In addition to print and electronic intra-club competitions the Boston Camera Club participates in several inter-club competitions. The images selected from individuals are combined into the club entry. Club meetings and the Reflector informs members about these competitions and image submissions guidelines.
New England Camera Club Council (NECCC) – Print and Projected competitions
These competitions are held 3 times a year – Fall/Winter/Spring. The images selected to represent the club are usually those entered into regular club competitions.

There are 4 competitions held during the year. The Club submits 6 images into each competition. Images may be color or black and white with no restrictions on post-processing manipulations.

Begun in 2013 between the Boston Camera Club, the Newton Camera Club and the South Shore Camera Club.
This is an electronic (projected) image competition. The competition committee will compile a list of words/categories – and the photographers try to find the best image that describes that category. Each club will hold an internal competition to select the one image to represent the club in each category. In the spring the three clubs will meet and judges will select the best image in each category. It is a fun evening for all.
This competition will not be held during the 2015-2016 club year.
