Christmas Party & Year End Awards

Greetings to the Club…

 

Our annual Christmas covered-dish dinner and year-end awards ceremony will be held on Wednesday, December 19th, at 6:30pm.  Come early if you can to help set up.  We will have dinner and the awards in the same room this year instead of two different areas.  The dining room area is at the North Annex of the Arts Center just past our normal meeting area.  There will be folks wandering around if you are unfamiliar with the spot. 

December 5th Meeting

The Catawba Valley Camera Club will meet on Wednesday, December 5th at 7:30 pm.  The meeting topic will be a critique night.  Bring up to 10 images (slides/digital/prints) for group critique. 

Photo Gallery for Members

I’m working on setting up a photo gallery for members where each club member can upload photos and create their own online photo albums.  I need 3 or 4 people who are interested in having this functionality to do some testing on the site.  If you are interested in working on this project with me, please let me know…

Meeting Notice

The Catawba Valley Camera Club will meet on Wednesday, November 14 at 7:30pm.  This meeting will consist of our annual field trip photo competition.  Please bring up to three prints from any club sanctioned field trip this year for this competition.

**NOTICES**

This meeting is the deadline for bringing in your year’s winning images for the year-end judging.  Please make sure that your name and group are on the images or they won’t make it into the judging.

For those of you who send in digital versions of your print winners for use on the website:

1. Images MUST be formatted the same way as you would if being entered in a digital projection competition.  This includes the proper size and file naming.

2. Images MUST be submitted to me by midnight on Friday following the meeting to get included on the website.

Over the last few print competitions, I have accepted late images and images not in the proper format.  We need to get this as streamlined as possible.

Thanks 🙂
