ACCC - Competitions
Competition and the Exhibition of the entries is an important part of ACCC Roundups in the spring and the fall. These competitions provide club members the chance to compete with members of all the ACCC member clubs. The competition typically results in an exhibition of around 400 prints displayed at the Roundup, and approximately 400 digital images shown at the Roundup in a slide show.
The guidelines for how to compete in the Roundup are contained in documents you can access by clicking the links below.
