APS Photo Walk Day

Environmental Impact
Photo Day     This will be a day where you can indulge your imaginative self and show us what the words Environmental Impact mean to you whether you will be walking city streets or wandering bush trails. Images can only be captured on the day and meta data must be included when the images are uploaded for judgement.   September 2021 25
  Imagine…….Club members and individuals from all around Australia will be doing the same thing as you on Sept 25 2021 BUT in different places. What an amazing opportunity to connect through photography.
    Not a Club Member. Not a problem. 
You can participate as an individual.   An introduction Zoom Session will be held on the previous night (24 Sept) with a special speaker.  Additionally there will be a Zoom awards event, date to be advised, after the images have been accessed which will include overall feedback on the images from photographic experts.

What will this cost the club? Just $20 per club or $5 if you are participating as an individual.
    MORE DETAILS COMING EARLY IN 2021
