How do I enter in the Club Event?

At the club event there will be one judge from a different Club in South Africa that will judge the entered photographs and give educational feedback on how to improve your photography skills.

At NPC we use a Point System that helps you progress in the club and improve your photography skills. The point system works on a star based system. Each member starts at 1 Star and can climb the ladder up to 5 Star. each star category has a certain criteria on how to move on to the next star category. These criteria is a combination of Club points that get's awarded to you during club evenings, and Salon points that get's awarded to you when entering Salons.
