Dear MCC Members
The Montreal Camera Club is a member of the Canadian Association for Photographic Art (CAPA). This organization is comprised of close to 90 member clubs and over 1,000 individual members who share their love of photography. You are encouraged to check it out. You can compete as part of the MCC without having to join CAPA or as an individual if you are a CAPA member.
Categories for this season both for Club and Individual participation in CAPA:
Note that even if one is an individual member of CAPA, MCC members may also choose to enter an image for the club. Submission dates will be announced ahead of time for each competition.
For more information about CAPA, go to http://www.capacanada.ca

Competitions will provide members with an opportunity to see how we rank in comparison to other Canadian photography clubs as well as link our members to other photographers across Canada. Other benefits will include accessing the publication Canadian Camera online and participating in the annual photography conference.
In some competitions, RAW files, or the original JPEG files are required for verification that certain rules are adhered to. DNG files are not acceptable, according to CAPA stipulations..
Please note that the CAPA website is mostly bilingual. Rules may be found at https://capacanada.ca/capa-competitions/current-competitions-2/
Even if one is already an individual member of CAPA, we encourage you to participate in the CAPA Club competition as well. If you submit an image as an individual, that image cannot be use for the Club submissions.
For those people interested in obtaining an individual membership to CAPA, go to the website for details capacanada.ca/the-benefits-of-capa-individual-family-membership/. With an individual membership, you can enter individual competitions and receive a quarterly copy of Canadian Camera Magazine.
