The second meeting of each month, held on the fourth Tuesday, is our Print Critique. This monthly activity is an important means for our members to receive constructive feedback.
Seasoned and respected guest judges in the photography community are invited to critique our work and provide our members with insight of ways they may improve upon their craft, which often includes both positive and constructive feedback. Ribbons are be awarded for first, second, third and honorable mention in each category.
Members can submit no more than two matted prints of their most recent work in any given month. The prints are divided in color and black/white categories and by skill level (Bronze, Silver, Gold). There are also special assignment categories with a different theme for each month and all members can enter this category with no more than one photo. All members can challenge themselves to interpret the theme photographically and receive input as to whether they pulled it off or not regardless of skill level.
At the end of the year, all members whose photos have placed either first, second or third place in any category may enter the year-end print competition. The winning photos are judged by a panel of highly respected judges in each category and the winning entries are awarded at a seperate meeting usually in December or January when all the yearly winning photos go on display in the public for one month at the Houston Central Library in downtown, Houston.
Guests are more than welcome and encouraged to visit our meetings. Come learn more about us!
