Benefits of Membership

  •  Having your images critiqued by experts at club meetings

  •  Attending clinics, lectures, and discussions as a learning experience

 Membership fees are $65 per payable at the start of each competition year, which starts in January.

Image Discussions and Competitions

  At our meetings everyone has an opportunity to have images anonymously displayed and critiqued.  Images may be entered digitally or as prints.  

  There are several different categories of competition for prints and digital images. You may participate in any or all of these divisions.

  Winners from our club competitions are submitted to our regional council, N4C, for competitions between member clubs in the greater Bay Area.
