Schedule of Exhibitions

The 2010 photographic exhibition showcased members’ work and through it, the places that we love. The images ranged from flora and fauna to landscapes and people enjoying their environment in typical NPA fashion.

14 May to 2 August at the Namadgi Visitors’ Centre.

5 June to 13 June at the Woden public library.

2 July to 9 July at Tuggeranong Library

2 July to 9 July at Gungahlin Library

Conditions of Entry

The following is a list of conditions and guidelines for contributing photographers to the 2010 NPA photographic exhibition.

  • Objective of the Exhibition.   To showcase the NPA by displaying photographs of the environment we seek to protect and people actively engaging with that environment.
  • Image Criteria.  The following criteria apply to images submitted for the exhibition:
    • Subject matter:
      • natural and cultural heritage;
      • people engaged in walks/work parties;
      • localities not limited to Namadgi but may include any areas regularly visited by NPA-organized activities;
    • images are to be submitted as A4 (or close to) prints;
    • no framed or matted images;
    • colour only
    • image format may be landscape or portrait;
    • full contact details of each participant to be provided;
    • each image to be accompanied by a caption of up to 50 words describing the location and the significance of the image (the caption may be as verse or prose); and
    • no limit on number of images submitted.
  • Image Selection.  Images for display will be selected on their merits by the NPA 50th Anniversary Organizing Committee.   Most display images will be at A4 size with a small number selected for use as the centerpieces at A3 or A2 size.   Contributors will be notified of the size needed for an image selected for enlargement.
    • The cost of printing to A3 or A2 will be borne by the NPA.
    • If you are submitting digital images and would like your image to be considered for enlargement, please ensure that the in-camera image file is of sufficient size to ensure printing at 250 dots per inch to A2 or A3 – as a rough guide a 10 mega-pixel camera should allow an A3 enlargement provided the lens quality and focus is of a high order.
  • Large Images.   The large (A3 and A2) images will be available for purchase upon completion of the exhibition. 
  • Legal Matters. 
    • No image which may breach copyright laws or any other legal right will be accepted. If your image could be perceived by the Association as a potential breach of copyright or other legal rights, please provide written permission by the party which may have standing with regard to the copyright or other legal right issue.
    • The copyright in your image remains with you. By submitting your image to the Association you are granting the Association a free, Australia wide, non-exclusive license to use the image in upcoming Association publications such as the NPA Bulletin or promotional materials and on the Association's website. The image will be available for collection on request once a copy has been taken. The Association does not accept any liability or responsibility for any loss or damage whatsoever suffered as a result of direct or indirect use of your image.
    • The image should not have previously been published in a calendar or similar publication.

Submission of Images.  Entries are due in the Association’s office no later than Monday, 31 October 2009. Our office address is 3 Childers Street Acton ACT 2601 and our postal address is GPO Box 544 Canberra ACT 2601.
