Projected Images
Please note these two items:
Due to the lower number of entries:
(1) the People category will now encompass all three classes. Individuals scores will be applied to the maker's accumulated totals within his or her class. (2) Nature-Other will require at least 8 or more images for it to be a standalone section. If there are 7 or fewer images, those images will be mixed in with the Nature-Bird images for that month. Visit Projected Image Competition to read these notes.

Print Competitions
Please note these two items:
1. The themes for this year's three-theme competitions will be
November - Things with Wings; February - Round; and April - Barn(s).
2. Due to a speaker's schedule,
the April competition will be on the second Monday of the month.

NECCC Conference 2019

The Conference for 2019 will be held July 12-14, 2019 at UMass Amherst. This is a great 3-day weekend full of programs, vendors and comraderie. Please view this short video from the 2016 conference NECCC Video 2016. Visit NECCC to get info and the published Bulletin.

PSA Portfolio Assessment - An Entrant's Guide
You may have read in the recent Filter that Ken Carlson recently learned that he was successful with a Gold level portfolio submission and has earned the GPSA distinction. Rick Cloran wrote the article which appears on page 65 of the Filter. The distinction that Ken has earned is a very big deal as there have only been 71 distinctions awarded worldwide and only 7 of those are on the Gold Level. Ken is the ONLY American to be recognized with the Gold distinction. Congratulations Ken!

Rick put together an Entrant's Guide to help those who may be interested in preparing and submitting a portfolio for a PSA Portfolio distinction. Visit Entrant's Guide (which is on the How to's page) to read about doing this.
