OUR REGULAR MONTHLY MEETING, beginning December 2019, will be held on the 3rd Thursday of every month (except during our summer break in July and August) at 6:00 PM as a virtual meeting via Zoom (video conference). Please note that the CRITSIG meetings are also now a virtual meeting via Zoom. Please check this website often as meeting sites may change pending ongoing health conditions and CA regulations. 

 

By edict of your Board in December 2020, the age of competition images has been modified for 2021. In the Reality divisions (Nature, Photo Travel, PJ General, and PJ Human Interest) images must now have been captured within 36 months (prior restriction was 18 then 24 months) of the date of competition. Images in Monochrome and Pictorial divisions still have no restrictions so these images could have been obtained any time.

 

CRITSIG (Critiquing Special Interest Group) is a group session where members submit images for others in the group to suggest improvements.  CRITSIG  now meets as a virtual meeting via Zoom in competition months from 9:00 AM until Noon on the Wednesday before the competition judging. Due to COVID,  all 2020 meetings were held via video conference and will continue to be held via video conference in 2021 until further notice.

NEW IMAGE SIZE REQUIREMENTS FOR CLUB COMPETITIONS EFFECTIVE OCTOBER 1, 2018.

Images must be not more that 1400 pixels in width and 1280 pixels in height. Click here for S4C article on how to downsize images to meet new requirement!
