The Desert Camera Club normally holds Digital and Print Competitions at several regular meetings during the Club year. There are competitions held in different categories selected from among Pictorial, Nature, Photo Travel, Photojournalism, and Monochrome. Winning images are normally published in the Gallery section of this website. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Competitions for all categories are held every "competition month" (see below). The Photojournalism category alternates between Photojournalism General and Photojournalism Human Interest. The upcoming schedule will be announced at least three months in advance, although may be subject to late changes for unavoidable reasons.
Deadline for entry is the Saturday immediately preceding the meeting at midnight, sharp. The competition normally opens for entries 2 weeks before the competition.
Our competition year is changing. For transition purposes, the 2014 Competition Year will run from December, 2013 through December 2014. Starting in 2015, our competition year will strictly run on a calendar year basis.
