All judges for the end of year judging are willing to participate in virtual judging. This contest will not be aired on our Facebook page. Results for end of year will be given at our end of year banquet or aired on Facebook May 27, 2020. 


I am now accepting images for the Club Events Contest on May 20th. I am giving everyone plenty of time to choose and work on your images because, I am sure, many of you have tons of images from the events you attended. 

Because I anticipate a flood of images I am pushing back the deadline to Sunday, May 17th by 5PM so myself and John have time to sort and code the images. This will also allow any resubmissions if needed due to sizing errors etc.

The list of events is on our website.

There will be only one winner per catagory. The winner of each category will win a free membership to the club for 2020-2021 club year.

We have a great number of images, come join in the on-line camaraderie! Who knows when the next time we’ll have a club contest meeting where you can sip an adult beverage in your pajamas. Also, don’t forget that during the test stream we had other club members, past members and members who have moved from the area join in, let’s put on a good showing and give them a taste of the great photographers we have in the club!

The club group link is:

The stream starts promptly at 7pm EST but will go live with a countdown prior to that so that people can get in and get cozy.

If you have not signed up for a Facebook account, please do it tonight and join the group where the admins will approve your request. Note that we have members who use nicknames on Facebook if you’re worried about privacy.

Thanks to Louis, Bob and the Officers for a lot of heavy lifting this week. See you there!
