Brisbane Camera Group submits a “Club” entry into several external competitions each year. Prior to these competitions, BCG will call for entries from members and the club entry will be chosen from these.
River City Print Competition
Inaugurated in 2000 by Wynnum Bayside Camera Club, this Competition is held in September and was originally between Brisbane Camera Group, Mt Gravatt Photographic Society, Queensland Camera Group and Wynnum Bayside Camera Club. From 2006 the competition has been opened to all South-East Queensland camera clubs.
It is a print only, open subject, graded competition with A and combined AB and B grade sections for Colour and Monochrome Prints. Photographs must be taken after October of the preceding year. Five prints are permitted in each section.
Queensland Inter-club Digital Projected Images
The original name was the “Metropolitan Inter-club Slide Competition”, with metropolitan camera clubs as well as Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Toowoomba clubs participating. The annual hosting of this competition rotates around clubs in the region.
The Inter-club Projected Images Competition is now a digital only competition with seven (7) subject categories. Three (3) compulsory subjects are included every year: Landscape/Seascape, Nature and People. An additional three (3) subjects are chosen by the host club. These six (6) subject categories are open to all grades. The seventh category is an Open subject and is for non-A grade entries only. This is intended to stimulate and encourage competition between lower grade club members.
While this competition is among Clubs with placings awarded to Clubs, First, Second and Third place certificates also are awarded to individual photographers in each category.
Number of Entries: Three (3) entries in each of the seven (7) subject categories, a total of 21 entries per club. There is a limit of a maximum of two entries chosen for any individual photographer with these being in different subject categories.
