Importance Notices.

  • There are parking restrictions from 9am to 5pm each week day.
  • Weekends and night time are free.
  • While there is unmetered car parking available in front of HOTA we can only park there for 4 hours before having to move the car or receive a fine.
  • We strongly suggest parking to the north of HOTA in the metered carpark where the parking is ($1.90 per hour) OR $5.20 for the day (Max fee for Tuesday-Friday$20.80).
  • Whether you are in the Centre or going on an excursion it is best to park in the metered areas and pay for the day.

  • There is an alternative free parking area opposite the Racecourse. It is 1km easy walk to HOTA.

  • Note: Do NOT park in the racecourse grounds or along Bundall Road.

A STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTION for UNDERSTANGING THE PARKING NOTICES AT HOTA.

Don’t forget your licence plate (registration number). You’ll need to input your vehicle’s Licence plate number to pay for your parking at the Gold Coast Cultural Precinct.

This way, if you park all day you can leave the carpark and return to a different bay without having to pay again.

parking 1Use your credit card. It is the easiest way. If you use cash there will be NO CHANGE given if you don’t have the correct amount. It’s easier to take a photo rather than try for an eReceipt. If you want a parking receipt there is an instruction note on the post.

APSCON 2018 Triptych Print Exhibition Information

A Triptych Print Exhibition is being held at APSCON 2018. A triptych is a set of three associated works, intended to be appreciated together and displayed on one common background, as one single image. Together the images MUST tell a story.

APS members are invited to submit two works. Each triptych will have three images, in landscape format, with the background measurements being 483mm x 329mm. These images will not be matted and will be attached to the fabric backed display boards with Velcro dots or pins, so please leave a border on your work. Once you are satisfied with your work, please flatten your one submission, and send the file like that. If you are submitting 2 works then both will be flattened before sending.

Triptych Instructions:

1. Subject: Open - must tell a story.
2. Definition: 3 images on one background that tell a story.
3. The triptychs will be professionally printed by “Living Image” in Brisbane.  www.livingimageprint.wordpress.com
4. Limit of 2 triptychs per person
5. Total Cost: $27.50 per print. $20 per print, $7.50 test prints and express postage.
6. Living Image will store all the prints until they are picked up by the committee prior to APSCON.
7. Paper stock used: Subtle Satin (white)
8. Size A3+ (483mm x 329mm) Landscape format
9. Leave a 25mm white border inside that area although they can print to the edges. HOWEVER, the prints will be pinned to a board so you need a white area (the prints will not be matted.)
10. The size of your final image must fit within the A3+.

Process:

1. Send an email of your intent to submit to: printing@darrenjew.com
2. You will receive an invoice and further information.
3. Pay for the printing via the invoice details.
4. A small test photo of your triptych will be posted to you.
5. You will need to confirm if the print is acceptable or not.
6. The triptych will then be printed, and stored at Living Image until print exhibition organisers pick them all up together.
7. The Best option 16bit AdobeRGB TIFF file 300dpi at the print size, no layers, no extra channels, no compression (these are very big files and it’s suggested to use Dropbox or a similar service to send these). Almost as good, but much easier to send sRGB JPEG file 300dpi at the print size.
8. The latest you can send your triptychs is the 24th August.

Example of your artboard size.

Below, are some examples of how your images could be arranged to tell the story that you are conveying. The blue background represents the complete file and the white areas represent the images. The background can be any colour that you think suits your images.

APSCON has historically been a very social event where APS members got to meet each other and create everlasting friendships.  For many of the delegates, it has been a yearly expedition to enjoy their love for  photography and reunite with friends as they include APSCON into their yearly social itinerary.

Initially the Annual Awards dinner was the only organised social event, but with the ever growing need for members to enjoy a meal together, to share stories and good times, the introduction of the Social Dinner was an approriate addition. This event proved to be one of the most loved social events at ASPCON.

Last year, we tried something new, we have included a State Social Dinner with the view to include the presence of the State Photographic Federations into the APS world. It was a big sucess so we will do it again this year.
