DSCC Local Competitions

Local Competition Information:

The DSCC holds 7 local competitions each year during our regularly scheduled meetings. No competitions are held during December, May (when we hold a yearly local print and slide show), and June. The categories for the next year are announced at the banquet in June. Members have from that time until the appropriate month to take their photos.

Each member may submit two print and two digital images. Digital images are submitted to the club through this website.  Digital images are to follow the N4C format guidelines (1920 pixels along the long side)

Prints can be any size and should be brought the night of the meeting.

Both Digital and Print pictures will be scored on Impact, Technique, and Composition.SUBMISSION DETAILS
