January 8th is our next Program night. We will be presenting a program about how to upload images into your computer, how to develop them to their best quality and how to save and export to our VisualPursuits site. This program is geared toward new members and beginner photographers who need clarification on these steps. Sharon and Margaret will be doing this program with their Windows/Mac computers, respectively.

Bylaws Changes Starting September 2023
The Board has made a few bylaw changes you need to be aware of.
1. In regards to AI becoming so popular, the Board has added that "All photos entered in TCC must start with an original capture in a camera, either DSLR or phone. Remember, all parts of your photo must be your work. No adding other photographers' captures/work into your image.
2. A minimum of 1/3 of the total entries in each divisional contest should receive awards, and those will be moved on to the End of Year judging. If there are only 1-3 entries in a group, there should be a 1st Place awarded, with a 2nd Place and 3rd Place awarded only if those images score near as high as the 1st Place image.
3. Four entries will be allowed in the Creative Division for a limited time. Our entries for Creative are lower than the other divisions. We will allow 4 entries for now until we find out how it goes.
Dues Are Due
If you don't pay your dues by/on Oct. 23rd, you can not compete in future competitions until your dues are paid.
Please pay your dues for the 2023 - 2024 season. Make sure Cindy White gets your check at the meetings or mailed to her address.
