Set Subjects

Monthly competitions at the Bay and Basin Camera Club consist of two sections, an Open section where any photograph may be entered, and a Set Subject competition, where entered photographs must relate closely to, and clearly reflect, the Set Subject which is chosen by the committee and advertised up to a year in advance.

The object of the Set Subject competition is to encourage members to try subjects that they might normally avoid, hopefully stretching their creativity, increasing their photographic knowledge and improving their photography.

Members are encouraged to take photos specifically for the Set Subject, rather than rummaging through shoe boxes or hard drives searching for a photo that fits the subject.

Please email Lois or Brett with your set subject suggestions. A list of possible set subjects can be found here - Set Subjects Suggestions

Australiana

Australiana is a term for those things that are quintessentially Australian; things that are symbolic and uniquely ours. Your subjects might be flora or fauna that are unique to Australia, or perhaps something cultural such as representations of our indigenous culture. You could focus on an Australian emblem of industry, sport, cuisine or folklore. Or a renowned geographical feature or piece of architecture. The photography must boldly say "Australia" to you and the world.
