Reminder - Mounting Training


Mounting of Photographs

For display and competition purposes, your photographs need to be mounted on Matt Board.

You can purchase mounts already cut to size from various outlets including in Yea, but it can be expensive. The alternative is to cut your own ,and several members have expressed a desire to do so but need a refresher course (at least ) in cutting.

There will be a workshop in The R.S.L
Saturday January 5th.2013 @ 9.00am

The club has the cutter and tools, but you must bring your own board.

Board can be purchased in full sheets or half sheets. A full sheet makes 6  frames A4

Board can be purchased from FrameCo in Nunawading (club discount?) or Cnr. Of Canterbury and Dorset Roads.

This is an ideal opportunity to prepare mounts for the Rotary Display.

Come on - Have a go!!!!
See you all there.

The committee has been invited to put on a display of members’ photographs during the Rotary Arts Show, over the Australia Day weekend. To put on a decent showing, we ask/require/expect ALL members to submit between 6 and 10 photographs.

There is no cost to display, but there are some basic rules:
1.Members only photographs.
2.Any subject.

Note: The material must be suitable for viewing by a junior audience, and any material deemed unsuitable by the committee will not be displayed. The committee’s decision on this matter is final.

Photographs displaying recognizable people will require written permission from the person(s) displayed.

3.Photographs must be mounted on matt board with the name of the member on the reverse and contact details, for the return of their photographs.

4. Preferred minimum size is 8x10 ( 20x25 cm) - maximum  18 x 20 (45x51cm)approx..

5.Mounted photographs must be delivered to either Kim Wyllie in Aldous Street Yea or Judy Hoffmann at Chisholm & Shaw , by January 14th 2013

Help will be appreciated to man the display over that weekend and to assemble on the Friday.
Happy snapping - you have 12 days to complete your mission!
