That's right, for the first time the WA branch will host the SA & WA Awards for Cinematography on November 5, 2011. These, the 31st combined awards, are to be held at The Royal Perth Yacht Club, Matilda Bay, Perth with pre dinner drinks starting at 6:00pm.

Concurrently the SA branch will hold an awards celebration with a live feed from the venue so we can see who has won what. At our event we will have a meal and present our sponsors plaques and a few local awards before crossing live to WA at around 9:00pm. This should be a great night so keep an eye out for more details on the ACS website or in our newsletters.

This initiative was instigated and encouraged by the SA committee after SA holding not only the 2010 SA & WA awards in November last year but then the 2011 National Awards here in May so we are looking forward to having someone else look after the awards this November. We still will have a fair bit to organise for the concurrent night here, as well as help WA get their first awards up and running.

The 2012 ACS State Awards for Cinematography will be held in Adelaide.

Upcoming AGM / Quiz Night

The SA Branch AGM will be held Monday night, August 8 at 6:30pm followed by a Quiz Night. These tend to be fun nights with as little time as possible spent on the formal side of things so come along and test out your knowledge about cameras, lenses, cinematography & movies.

Nomination forms to be on the committee are downloadable from our website and the committee gets together generally on the first Monday night of each month for about an hour. So if you want to help our branch or influence what we do send in a nomination form to me. Stay tuned for the venue, it will be announced in the next newsletter in July.

Trash n Treasure?

We are looking for registration of interest in an ACS SA branch Trash n Treasure meet to be held in either early September or October. Here's a chance to sell/swap that bit of gear you no longer require or to find that elusive bit of equipment at a bargain price. So rummage through your shed, cellar or wherever for that gear that's taking up valuable space and offload it at our ACS Trash n Treasure meet.

Register Interest in Trash n Treasure Meet » - Please put: Registering for Trash n Treasure in subject line and, if you wish, in the body of the email what you have to sell or swap.

President's sign off

We hope you all will support the awards being held in Perth and if you are thinking of heading that way maybe you can schedule your trip around November 5. You never know you may be able to make some of the trip tax deductible - of course I cannot give tax advice so please get your own expert advice regarding this.

As always we would like to put on events that you, our membership, want so email me and let me know what you are interested in and we will do our best to put on a trade night. And remember to communicate with us so we can try to do our best for you. Recently we achieved getting Multi Camera News back as an award category after suggestions from our membership.

In fact any ideas for trade or fun nights would be greatly appreciated. As would pictures of you shooting in wild or exotic locations - with a caption or even a short story would be great.

Happy shooting,
Ernie Clark ACS - SA President
