IMPORTANT NOTICE: This year the showcase is going to work towards being more professional for entries and help ease the burden on the committee who has a lot of behind the scenes work to put on the showcase. If we were to enter prints for the fair or any other showcase/salon, the deadlines are the deadlines with no exceptions. We ask for your cooperation with this.
Hutchinson home football game photo opportunity:
- The parents of the Hutchinson football team has asked the photography club if we would be interested in taking photos of the home games and play-off games. They will pay for the travel for the play-off game. They are willing to donate money to the club.
