The 2013 Eggbert Competition (a friendly rivalry between GRIPS and the Brantford Camera Club) is coming soon! We’re now accepting one or two photos per member for consideration by the Competition Committee to include as part of the GRIPS entry of 30 photos. To enter your photos, or to find more details about the event, go to the Eggbert page.
Here is the link to the Photolife contest for Canadian Photo Clubs. Entry is open to all GRIPS members – for the sake of consistency, in the box for “My Photo Club”, please enter our club name as follows: Grand River Imaging and Photographic Society (GRIPS). The contest closes June 30, 2013 – further details are available on the Photolife magazine website at http://photolife.com/bestofphotoclubs.php.
Good luck, and here’s hoping for a magazine full of GRIPS entries!
The submission form for Scavenger Hunt entries will be available until midnight on Friday, March 1. So far, we have only received a few entries. If you are having difficulty accessing the form, please send Gary an email at Program@gripskw.ca
We’re looking forward to seeing all your entries!
There are two competitions for which entries are due on January 28.
- If you are entering the GTCCC Inter-club competition, bring your digital and print entries to club meeting on January 28. Details and entry forms are now available Competitions > GTCCC > GTCCC Entries.
- Round 2 in-club competition: Digital photos are currently being accepted on-line using the Round 2 Entry Form. Print entries must be submitted at the club meeting.
Just a reminder that the Round 1 Competition results will be presented on Monday. Afterward, we will enjoy our annual Christmas Social and Potluck, where we will have a chance to share some snacks and social time.
We ask that those whose last names begin with the letters M-Z bring enough food or snacks to share with at least 4 people, and those whose last names begin with the letters A-L bring at least 4 cans of food that we will donate to Anselma House. We can feed ourselves and at the same time we can help those in our community who may be facing a difficult time this Christmas. Definitely a win/win situation. As usual, tea, coffee and juice will be provided at the meeting – please remember to bring along your own mug.
See you on Monday!
Thank you to the very enthusiastic group of GRIPS volunteers (Tim, Lynn, Len, Joel, Marty, Mischa, Tom, Bea, Mary-Lynn, Laura, Caroline, Arthika, Karen, Sandra, and Carol) who, in conjunction with the terrific people at Autism Services Waterloo Region, made this year’s Help Portrait another great success!
3 service dogs…
over 1000 pictures…
and one large group of Santa-hatted people!
Congratulations to GRIPS and thank you to the 18 members whose photos made up our club entry in the Grand Valley Image Battle which was held on Sunday, November 4 in Woodstock. The entries were fantastic and the Woodstock Camera Club hosted the meet in great style!
