Welcome to Seattle Photographic Society
We are currently only meeting over Zoom. If you wish to join us as a guest, go to our Meetup page to RSVP. The day before the meeting you will receive an email with a Zoom link for the meeting. Visitors are always welcome.
We are a friendly group of supportive amateur and professional photographers. Every month we hold competitions with judging and educational critique. Other types of meetings can include in-depth educational events with guest speakers, sharing our images with each other in small groups, and field trips. Our annual events include a Year-End Competition, an Awards catered dinner, and a Holiday Potluck. Check out our Meeting Schedule to see what events are coming up.
We welcome all guests and look forward to you joining us.
NEW MEETING TIME - 7pm - While we are still meeting remotely, we will be starting at 7pm instead of 7:30. Once in-person meetings resume, the start time will be reconsidered.
New rules regarding Assignment submissions - The rules around Assignments for Projected Meetings are being simplified. For the December 7th meeting you will see 4 Competitions that you can submit images into - our regular Creative, Nature, and Open Competitions, and also a 4th Competition of - Assignment Toys Open. You may enter the usual 2 images total, spread over these Competitions as you chose. (You may now enter 2 Assignment images if you wish, for example, or up to 2 images in Open without needing to submit an Assignment image.) Next competition year we may experiment with having an Assignment every month.
Competition Submission will be opened earlier - Starting with the January Competitions, you will be able to submit images into the next month's competition the day after our Projected Night Meeting is held. (January's Competitions will be open for submission beginning on Wednesday, December 8th.)
December Education Night (Small Groups) - Our December Education Night will be on the 2nd Tuesday of December instead of our usual 3rd Tuesday to accommodate people who will be out of town for the holidays. Remember this meeting will start at 7pm.
We will meet in groups of 6-8 people to share images. There will be no judging or commentary, just a brief discussion about the image by the maker and comments by other people in the group. Small Groups are a great way to get to know your fellow club members better.
For this month submit up to a total of 3 images -
- Someone or something you love
- Lights (holiday or otherwise)
- Aspirational - something you are looking forward to in the year ahead
If you have a speaker you would like to recommend for an Education Night, email our Education Committee.
