The Spike or Victoria University College Review 1948
1948 promises to be an interesting year for the Photographic Club. With a much increased membership, it has a programme which should be of great interest and benefit to all its members. And by the end of the year the Club will be in possession of a darkroom of its own in the Weir House basement which will be well equipped for developing, printing and enlarging.
Indicative of the new enthusiasm in the Club were the large number of entries received for the Spike 1948 Photographic Competition, their wide variety, and their improved technical quality. Further competitions will be held during 1948, including the selection of photographs for the Jubilee issue of Spike which will appear towards the end of the year. The winning entries of all the competitions will be awarded prizes.
Other Club functions this year will include demonstrations on technique, visits to places of interest to all photographers, and lectures by local authorities on various aspects of the art.
The committee hopes that still more amateurpage 53
photographers among the students of the College will associate themselves with the Club, and avail themselves of its many benefits to make their hobby more fruitful and worthwhile.
