Fairfax's Clique photo club to close
In a sad day for the photographic community in Australia, Fairfax's popular Clique Photo Club has announced it is to close from 31 July.
The photo club, run from the newsrooms of The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, had been seeking a new sponsor after Nikon ended their sponsorship of the club in April 2017.
In an email to members, Clique confirmed they had been unable to secure a major sponsor to support its continuation, and thanked members of the club.
"Your support and commitment to Clique as a member has been so motivating and deeply appreciated by all involved. In particular, we thank those who made a financial contribution to Clique through paid membership or by participating in a workshop."
In April, Fairfax announced cuts to editorial jobs in a bid to save more than $30 million in costs at a number of publications owned by the media company.
