New England Camera Club Council (NECCC)

The New England Camera Club Council is a nonprofit umbrella group for over 60 camera clubs in the New England states of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.

Introducing Spring Pandemic Photo Showcase

This showcase is a fun opportunity to enter your photos across a variety of categories.

Get your cameras out!

All individual members of any of the New England Camera Club Council (NECCC) camera clubs are invited to participate in a fun and free Pandemic Inspired Photo Showcase! This event is designed so everyone can participate from their own homes. There are five categories and only one photo may be entered in each. You can enter photos in as many categories as you like, from just one to all five, however, you can’t enter the same photo in more than one category. All photos must have been taken in 2021.

This is your chance to get creative! A category’s “meaning” is open to your interpretation! Let’s have some fun with this!

Everyone who participates and enters at least one photo will then be eligible to select their top favorite in each category. The one catch is you can’t choose your own entry.

Even though this showcase is focused on individual participants, the NECCC camera club with the greatest percentage of members participating will be recognized. Encourage your fellow members to submit their photos too!
