Image Submission Rules


Print Night
At the Boise Camera Club, the second Tuesday of each month is designated Print Night. Members are invited to submit printed photographs for judging. A three member panel will evaluate the photo in three areas: Composition, Impact, and Technical aspects, and score each photograph. The judging will be followed by a critique from an experienced photographer. Critiques and scoring help both beginner and experienced photographers grow and improve their photographic skills. ‚Äč

The club uses the Epson EX9220 projector (1920 x 1200 pixels) to display images. See projector specifications at:https://epson.com/For-Work/Projectors/Portable/Pro-EX9220-Wireless-1080p%2B-WUXGA-3LCD-Projector/p/V11H846020

Every other month from November to May, the club sends images to the Photographic Society of America (PSA) Projected Image Division (PID).
