Starting January 8, 2009, Competition meetings are normally held on the 2nd Thursday of each month. (The December meeting is the Annual Banquet and Awards Presentation. Other exceptions may occur so please verify on meetings or news & activities page.)
The monthly competition will now include six categories in two divisions: projected digital files (color, B&W or monochromatic, and creative) and prints (color, B&W or monochromatic and creative). Awards are given based on popular vote and judge selection. The guest judge also provides critique on the entries. Follow this link for competition rules.
Points earned each month accumulate toward annual awards. Monthly entries are eligible for the year-end competition.
Programs & Classes
Program meetings are demonstrations and/or workshops on a variety of photo techniques. Classes are usually focused on using Photoshop and other photo software.

Photo Swap Meet
The club hosts at least one Photographic SwapMeet each year. As well as a wide selection of photographic items for sale, there will be other special demonstrations or exhibitions.
Special Events & Exhibitions
Another goal is to increase the visibility of the club and its talented members through Photographic Exhibitions. Over the past several years, exhibits were held at Westminster City Hall, several area galleries, and local libraries.
Every year from 2000-2005 included a Kids with Camera Program. In cooperation with a community youth program, members escorted future photographers around their neighborhood to take pictures with disposable cameras. One photo from each kid was displayed at a Denver School or Branch Library.
