Camera club sends out call to photographers

West Kootenay Camera Club will be accepting entries for its annual photograph salon in the new year.

Once again, the West Kootenay Camera Club (WKCC) wishes to notify photographers that it will be accepting entries for its annual photograph salon in the new year.

It is wise to begin to think about what you want to take photos of and be on the lookout.

Interesting photo categories available again this time are; wildlife, nature, human interest, creative images, flowers, plants or fruit, portraiture, architecture, travel, and open.  A special new category, added this year is “Junk”; again making 10 categories.

The club voted in this new category out of many options and we hope everyone will have fun with it in creative ways.

The competition rules and definitions of the categories will be detailed on the entry forms and available at

So get out your cameras and start looking at your surroundings with the eye of the photographer; and watch for our announcements in the spring regarding the details of this contest on the WKCC web site.
