The Harbour City Photography Club is hosting Photo Salon again this year.  Your image(s) need to be submitted by February 15th/2020.

Photo Salon is part of a worldwide system of recognized forums to showcase the commitment, achievement and outstanding work of photographers in the region. It is open to club and non-club members on Vancouver Island. A panel of judges adjudicates the digital entries and, if accepted, the photographs are printed, hung and evaluated for 1st -, 2nd -, and 3rd -place recognition. There is also a ‘People’s Choice’ award. Photo Salon is hosted by the Harbour City Photography Club in Nanaimo and is endorsed by the Canadian Association for Photographic Art (CAPA), the prime photography group in Canada.

Full details for image sizes and print sizes, dates and timeline are detailed in INVITATION-INFORMATION 2020.
