Competition Info

A significant benefit of being a paid member of Loudoun Photo Club is regular judged competitions. We are fortunate to have relationships with many professional photographers who provide open critiques of each photo entry. Many members have found this to be a very effective method for learning and improving their own photographic skills. Judges assess images based on the theme and the type/level of entry in the competition and select their favorites for the award ribbons. These winning entries receive ribbons and accumulate points for the End-Of-Year Awards.

We post photos from our events to our Facebook page and our club galleries.

You must be a paid member to enter photographs into competition. Join LPC now to enter future competitions.

Dates and themes for the current competition season can be found on our competition schedule.

Please be sure to review to our current LPC Competition Rules and the LPC Competition Rules FAQ.
