HDP Inter-Club Competitions
At the start of the 2011/2012 season the Competition Committee decided to expand our interests to go beyond our doors and into the world of inter-club competitions. We began with baby steps by entering the Glennie Nature International. Using images that were judged in previous nature competitions, we submitted our best ten (10) from Class A and Class B. Some members have been awarded medals while many others received Acceptances (judged in the top 25% of those submitted) over the years.
With this confidence boost, we looked into both the PSA and NECCC Inter-club Competitions. Both organizations offer several opportunities to submit images for Open and Nature categories.
In 2017 we expanded our interests to include the NECCC Inter-club Color Print Competitions!

The New England Camera Club Council has wrapped up its inter-club competitions for both pictorial and nature competitions. Hockomock Digital finished in the top of both divisions! With twenty-four clubs submitting entries, HDP took THIRD PLACE in the Pictorial Division while a very impressive FOURTH PLACE finish was our resting spot in the Nature section! Two Points separated our third place from being on top!
Jeff T.’s “Symphony of Fire” continues to amaze all who view it. The judges for this final round singled it out with a 2nd Place Award!

Carl’s “You Are Going Down!“
One of our first group ventures was into the world of the International Salon. Back in Year One, we ran a workshop for anyone interested in submitting to the Greater Lynn International Salon. The Wednesday evening session paid off well with numerous acceptances! We recently added the Ocean State International to our repertoire of salons. Sadly, in 2015 those involved in the Greater Lynn have decided to terminate future salons.
The OSI is an individual competition, sponsored by the Photographic Society of Rhode Island, where you select you best four (4) images of any genre. There is a nominal fee for entering. Details will be available as soon as we find out the deadlines and any changes.
