You Asked We Listened! We’ve heard from our members that you’d like to have interactive monthly meetings complete with guest speakers to talk about various professional development topics, and a chance to participate and connect. We’ve been working behind the scenes to make this a reality and are thrilled this month to host an amazing panel with our Fireside Chat.
Join us for an intimate Fireside Chat and listen to our stellar panel have a round table discussion about Image Competition.
We’ll talk about the nitty gritty, of why bother competing anyway?!

What do the judges look for in competition?

“I just wanted to say this was really great! I’ve entered many competitions, but I really took a lot away from this chat and it’s shifted my view on competition. Thank you Julia, Joanna, and Bryan!!”
“This was such a great chat and an eye opener. I have submitted to many competitions, including this recent one, and now I am thinking about what I can create next! Thank you all!”
