Art at the Market (PoCo Craft Market)

Come prepared with ideas for discussion Tuesday, June 14th.

On Thursday July 7th the Port Coquitlam Farmers Market will be holding a special event within the market called the Art at the Market.

TriCity Photography Club has been invited to join.
It would be good exposure for the club.
We have a small “TriCity Photography Club” banner we can use.
Members could bring photographs to display and answer any questions about photography and the club.
Members could also sell photographs if they have a method to receive payment. (Cash, Paypal, eTransfer)
Customers could order from the photos on display and have them customised for later delivery. (i.e. Size, medium - canvas, aluminum or various paper types)
We would need a commitment from those interested in presenting. It is free to the members but there is some cost to the club.

Opportunity for Club Entries for CAPA Competition
Everyone is gearing up for summer!  As you are out and about (no doubt with camera in hand) think about the opportunity of entering the CAPA Pacific Zone Open Theme photo competition. 
This is a CAPA competition specific to our Canadian zone and is open to individual CAPA members as well as clubs that are CAPA members.  In other words, you are automatically a CAPA club member through the TriCity Photo Club therefore you can enter the contest through the club. 
A club submission is restricted to 6 images from different photographers.  Individual competitors (under a personal CAPA membership) can submit up to 3 images.  The process for choosing which images selected to advance to the competition by the club will be the same as that employed for image selection to the NSPS and Lions Gate competitions. 
The deadline for submissions to CAPA is October 1st so the selection process will happen in September.  Right now, this is a notification to keep the competition in mind.  We will follow up with details later in the summer.
In the meantime, if you would like more information regarding CAPA competitions you can go to the CAPA website at  You do not have to be a member to access the site.  Select ‘competitions’ from the top of the page.  Select ‘current competitions’ from the drop down menu.  On that page you will find detailed information on editing criteria/image size/image titles and judging criteria.
Have a wonderful summer and happy shooting!!!
Please visit the CAPA area of our Members Only section on our website to access the latest CAPA magazine and CAPA Newsletter.  Please see the updated information on entering CAPA competitions as well.

Cheers, TCPC Executive Committee
