Sorry to say, below is the upcoming Dubuque Camera Club meeting calendar. Along with the rest of the world, we are trying to keep our family and loved ones safe and healthy. In-person meetings are suspended (for now).

Virtual judging is coming up!
If you’ve been reading the N4C posts and emails (or the N4C Bulletin), you’ll already know they have decided to (1) cancel the spring mini-convention, but (2) go head and hold the April and May contests.
What does it mean for club members? You can submit your photos to N4C competition, just like always! If you have questions, be sure to check the Competition page . As always, images may be up to 1920px on the longest side, file size no more than 750KB. Send in your April submissions by Monday, April 6th.
Because of the pandemic crisis, our club may need to come up with a process for online judging. Our club will probably need to judge DT virtually on May 18, 2020. (Details about virtual judging will be sent to club members by email).
Our club has received Digital Nature (DN) returns for March 2020 N4C competition submissions. Congratulations to these photographers:
Get ready for club exhibits
One of the perks of Dubuque Camera Club membership is being able to participate in club exhibits. We are preparing for a 2020 exhibit at the Dubuque Museum of Art.
TREES at DuMA. This year’s Dubuque Camera Club exhibit at the Dubuque Museum of Art will have a TREE theme. Be thinking about trees as you’re out and about this spring. Our club photographers have already submitted some beautiful preliminary images. Take a look at the club’s pre-Tree gallery!!!
Club members: If you would like to participate in this year’s DuMA exhibit, send up to 5 preliminary images to Ron or Ken. Make sure that your member number is in the filename.
Smokestack exhibit. Sadly, the Smokestack is one of the many businesses that closed when the Iowa governor declared a State of Public Health Disaster Emergency. The club’s exhibit there is postponed indefinitely. We hope to reschedule when the world returns.
Other N4C news: The N4C has had some openings on their board of directors. Our own Jennifer Tigges is running for a new position. Yay!!!

General Bob has had success with his photo of “Three Sisters,” a mountain in Canada. You may remember this image, because a version of this beautiful image was in the club’s 2019 Reflections show at the Dubuque Museum of Art. Congratulations to General Bob for the publication of “Three Sisters” in Landscape Photography Magazine.
