Group Description

An online meeting place for members and potential members of the Des Moines Camera Club.

We will attempt to keep this group as "tidy" as possible so that you can find topics and answers quickly. If you have questions about anything, please feel free to ask.

Our camera club meets on the first and third Tuesdays from September through May. The December meeting is a holiday banquet, which includes the “Best of the Best” exhibit of all the winners of the monthly club competitions. The first meeting of the month is usually a guest speaker and the second meeting is devoted to photo competitions from club members. Check the schedule page for details.

Our club encourages all members to participate and continue learning about photography. One of the best learning tools is the monthly in-house photo competition. A panel of three judges critique and rate prints, slides and digital images submitted by club members.

The two categories are novice (new) and regular (experienced photographers). Novice members advance to the regular category by earning points in club contests. Print contests include color and black & white contests. Both traditional and digital slide contests are held.

Points are awarded as follows.
1st - 4 points
2nd - 3 points
3rd - 2 points
honorable mention - 1 point

Our club dues year runs from September through May. Annual dues (due Sept 1) are as follows:
