The second-ever Dubuque Camera Club virtual meeting on April 20, 2020, was attended via Zoom by 19 people. Several people shared images or photography-related news. If you missed this virtual meeting, a recording will be available to watch in the club’s private Facebook group for a limited time.
The club’s TREES submissions are looking great! Club members who wish to participate in this exhibit can send up to 5 images to Ron or Ken. You can also simply “reply” to any club email with your images attached. Include your member number in the filename. Prints will probably be 12×18-inch (either portrait or landscape is fine).
The TREES exhibit is scheduled to be on display at the Dubuque Museum of Art beginning September 26, 2020. As spring hits and you get outside, be aware of this theme and take more TREE PHOTOS!

Other N4C stuff
Club communications contest. The N4C has invited our club to enter the N4C website/bulletin/newsletter contests. (Those categories all blend together for me because I am a digital girl.) Unhappily, the last time this N4C competition was updated, woolly mammoths walked the earth. (Jennifer is going to have a lot of work to do!)
Last year, when I asked for the rules, I got the noise of a closed library during a pandemic. This year, when I asked for the rules, I received last year’s rules. Yes, you read that right. For that reason, I assume that last year’s judging was based on gut instinct; this year, it will be based on last year’s rules. Here they are. Read them and find out the secrets to the N4C’s magical ability to stay fashionably ahead of digital trends.
The next virtual Dubuque Camera Club meeting will be held on Monday, May 4th at 6:30 p.m. Specific details will be sent out by email before the meeting. Read your club emails for the link!
Club members: N4C competition submissions are due before the meeting. No Digital Travel submissions, because we will do virtual judging of that category at the following meeting. For more information, see the Competition page.
