The great Australian Photographic Challenge is on. We are looking for the best images from Australian Photographic Club members, both as a club, and as individual photographers. This is an opportunity for clubs to showcase their best work and to promote themselves. There will be recognition at the highest level with the awards being presented at the APSCON Awards dinner on 16th September 2018. There will be 10 awards for clubs and 29 awards for individual photographers presented, and the judging will be done by professionals. So, all you need to do is choose twenty of the best images made by club members and enter by 3rd June. We will do the rest.
