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.


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 đŸ™‚
