Competition Meeting

Grand Theatre Center for the Arts

Hi members of the Camera Club meetup! We'd love to have you join us for the competition meeting! We have over 200 members of the meetup group but we've only met a small number of you. We meet on the second Wednesday of most months in the Grand Theatre. A few people have mentioned learning about Photography and software and I thought it would be a good opportunity to spend some time with everyone. After the education portion of the meeting stick around to watch the competition! We have a judge critique photos to offer feedback and suggestions for improving your photography and skills. If you would like to participate in the NEXT competition then you can join the club (pay the annual club fees). We can go over the rules for submission, categories, and other details if you have any questions after watching the judging! Those entering photos must be a paid member, but we invite you to join us for a meeting to see the wonderful photos submitted by our members and see how the competition goes. We can provide guidance for preparing your photo for competition if you need help. Our monthly special and rotating categories have been posted on the TCC website at: http://www.tracycameraclub.org/competition/competition-categories Hope to see you there!
