OUR REGULAR MONTHLY MEETINGS are 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 agreement of your Board in May 2021, the age of competition images has been modified for the unforseeable future. In the Reality divisions (Nature, Photo Travel, PJ General, and PJ Human Interest) there is now no time limit (prior restriction was 18 then 36 months) of the date of competition. Images in Monochrome and Pictorial divisions also 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 at 6:00PM on the Wednesday (8 days) 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.
