General Meeting & Photojournalism Photo Competition: January 20, 2015


Douglas Wade, our President, welcomed 44 members and 2 guests to our General Meeting and Competition Night with “Photojournalism” as the theme and Stuart Lynn as judge.

Stuart Lynn is President of the Southern California Council of Camera Clubs (S4C) and Competition Chair of the Coachella Valley Desert Camera Club (CVDCC).

He has been awarded the APSA honors from PSA, along with his HonS4C and DFS4C honors by S4C for his work in supporting S4C’s activities and for his photographic achievements. He has several times won Photographer of the Year and Image of the Year awards in CVDCC competitions and is an experienced competition judge. He has chaired or co-chaired several international photographic competitions recognized by the Photographic Society of America (PSA).

He was an early adopter of digital photography and combined photography with his professional background in the computing field. He has also developed many computer systems to support photography club activities and competitions, including support for international competitions.

Stuart invited everyone to participate in the COACHELLA 2015 INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION (entry deadline 2/21): Color, Monochrome, and Nature!

We had a total of 65 entries. For print entries, we had 4 Masters. For digital entries, we had 21 Novice, 3 Amateur, 23 Advanced, and 14 Masters. Congratulations to all the winners!
