Monthly competitions among club members (you must be a member to enter) are conducted on the third Tuesday each month for color and monochrome prints as well as projected digital images. Competitions are divided into three skill categories (novice, intermediate, and advanced). Judging is performed by an outside professional photographer or educator. The list below shows current and past judges. Click on “Upcoming Events” to see a full list of upcoming weekly activities. Competition Gallery
Note: Due to the pandemic and the need for virtual meetings, print categories will be excluded. Instead, only two digital classes (color and monochrome) will be judged.
