DSCC Challenges

DSCC challenges are designed to encourage shooters to get creative, go outside your comfort zone, expand on your skills, have fun, and challenge yourself!  Challenges run for three months at a time and have two topics.  One topic focuses on people (human beauty and all our differences), and the second focuses on nature and landscapes.  Specific topics for each challenge are listed below. 

All entries must be digital and submitted through this website using the Submit Digital Entries page by the 10th of the final month of the challenge.  More information coming soon.
