Review of Competitions, Critiques & Judging
A representative of the club's Executive Board will lead a review of competitions, critiques and judging.

In this meeting we will look at various aspects of our competitions, the number of assigned topics, critiques to help educate ourselves and newer photographers as to what makes a fine image, etc.
