Registration remains OPEN for our annual visit to Mansfield Reformatory on Saturday, June 2nd. This trip is open to EVERYONE, with separate prices for Photographers and Non-Photographers. UPDATE: We've reached our minimum commitment level and this trip WILL PROCEED!

New Competition Tutorial Available!

To help you get the most out of your images, a new tutorial has been added to the Competitions page of this website! Sometimes using 'standard' mat sizes for print competitions is easier and less expensive but may not showcase your image to best advantage by choosing the right size and ratio for maximum impact. And while you're reading, check out the 'How to Compete' and 'How to Mat' presentations as well - all found on the Competitions page of this website. Good Luck to all competitors!

Exhibition Gallery Pages Have Been Updated!

The exhibition Gallery pages of this website have been updated and now include slideshows of all images displayed in off-site CPS Exhibitions from 2011 through this summer! Click the link to view the UPDATED Exhibition Gallery
