Billings Camera Club
The Billings Camera Club is the oldest club of its kind in Yellowstone County. Since 1947 the BCC has supported amateur and professional photographers in their quest to create art through the capture of light.
Our goal is to build skills through education, workshops, field trips, and competitions, to create incentives to shoot subjects new to you, and to foster new friendships.
We meet monthly at 6pm on the first Tuesday of the month, from September to June, in the Billings Public Library Community Room. During the pandemic, we switched to virtual meetings using the Zoom platform. We are currently meeting in person again, but have continued to stream meetings for members unable to attend in person.
DUES this year are $15 per person

Each of the intra-club competitions will be judged in three categories: Intermediate, Advanced, and Critique Only. Your choice.
A member can enter 1 or 2 images in either Advanced or Intermediate. In addition, you can enter 1 or 2 images in Critique Only by itself or in addition to one of the other divisions. So it is possible to have 4 photos in the intra-club contests. Critique Only will be judged by the same judge as the Intermediate and Advanced divisions. Images in Critique Only should fit the same topic.
PSA PID Competitions:
The Photographic Society of America Projected Image Division inter-club competition, Open. Any subject, any processing or editing.
There are two divisions: Color and Monochrome. You may enter the same photo in both divisions (i.e., one in color and a duplicate edited to monochrome), but they need to have the same title/file name.
In order to compete, you must have a permission form on file with the PSA. See message from Fran Nunn, Secretary.
This is a competition between PSA member clubs from around the US and the world. We will vote to choose 6 images to send as our club's entry. PSA will give each image a numerical score, and each club's total score is tabulated over the year to assign its relative place within its group.
Member clubs are divided into 6 groups, A through F, according to their cumulative score over the year. Currently we are in Group B, next to highest, in 18th place out of 25.
