Digital Photographic Competition

Four times a year, in February, May, August and November we hold our DPC (Digital Photographic Competition). Yes, we compete, but it is really a learning exercise. There is no better way to improve your work than to receive constructive criticism from knowledgeable photographers. A panel of 3 judges evaluates each image submitted into the competition and they do it live. In non-pandemic times the DPC is held at our general meeting. In these covid times we are conducting them virtually via a Zoom meeting.
