All individual members of any of the New England Camera Club Council (NECCC) camera clubs are invited to participate in a fun and free Pandemic Inspired Photo Showcase!

Even though this showcase is focused on individual participants, the NECCC camera club with the greatest percentage of members participating will be recognized.

About the Showcase

This event is designed so everyone can participate from their own homes. There are five categories, Pandemic PartnersIn the Safety ZoneMealtimeGames and My Life in Black and White. You can enter photos in as many categories as you like, from just one to all five, however, you can’t enter the same photo in more than one category. All photos must have been taken in 2021 and no watermarks are allowed.

This is your chance to get creative! A category’s “meaning” is open to your interpretation! Let’s have some fun with this!

Everyone who participates and enters at least one photo will then be eligible to select their top favorite in each category. The one catch is you can’t choose your own entry.
