11/17 Creative Competition Results Posted!

Results from the second Creative competition of the year (featuring 'Creative Through Processing' images) have now been posted and can be viewed in the Competition Results section of this website. Bookmark this page in order to quickly track updated results as the competition year unfolds. A slideshow of the winning images from the 11/10 'B' competition can also be viewed here . A reminder to members that a database of all competition entries in Excel spreadsheet format is updated shortly after each competition.

'Town Hall' Meeting

CPS holds business meetings yearly in order to keep our members informed of club events and what's going on behind the scenes. We believe that the success of any organization depends on staying in touch with its membership and providing everyone an opportunity to express an opinion and understand the 'whys' behind decisions that are made. Hope to see YOU - with all your questions, opinions on Friday, January 12th at 7:30pm!

The Current Issue of the Darkroom Door is Here

The latest issue of the Award Winning! CPS Newsletter covering the first 6 months of 2017, The Darkroom Door, is now available for viewing and downloading in the Newsletter section of this website. Click here to view this and previous issues.

New Competition Tutorial Available!

To help you get the most out of your images, a new tutorial has been added to the Competitions page of this website! Sometimes using 'standard' mat sizes for print competitions is easier and less expensive but may not showcase your image to best advantage by choosing the right size and ratio for maximum impact. And while you're reading, check out the 'How to Compete' and 'How to Mat' presentations as well - all found on the Competitions page of this website. Good Luck to all competitors!

Exhibition Gallery Pages Have Been Updated!

The exhibition Gallery pages of this website have been updated and now include slideshows of all images displayed in off-site CPS Exhibitions from 2011 through this summer! Click the link to view the UPDATED Exhibition Gallery
