Jervis Bay and St Georges Basin, Shoalhaven, NSW
Monthly competitions at the Bay and Basin Camera Club consist of two sections, an Open section where any photograph may be entered, and a Set Subject competition, where entered photographs must relate closely to, and clearly reflect, the Set Subject which is chosen by the committee and advertised up to a year in advance.
The object of the Set Subject competition is to encourage members to try subjects that they might normally avoid, hopefully stretching their creativity, increasing their photographic knowledge and improving their photography.
Members are encouraged to take photos specifically for the Set Subject, rather than rummaging through shoe boxes or hard drives searching for a photo that fits the subject.

March 2019 - Creative (digital)
Creative can pretty much be anything, with any edits applied, but the original image or images have to be something you have taken with your camera!
April 2019 - The Human Body (print)
You can photograph the whole human body, or different body parts - totally up to you (and the judge).
May 2019 - The Night Sky (digital)
Go outside after dark to someplace fairly open, point your camera at the sky and press the shutter - you have taken a picture of the night sky!
June 2019 - The S Curve (print)
The S Curve is one of the basics of photographic composition. S Curves can be found in nature, or man-made, or even arranged - as shown below.

Living things and especially mammals, birds and fish that are neither human nor domesticated. Images of animals, birds or fish taken in zoos or aquariums are excluded. Domesticated or farm animals are excluded.
Australiana is a term for those things that are quintessentially Australian; things that are symbolic and uniquely ours. Your subjects might be flora or fauna that are unique to Australia, or perhaps something cultural such as representations of our indigenous culture. You could focus on an Australian emblem of industry, sport, cuisine or folklore. Or a renowned geographical feature or piece of architecture. The photography must boldly say "Australia" to you and the world.
A landmark from the built or natural environment located in the Shoalhaven area (click here for Shoalhaven map). Local heroes or people are excluded.
Extreme close up image, of very small subjects and living organisms, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size.
