Sandy Smith Memorial Photography Competition
About the competition

The Sandy Smith Memorial Photo Competion is held on the long weekend of June every year. The competition is open to all ages and all level of experience.

 

The exhibition is held at the CWA hall in Gulgong during the Henry Lawson Festival.

 

The Sandy Smith Memorial Photography Competition honours our much loved and respected President, Sandy Smith who died suddenly early in 2014. It commemorates Sandy’s remarkable life and her contribution to the Club.

 

Sandy had many passions, none more so than travelling to learn about new cultures and record these experiences through her remarkable photography.  Sandy frequently presented her travel photos of interesting places at Club meetings. To acknowledge Sandy’s travel and as a way of encouraging others to look outside their world, Cudgegong Camera Club has added a category named “Travel” to its annual Sandy Smith Photography Competition.

Sandy Smith

 

Cudgegong Camera Club’s Sandy Smith Photography Competition honours our much loved and respected President, Sandy Smith who died suddenly early in 2014. It commemorates Sandy’s remarkable life and her contribution to the Club.

 

Sandy was a remarkable woman - full of life, energy, compassion, generosity, talents, skills, dreams, hope and kindness - qualities that she shared with Cudgegong Camera Club members over many years.

 

A born teacher (and as a professional for many years) Sandy taught her photography skills and shared her knowledge at Club meetings each month, making sure new and interesting topics were delivered to members and to encourage further participation throughout the community.
