Welcome to our competition entry website

Forster Digital Photography Club (FDPC) is based in Forster, New South Wales, Australia. Our membership covers a very wide age range and caters for all levels of skill , from beginners to experts.

The mission of the Forster Digital Photography Club is to encourage and support the creative art of digital photography for its members in a friendly environment. FDPC is a web-supported, photography club where members enjoy interactive forums, display images, hold regular competitions, invite guest speakers, hold field visits, share ideas and develop skills.

Our club holds monthly competitions and meetings designed to improve photographic skills. All competitions are digital based and in general we do not hold print competitions or events. Members require Internet access to submit their competition photographs electronically and also an email account to receive club information.

FDPC meets monthly at 7:00pm in the Great Lakes or Wallis Room at Club Forster, Strand Street, Forster. Visitors are always welcome. Meetings are usually held on the third Wednesday of each month but this may vary on occasions. Please see our event calendar for details.
