Scott Mellish Sketching or Drawing Competition

Thanks to Alexander Massey of The Astronomical Society of New South Wales for submitting the following invitation to our contributors and visitors:

Scott Mellish was a long time and valued member of the Astronomical Society of NSW. His knowledge of amateur astronomy and dedication to observation and sketching was unrivaled within the society and much admired by all those who knew him.

In honour of his memory, the ASNSW is proud to announce the inaugural Scott Mellish Amateur Sketching or Drawing Competition. This competition will be held annually at the South Pacific Star Party and aims to promote the art of Sketching and Drawing within the world-wide amateur astronomical community.

The competition is open to any member of an amateur astronomical society throughout the world and will be judged by popular vote during the star party on the 21st April 2012. Winners will be announced on the day.

  1. Hi all,

    There is less than 8 weeks until the South Pacific Star Party in Australia. If you are considering sending entries from outside of Australia, allow at least three to four weeks for the parcel to arrive through the mail. This leaves less than four weeks for your entries to be finalised and posted.

    Good luck and clear skies,

    Alex M.

  2. Hi all,

    We’ve been asked about the situation with returning entries to their owners. The solution that has been come up with is every entrant will be asked via email if they would like their entries returned. Those who do will then be sent a quote for the cost of the return mail from our Australia Post. The entrant then pays into the ASNSW Paypal account the quote amount and the entry/entries will be returned.

    I believe you do not need to have a Paypal account to use Paypal to make a payment, only a credit card.

    Account details will be forwarded with subsequent correspondence.
