Welcome to Peninsula Camera Club

Our Mission – Peninsula Camera Club began in 1956 to encourage, foster, promote, and advance photography in all its facets through joint effort and participation of all members. The club has a high commitment to both social activities, teaching, learning and competitive aspects of photography. Club members are encouraged to participate in all forms of photography, including and not limited to prints, digital imaging, audio visual, club competitions, national and international exhibitions, social activities, events & interactive outings.

Our Vision – Peninsula Camera Club’s vision is to encourage growth of artistic vision and technical knowledge by;

  • Creating a welcoming and friendly environment where all members and visitors are welcome and appreciated.
  • Creating a platform for all members from beginners to experts to share their work in a formal environment through monthly competitions as well as in an informal and social environment where the emphasis is on sharing and discussion, rather than competition.
  • Creating a system where members with diverse experience and skills can interact, learn, and share. Not only from each other, but also through formal channels such as the Photographic Society of Queensland (PSQ), Australian Photographic Society (APS) and leading photographers in the photographic industry.
  • Providing opportunities through workshops, outings, and teaching to gain experience and build a portfolio with a wide variety of subject matter.
  • Fostering a culture of working together as club members to promote photography and Peninsula Camera Club to a wider audience.

End Of Year Competition Reminder

This is a quick reminder to PCC members that have not already sent me their entries for the End of Year competition.

Entries will close at midnight on the 30th of October, so that is now only 5 days away. As I need to get everything prepared for the judging less than a week later, there will be no extensions. If your images are received after that time, then they will not be included this year.

I look forward to getting all your entries soon. Thankyou to those of you who have already supplied your EOY entries.

2020 Print Competition – abandoned
Sadly, the few months that we could run the Print competition was not enough to be able to make any awards for this year. Therefore, the MC has decided to abandon the Print competition for 2020.
Note: Any prints that were entered in 2020 will be eligible to be entered in 2021
