Current standings and results can be seen here.
Six times each year we hold an intra-club competition.
Images are submitted about one month before the actual competition night to an external judge for anonymous review.
On competition nights the judges will score and comment on each image.
When submitting images for competition, please follow these directions carefully.
There are two classes: Class B for the less experienced and Class A for those with more experience.
Images submitted for the nature category should follow the PSA guidelines (see Nature – Wildlife and Non-wildlife Genres under Image Study). The judges will be instructed on what we accept within all genres.
You should receive confirmation that your images were accepted shortly after submission.
Because of our need to get the images to the judges in ample time, no images will be allowed after the deadline has been reached!

2014 – 2015 Images of the Year
I did a little statistical survey of the End of the Year results and came up with the following:
Class A Open: ten of the twenty-three images were nature with seven of the seven fifteens also nature!
Class B Open: a little more than half (14/26) of the images were nature-related with 2 of the 4 perfect scores nature!
Class B Assigned: only eight of the twenty-eight (about 28%) were nature but two-thirds (2 out of 3) of the fifteens were nature-themed!
Class A Assigned: 11 of the 28 were nature subjects with five of the eight perfect scores from those nature images!
