The Adelaide Camera Club's approach to the Coronavirus Pandemic
The Adelaide Camera Club's believes the safety and well being of our members is paramount.
We are in the midst of a world wide pandemic, with a ‘public health emergency’ declared by the Prime Minister and the SA Premier, Steven Marshall recently. Steps are being put into place to minimise the spread of infection and try and take control of this disease.
The Adelaide Camera Club is taking the proactive step of cancelling all indoor gatherings of the Club members until further notice, to help reduce the spread of infection and to keep the vulnerable members of our community safe.
Our competitions will still go ahead at the usual time but they will be held online using Zoom Video Conferencing.
To join in, we will contact our members by email prior to the meeting/competition with a link and an invitation. By clicking on the link we send you, the Zoom software will load onto your computer and you will automatically join the meeting. It is as simple as that!
If you would like to join the Club or observe an online competition/meeting, please contact the Club Secretary by email and we will be in contact with you.
If you have any questions about Club competitions or membership, please contact the Club Secretary.

The club has moved to a new location. From January 2020 we will be meeting at The Latvian Hall Tālava, 4 Clark St, Wayville SA 5034
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 meet on the second, fourth and fifth Tuesday of each month (excluding Jan & Dec) and typically start 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 and maybe 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.
