The Boise Camera Club is an affiliate member of the Photographic Society of America (PSA) and the Columbia Council of Camera Clubs (4Cs). For more information on these two organizations and what they offer, please click on their individual links below.
The Boise Camera Club participates in both the PSA and 4Cs interclub print and electronic (projection) image competitions. Top scoring images from the Boise Camera Club’s monthly print and projection night judging are sent to PSA and/or 4Cs for this competition. The interclub competition helps members assess how their photographic work compares to other clubs and their members. The PSA and 4Cs competition year begins in October and ends in late spring when a final competition between all the winning images for that year is held.
