Interclub Competition Deadline is Saturday
These next few cold, blustery days will be a good time to look for some of your best photos to enter the 2019 Interclub Competition. The deadline for entering is this Saturday, February 2, at 5:00 pm. The digital entries are all done by email, but the prints need to be delivered to the drop off site by the same deadline. Bring your prints to the Phipps lobby between 2 and 3 pm on Saturday to get them delivered. Rules and entry forms are here and on the Camera Council website.
February 6 Meeting
Our first meeting in February will feature a club salon. Our salons serve two purposes. Some of our members enjoy the competition aspect where scores reflect their level of skill and progress in improving, and their skill compared to other members. The verbal critique has educational value to both the photographer and to other members. We ask the judge to express what they like about every image and what the photographer might have done to improve. I always submit what I think are real winners, and a judge will help me to see what I’ve missed with an image I have fallen in love with. I learn something at every salon and because the critiques are about real images that real members of our club have submitted, it has more relevance.
If you haven’t already paid your 2019 dues, bring a check or cash to the meeting. Dues are $35.00 per year for a single membership and are payable in January every year. Family membership is $35.00 plus $10.00 for each family member living under the same roof.
- It’s not too late to commit to a photography goal for 2019. Please use the contact form to make a formal commitment. We will share your achievements at the January 2020 meeting.
- Consider putting together a portfolio, a new benefit of membership. These are not intended to be competitive and there are no rules other than the images need to fit a theme. They make a great introduction of your work and interests to other members. There are already 11 member portfolios on our web site. See if you can find them!
