Monthly Photo Submission Requirements:

We have two categories, Club Theme & PSA.

A maximum of 2 images may be submitted each month, ONE  Theme and ONE  PSA.

 

Editing may be done as desired and the only rule that applies is that if you create a composite image, all images used in the composite must have been taken by you. We also ask that, at the club meeting, members briefly explain editing techniques they used to help other members grow in their photographic journey.

NOTE: Photo submission SIZE specifications for Club Theme & PSA are now the SAME

NOTE: Photo naming conventions differ slightly between Club Theme & PSA submissions
