All regular meetings of the Tacoma Photographic Society are usually held at the Pierce County Library Administration Building at 3005 112th St. East, Tacoma, WA starting at 7:00 PM. Be sure to check this list as the date, time, or location may vary.
The members meet twice a month for a friendly completion; one meeting is for the Projection Division and the other for Print Division. Members may attend one or both of these meetings where they submit up to 4 images for competition, two for judging and two for the Theme of the Month. Of the two that are judged, one is chosen for critique.
A three-judge panel rates each image with a score of 6 - 10 and those in attendance cast their vote for the Most Popular Image. All those in attendance also cast their vote for the Most Popular Image from among the theme images.
Program Night: About five nights a year we have a "Program Night". At this time we have experts conduct an educational session that may range from mounting and matting prints to photocomposition to basic digital camera operation.
