Calling all photographers: come and join the Clique

Are you keen to indulge your passion for photography? Then come and join The Sydney Morning Herald Clique Photographers’ Association, a brand new photographic community launched this week by the Herald that’s designed to challenge, support and reward photographers of all ages and skill levels. 

If you have a hankering to join a community of like-minded people and want to indulge your creative photographic side, Clique is what you’ve been looking for.

Every month, members of Clique will be given a photographic assignment from the photo editors at the Herald, with different topics designed to let you display various skills, with the winning photos to be published in the Herald on the last Friday of each month.

In addition, Clique members will also get special access to feedback and portfolio reviews with the Herald’s team of award-winning photographers, as well as discounts on photographic equipment and entry to special events thanks to Clique principal partners Canon, Digital Camera Warehouse and Adobe, and venue partner The State Library.

If you are already a subscriber to Fairfax Media, you’ll be able to join Clique for just $25, a 50% discount to the $50 membership fee for non-subscribers.
