THE VENUE

Broken Hill Civic Centre, 31 Chloride St, Broken Hill

Broken Hill is a frontier mining town in the far west of New South Wales and is set midst spectacular desert landscapes. The area is loaded with stunning and unique photographic opportunities and has a dramatic mining history. The town is studded with heritage buildings and is known as one of Australia’s most famous outback towns.

The Broken Hill Civic Centre will be our head quarters for APSCON 2020 and is purpose built for conference style events. Recently refurbished and comfortably appointed the Civic Centre has lifts and ramps for those who need them.

Registrations will be 3-4 pm on the 4 th September and will be followed by a casual sunset photography and nibbles opportunity. Those who wish to register later in the program will be catered for. There will be two and a half days of events within the Civic Centre and in surrounding areas followed by afternoon tours into the local region. The fourth full day will be devoted to discovering Broken Hill’s secrets beginning with a sunrise photography/breakfast event.

There will be an option to take a full day tour to White Cliffs on 9th Sept at a special APS member price.

The Palace Hotel

227 Argent Street, Broken Hill NSW 2880

Sunday 6th September 6:00pm
70.00 pp - 3 Course Meal with alternate drop + tea/coffee

APSCON has historically been a social event where APS members gather to rekindle old friendships and make new ones. It’s a time for delegates to enjoy and share their love of photography and to explore different regions. The dinner has always been a highlight of the event and considered a special occasion by all who attend.

This year the awards dinner will be a unique experience as we’ve booked an upstairs room at the iconic Palace Hotel for a night of fun and laughter.

The History of the Palace Hotel Broken Hill

The building was erected as a coffee palace in 1889 at a cost of £12, 190 pounds. The Temperance Movement (a group that believes in non-licensed venues for the community) commissioned the build; They had a vision of a place for fine dining and coffee. Setting it apart from the licensed hotels that were abundant in broken hill.

The architect was Alfred Dunn from Melbourne; he had successfully won a competition to design the hotel. The build was unprofitable as a coffee palace and ultimately became a licensed hotel in 1892.

The Murals

Mario painted a copy of Botticelli's Venus on the ceiling; he offered £1000 for anyone who could match his painting in the blank area next to his painting.

An Indigenous artist from Port Augusta by the name of Gordon Waye came into the hotel. Mario asked him to paint a wall in the front bar, which Gordon painted in 8hrs. Over a period of years, Gordon painted all the other murals mostly in a landscape theme.

The only stipulation was that scenes contain a water feature so that the hotel would feel like an oasis in the outback. The blank area is still not painted on the ceiling of the foyer. All the hand stencilled wallpaper is Mario's work.

The Spiritual Home of Priscilla Queen of the Desert

The Palace Hotel Broken Hill was used as a stop-over for the characters in the 1994 Australian iconic movie, Priscilla Queen of the Desert. 

Many favourite scenes from the movie were filmed in and around Broken Hill and throughout various locations within the Palace Hotel. You can put yourself right in the scene of the film and stay in the 'Priscilla Suite', the room where the characters of the movie stayed.

Includes: 3 Course Meal with alternate drop + tea/coffee

$ 70.00

There were many highlights during APSCON 2012. Analysis of the surveys returned by delegates reveals that for most of them the two presentations by Robyn Beeche were certainly at the top of their lists of things they considered to be the best sessions. There is no doubt whatsoever that Robyn was a highlight. The high numbers of people that took opportunities to speak privately with her during the week and the percentage that scored both her sessions 10 out of 10 clearly demonstrate that. Robyn’s first presentation was about her fashion photography in 1980s London, whilst her second (very different) presentation was about her documentary photography in India, especially relating to the Holi festival. Robyn’s invitation to Brian Rope to put together a tour for a small group of members to visit India in early 2014 and stay at the ashram where she lives saw sixteen people rush to add their names to a list of interested persons.

Natasha Egan’s one-on-one personal portfolio critiques with a fortunate ten APSCONeers was certainly a highlight for those people. One of them described it as the best experience she had ever had at an APSCON - high praise indeed from someone who has attended many previous APSCONs.

Phil McFadden’s presentation, High Dynamic Range without “HDR”, also rated very highly, with many delegates overjoyed to hear a most instructive session. One survey respondent described the presentation as “well thought out, very instructional, well delivered, brilliant”. Raoul Slater, Margot Manchester and Gerard Saide also earned high praise for their presentations. The word “inspiring” was used to describe each of them more than once. Each of those presentations would have been a highlight for various delegates.

Another definite highlight was the first-time use of large screen LCD TVs to display numerous digital images programs throughout the week. The programs changed daily so there was always something new to see. Together with the well lit and presented print exhibitions they made up a feast of photography for viewing.

The panel discussion about the Society’s past was a highlight for the many who thoroughly enjoyed the reminisences, particularly by two of our Foundation Members, Graham Burstow and Bill Smit. Particularly for our members who have been part of APS for many years, the recognition given to Past Presidents, Foundation Members and Honorary Life members was greatly appreciated. Screening images from the 1st APS National and from the Society’s permanent Collection added to the recognition of our past.

The behind the scenes tour of the National Gallery of Australia’s photography collections area was a very special highlight for those who found themselves in very close proximity to original prints made by some famous photographers who they have long admired. It was something they never thought they would experience.

Of the outings that were offered the highlight for most was the trip to Strathnairn Homestead and gallery, where a special exhibition by members of the Canberra Photographic Society and entertainment by two singing groups was enjoyed. Many photographs were taken of the performers and a range of models, as well as of the numerous things to be found around the extensive property.

The Dance City dancers at the opening/welcome session was another highlight for many, whether it was the opportunity to photograph good dancers or simply to enjoy their performances.

For many of those attending their first ever APSCON, the highlight was simply being there and soaking it all up as they made friends and learned so much about what this Society is all about.

Of course, for the winner of the 50th anniversary participation prize and the winners of raffle prizes involving overseas photographic tours provided by the major sponsor, UDesign PhotoTours, their wins, no doubt, were also highlights.

And, of course, for others receiving their photographic skill or service honours and awards at the 50th anniversary Society dinner would have been a particular highlight. The grand venue, Gandel Hall at the National Gallery of Australia, and the fine food and beverages package just added to the occasion.

Finally, the quality handling of the audiovisuals for all presentations by the highly experienced pair of Brad King and Peter Edwards and the excellent organisation by the APSCON Committee is also worthy of the tag “highlight”.

This competition, now in its 39th year, is to encourage conventioneers to display photographs taken at the previous APSCON for the interest of all members and to assist in publicising APSCON.

2. Photographs taken at and during the Convention will be eligible including those taken during official pre or post Convention tours.
3. No entry fee is required.

People connected with APSCON would go into the People section as per the definition.

Section 2 – PEOPLE OF THE CONVENTION

This section is confined to photographs of conventioneers and any people assisting in organising, entertaining, performing official duties and the like.

APSCON provides a varied programme of exhibitions, lectures, workshops, tours and social events. A diverse range of top quality photographers are always on the programme. The Societie's annual business meetings and annual dinners are also held at this time, at which APS and FIAP Honours for photographic skill and service to photography are presented as well as awards for the Who's Who for the current year.

Many members make APSCON the basis of their annual holidays and attend every year without fail and many life long friendships have been made at this time.
