Audio Visuals for 2018

VAPS (Victorian Association of Photographic Societies) of which our club is a member is updating its AV rules. While the final draft has not yet been signed off, it appears that this will happen this month. Some of the changes for next year are as follows:-

  1. Three seconds of “black” slide is required at the start of each AV
  2. The 3:21 category will now be Up To 3:21 (3 minutes and 21 seconds)
  3. Up to 20% of the AV can be Video
  4. The open section (for VAPS Comps) can be up to 12 minutes – HOWEVER Bendigo’s maximum AV will remain at 5 minutes
  5. COPYRIGHT – This is the sole responsibility of the AV producer.   This may mean that you use Royalty Free music or play your own music or do your own voice over

Bendigo Camera Club will adopt these changes for 2018.

The AV structure for the competition will be as follows:-

  • 3:21 (IE – up to 3 minutes and 21 seconds) like an open topic with an “item” to be on each slide
  • Open subject up to 5 minutes
  • Set subject again up to 5 minutes
