Kingston Photographic Club

Club Calendar

CLUB CALENDAR 2022-23: Your Executive considered your comments from last year’s survey as well as an impact assessment of the current COVID situation and decided to plan this year’s activities around a “Hybrid Model.” This means that some meetings will be scheduled as “in-person meetings” while others will be scheduled as “Zoom meetings.” This approach best meets the needs of the greatest number of Club members. An Update will be coming out shortly to further explain. KPC must remain flexible to a constantly changing environment and changes in member expectations and readiness to resume in-person meetings. Consequently, some dates and events listed below may be subject to change. We will continue to keep you informed with regular Updates via email.

The September to December portion of the 2022 – 2023 Club Calendar posted below shows planned speakers, outings, and the various competition submission/critique dates. Be aware that we have only listed the “main events” for each evening, so what you see here is only part of what you will get. Please keep in mind that the success of the year depends on enthusiastic participation by our members!

** All activities relating to Station Night and the Annual Juried Exhibition are subject to COVID-19 restrictions.  Amendments to the traditional AJE may be necessary. Further details will follow via Updates.
