The Adelaide Camera Club's approach to the Coronavirus Pandemic
We are pleased to announce that we have returned to face to face meetings at the Latvian Hall. We have a COVID plan in place and require social distancing of 1.5 metres between members. At this stage all competitions will remain digital with no prints being judged.
HOWEVER, meetings will return to online Zoom meetings if any community transfer of COVID is reported in Adelaide.
If you have any questions about Club, competitions or membership, please contact the Club Secretary.
14th. OCTOBER 2020
Our regular meetings are held at The Latvian Hall Tālava, 4 Clark St, Wayville SA 5034 on the second, fourth and fifth (if there is one) Tuesday of each month, excluding December and January.
There is plenty of on street parking. We have both disabled carparks and disabled access to the room. The new location is close to both tram and bus stops on King William Road. The new location is air-conditioned and polished timber floor. As the room will not be available until 7:30pm we have decided to meet from 7:00pm onwards and set up the competition print display in the foyer and then commence our meeting in the small hall at 7:30pm.
We conduct meetings regularly with competitions, practical sessions, workshops and social weekends. The local community and visitors are welcome to our meetings . So why not drop in and have a chat. We encourage you to visit our meetings and get a feel for the Club and it's activities. This comes at no cost to you for your first 2-3 visits, after which you may decide to reap the benefits of becoming a financial member.
Each year the committee tries to make a programme that caters for all it's members. There are workshops and field trips to improve your photographic skills, talks from experienced photographers and competitions for those who are inclined. We encourage all members to enter our monthly competitions, as these are good forums to hear constructive appraisals of your work from independent judges. Please refer to the current programme for details and our page on how to prepare images and submit them for competition.
If you are interested in joining the club, then please come along to any of the meetings at the clubrooms and take a look. Introduce yourself to any of the committee members (they will be wearing committee badges) and they will be pleased to answer any questions that you have.
