National Exhibition 2020

From the organisers A year of many firsts that included a rethinking following the cancellation of the National Convention and the inability of not being able to show the Sony National Exhibition. This year was the first time the exhibition was organised by a Council appointed sub-committee rather than a club. Our thanks to Melanie Dick LPSNZ, Nicola Pye LPSNZ and David Steer APSNZ for their help in being the ‘sub-committee’ for 2020.You may recognise their names as they also brought you the Dunedin National Convention and National Exhibition in 2018, along with the Dunedin Festival of Photography in recent years. Council intends to continue using this format of an organising sub-committee concept in the future. Ideally we would like to appoint members for more than one year so the knowledge is retained and the wheel does not need to be reinvented each year. An advantage of being on this committee is that most of the work occurs for the few months leading up to the convention and a short time after, therefore does not entail a full 12 month’s work. For this format to work it requires people willing to put their hand up, so naturally I would be very happy to hear from any member that would like to be involved, regardless of where you live. The organising committee cannot do every aspect for the exhibition so a club, in the location of that year’s national convention will be called upon, when more people are required. This year thanks go to the members of the Dunedin Photographic Society for their help on selection day. If selection day is ever in your town I encourage you to accept the request to help and I guarantee you will learn a lot observing the process in action. Selection day would not be possible without the selectors who all traveled to Dunedin. At the start of the day the number of entries to get through seemed daunting. By the end of the day the selection had been made with every photograph looked at multiple times. I thank the selectors for their conscientious and good humoured effort. While we had all the judging talent in town we also asked them to judge the four PSNZ Interclub competitions. This was another first. An often unnoticed task is engraving and distributing the trophies and medals. Once again our super efficient Trophies and Medals Coordinator, Janice McKenna will be looking after this aspect, once we get to Level 2 and beyond. Thank you Janice! Our thanks must also go to the many entrants who submitted works, and also to those whose work was selected. We hope every one enjoys viewing the images in this first digital catalogue. Finally, our thanks to SONY for their first year in sponsoring the national exhibition. Kind regards, Craig McKenzie Councillor for National Competitions

President’s Welcome I am pleased to welcome you to the catalogue for the 2020 PSNZ SONY National Exhibition. As Craig has mentioned, this year’s exhibition was organised in a different format by an off Council sub committee and it was good to hear that this new style worked efficiently and smoothly. Another first for us, and purely due to the nation being catapulted into COVID-19 lock down is to bring you the catalogue in a digital format. Congratulations to every one who was involved in this year’s national exhibition: from the first ever sub-committee to the photographers who submitted their images; the skilled selectors; the volunteers from the Dunedin Photographic Society to Craig McKenzie for his guidance and to Paul Whitham LPSNZ for bringing parts of the exhibition alive here. When the selectors congregated in Dunedin on 13-14 March for the selection weekend who would have thought that our world as we knew it, would be turned upside down only 10 days later! When Council sadly made the decision to cancel the 2020 National Convention we knew there were many other annual highlights that would also be affected. Knowing that we would not get the chance for our members to see the outstanding, successful images in the national exhibition first hand, was also another blow we had to endure. Like we have all had to do during this unusual time, we look for alternative opportunities to solve a problem. I’m sure you will agree being able to look at the images from the trophy winners through to the honours ribbons is the next best thing, as well as being to scroll through those who received acceptances. We will be placing this link on to our website in the same way we post the link to CameraTalk, so please share the link with as many people as you can. And do take the time to congratulate your fellow members on their success. Lockdown has been an unusual time for all of us and I know while every one’s circumstances are very different, I hope that you have all coped well; made use of the quieter, unrestricted timeframe to indulge in some other personal interests and/or projects, and generally looked after yourself in your bubble. As we contemplate the move to Level 2 I’m sure that like me, you will all be eager to get out and about beyond the 20 minute drive limit, cameras in hand, and start photographing more of the objects, places and people we love to do.
