Image Discussions and Competitions
At our meetings everyone has an opportunity to have images anonymously displayed and critiqued. The entire group may participate in this discussion to learn what is good about each image and what could be improved and how that would be accomplished.
We also have competitions to test our skill levels. Images may be prints or digital images. There are several different categories or divisions 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.
