Interclub Competitions



VAPS INTERCLUBThe aim of the VAPS Interclub Competition is to encourage and improve photography throughout Victoria and to facilitate the comparison of standards between clubs and members. In the spirit of competition, each club should have as many as possible of its members represented. Clubs are encouraged to select entries from across their range of members for the sections of Prints and EDPI images. This provides all members with the opportunity to be part of the Interclub and have their work assessed and displayed at the annual Convention at which all images entered will be displayed or projected, every effort will be made to present all entries however it is dependent on the venue available. These rules apply to all sections of the competition except for Audio Visuals, which are covered by a separate document. Click here to contact the Interclub Director.
