The Quarterly Image Review is an opportunity for members to have their images evaluated by a qualified PSA judge for the purpose of growing in their skills and abilities as photographers.  Each member is allowed to submit one image each quarter for the annual Charlotte Camera Club Competition.  In addition to the feedback the judge provides, the judge will also select images to be forwarded to the annual competition.
