The next Print competition meeting of the Houston Photographic Society is coming soon, Tuesday, July 22, 2014 at the Tracy Gee Community Center starting at 7:00 pm.

The special Assignment for this meeting is "America".

The judge for the meeting is Craig H. Hartley, a National and International Awards winning editorial photographer, a three-times Pulitzer nominee and a serious photojournalist based in Houston. His website:

We will handle your pictures with a great respect as we do on any art show. Please prepare, label and present your work neatly.

If you need help, please e-mail me.

See you there.


Monthly Print Competition

Please note you must be a paid member to participate.
You may bring up to 2 matted prints to the competition and enter them into one of the seven categories.

After the competition, folks meet at the La Madeline to "critique the critiques".
10001 Westheimer Rd., Houston, Texas

Competition Overview
We divide our prints into 7 categories:

Bronze - New members
Bronze Black & White
Bronze Color
Silver - Member with at least 1 year in HPS
Silver Black & White
Silver Color
Gold - Members with at least 2 years in HPS
Gold Black & White
Gold Color
Special Assignment - Assigned each month (Includes all levels)

If one of the categories has less than 3 prints, it will be moved up to the next higher level.

Each ribbon counts towards the following:
1. progression to the next category for the following year,
2. participation in the annual print competition,
2. the Excellence in Photography annual award, and
3. inclusion in exhibitions during the year.

Our club is somewhat unique relative to other clubs in that our competitions are judged by outside photographers who not only pick the winners in each category, but also give a short critique of each submitted photograph. Each of our club members values this critical feedback so they may improve.
