Flagpole Photographers September 2020 Press Release

The Flagpole Photographers Camera Club would like to welcome you to their 2020/2021 season, which will be held virtually at least through December. All competitions and presentations will be held online, as the Newtown Senior Center is still closed to events and classes. Information on how to join the virtual events can be found at Flagpolephotographers.com, under the Events tab.

The season opener is a program on Architecture, presented by club member Mark Ashbolt.  This will take place on Thursday, September 10th at 7:15pm. Be sure to join in on the Ice Cream Social with your own dish at home!

The competition theme for the month of September is ‘Nature’. This will take place on Thursday, September 24th at 7:15pm.  

Members compete in a different assignment each month, as well as in Open Color and Open Monochrome. And new for this season is a Monthly Challenge category, which is decided at the competition meetings for the next month. While the competition is only open to members, the public is invited to listen to critiques and learn about photography.

There is no charge to attend Flagpole Photographers Camera Club competitions. Flagpole Photographers is a local non-profit group that enables members to share their images and expertise, to learn and grow in their photography, and to enjoy the camaraderie of fellow photographers who come from diverse backgrounds, with photographic skills ranging from beginning novices to professionals.

New members are always welcome to join the club and may enter their work in monthly club competitions, participate in workshops, take field trips, get involved in community programs, and take part in annual exhibits. Dues are $35 per person or $55 for a family. Students may join at no charge. See our website FlagpolePhotographers.com for more information or contact info@flagpolephotographers.com
