Hutt Camera Club runs a number of internal ladder competitions throughout the year with a set subject and open category,  and a once a year portfolio competition.

Internal Ladder Competitions:

Everyone is encouraged to enter both print and digital images into these competitions.  There are four though out the year with three grades (Beginner, Intermediate & Advanced).

Competitions are:

  • Fun and are a chance to show off your best images
  • An opportunity to gain constructive feedback on your images
  • An opportunity to learn from others images

The 2019 ladder set subjects are:

  • Black & White (deadline for entries 26/03/2019)
  • Nature (deadline for entries 28/05/2019)
  • Colour (deadline for entries 23/07/2019)
  • Movement (deadline for entries 24/09/2019)

Competition Rules can be downloaded here (updated Apr 2019)

Portfolio Competitions:

Our portfolio competitions consist of a set of six (6) prints which sit well together as a set.  There are two competitions, the Dorothy Comley Memorial Trophy for beginners and the Cliff Perry Memorial Trophy for everyone else.

Deadline for 2019 entries is:  22/10/2019

The portfolio competitions are often seen as the first step to creating a set of images for the LPSNZ distinction that can be applied for through PSNZ (Photographic Society of New Zealand Inc.)

Hutt Camera Club also enters in local (Wellington Region) inter-club battles,  as well as regional and national PSNZ inter-club competitions run, giving our members an opportunity to test the waters on a national level.
