2. Hillcrest Camera Club Member's Exhibition 2013

We are very happy to announce that the date and venue for our Annual Hillcrest Camera Club Member's Exhibition have been finalised. All of our members are given a chance to put their best work on display and to promote the club to the general public. The previous exhibitions have been a huge success, so invite all of your friends and family to come and see what your passion for photography is all about.

You have to submit your mounted prints and digital images at our next meeting, because we need to know how many prints to cater for. Mike Volckman has kindly agree to put together slide shows for us and will need some time to put them together. All club members are welcome to exhibit their work and we encourage everyone to have at least one mounted print up for display.


Printed photos must be A4 (8"x10") or larger and they must be mounted. For those that need to have mounts made, contact Harry Lock on 082 576 0199 as soon as possible. He will need some time to make the mounts, so please don't delay. The usual mounts are 30 X 40 cm in size and are designed to take a 20 X 30 cm prints (A4). They cost R25.00 each. They are white or black and come with a backing board. Also speak to him regarding other sizes.

Digital photos must be saved onto CD/DVD to their maximum size and resolution (dimensions). They can be saved as JPEGs or TIFFs. Please make sure you don't have small or low quality images, because they won't look good when displayed on a large screen. The files should be larger than 3MB each.

Photos must have been taken after the previous exhibition. New members must also please submit their work. We love seeing what you have done and it is a great way to see how you have improved when you submit for next year's exhibition!

Date: 26 October 2013
Time: 07:30am until 4pm
Place: Kloof Village Mall (where the Kloof Spar is)

Previous exhibitions held at Christians Centre (2011) and at Hillcrest Corner (2012).
