Photos and Questions needed for the August Program 

The CCB would like to use member's photographs and/or questions during August's "Critique of Members Photos and an Extensive Question and Answer Session" program meeting.  The goal of this program is to help you understand the criteria judges look for in photographs entered into photography contests, especially upscale photo contests such as the CCB’s Annual Print Competition. 

 Please submit one photograph and/or one or more questions pertaining to judging, critiquing, or other areas of photography.  Please submit them to by Sunday July, 14th.  Include your full name in the photo’s file name and your full name in the email.  You'll receive an acknowledgement that we received your email.

The club will use several of the submitted photographs to extensively analyze and critique them during the program.  We will also answer as many questions as possible regarding the judging and critiquing process. 

 If you have questions about  how to submit, please email the CCB at  Remember, we need your photo and questions by Sunday, July 14th.
