Nelson National Triptych Salon 2018

Changes to format for 2018

The popular Triptych Salon hosted by the Nelson Camera Club will be on again this year but with a few changes to make it easier for you to enter and for us to host.

There will be no print entries this year. Projected images only. Instead of an exhibition, there will be a fabulous Presentation and Awards evening where printed copies of the high awarded images will be on display and an audio visual of all the accepted images will be shown.

The catalogue will be redesigned to a larger A4 Landscape size to enable bigger easier to view images. There will be a small extra charge for those who would like a copy, to cover the higher cost of printing.

  • The entry dates will remain the same, open early August and close on the 31st August.

Soon there will be revised rules on the Nelson Camera Club Triptych website but you can be sure the few basic rules will remain the same. The three images must not touch or overlap each other. There must be a clear division between each image and there must be no fourth image in the background.

For those who have never made a triptych there will soon be some “How To” instructions on the Nelson Camera Club website.

WPS Impact: January 2018

We have a completely jam packed year ahead for you, with a huge range of great speakers, field trips and workshops.

We believe it will be an exciting year of photography. Since our last meeting of the year, we have had the chance to examine the needs and wants of the membership as revealed in the survey that Shannon Doyle conducted towards the end of last year. Thanks to all of you who took the time and trouble to give us much valuable feedback.
