained substantial value from the feedback received.  There will be a natural shyness by members to put forward images so please upload an image yourself to get the ball rolling.

Video recording method for remotely judging prints

MyPhotoClub has a comprehensive remote judging system. This system is used primarily for digital entries but there is no reason why it cannot be used for prints. There are two possible ways to record the judge’s comments, either by writing the comments or by recording them on video.
