On October 23rd our club held a special meeting to select members’ images for this year’s Celebration of Nature competition. Here are the 6 images selected by the attendees to comprise our entry.
And we are returning to live, in-person meetings!
Join us Wednesday, September 28th from 7:00 to 9:00 PM at Yukon University, room A2204.
Everyone is welcome to sit in on this meeting. Memberships will be available at $45 if you would like to join our club. Returning members also should note that the $45 renewal fee is due for you too. You also can join or renew online by downloading, completing and emailing the fillable PDF Application Form and paying by Interac eTransfer.
After 2 years of meetings conducted solely on Zoom, this meeting will allow social time for returning members to get reacquainted and a chance for new participants to introduce yourselves and tell us about your photographic interests. Also, photos submitted by members will be projected.
Bear in mind that COVID is not over, so masks are recommended but they are not required.
Everyone is invited.
See the poster below for details.

The North Shore Challenge is a long running annual CAPA (Canadian Association for Photographic Art) Pacific Zone competition, hosted by the North Shore Photographic Society. The Whitehorse Photography Club has participated in the Challenge almost every year since sometime in the 1980’s, back when we had to mail in members’ precious original slides for judging. Of course it is all digital now, and it has been opened up to individual photographers as well as clubs. Subject matter is completely open and image editing is unrestricted, so artists can let their imaginations run wild.
Three judges score each image up to a maximum of 10 points and those numbers are added together, so the individual scores shown in the gallery are out of 30. Club entries are comprised of 6 member images. Our club scored a total of 144.5 points, placing us in a tie for 12th place out of 29 clubs that participated.
The Whitehorse Photography Club participated again in the latest Celebration of Nature competition held late in 2021. This competition for photography clubs in British Columbia and Yukon that are members of CAPA is hosted by the Lions Gate Camera Club. Images are intended to show nature in its purest form with no evidence of “the hand of man”, and only very basic post-processing is allowed.
We placed a very respectable 5th amongst 20 participating clubs, with a total score of 147 out of a possible 180 points. Each individual member’s score is out of 30 points.
