CMPG is a member of the Maryland Photography Alliance, which includes clubs from most parts of Maryland east of Allegheny County.
Those of you who are interested in entering the next MPA show later this year: they are expecting to nearly double the number of entries to 500-ish, and they have asked for suggestions on what categories to consider. (For the 2018 judging the categories were Landscape, Street, Iconic Maryland, and Other.) If you have an opinion to express, send email to: MPA@MDPhotoAlliance.org
The tentative date for submitting images in the 2019 show will be August 24, 2019 and the show will run Nov 1 - Dec 16, 2019 in Gaithersburg. More info will be available when all the relative details are finalized.
The current MPA Newsletter with information about other clubs' activities is available on the MPA website: https://www.mdphotoalliance.org/news.
And the non-news: Still no resolution on a reception date for the current MPA Gallery Show (the 2018 contest images) in the Annapolis State House. They are still trying to find a way to get access to the space at a time friendly for working folks. But from the attached photo it looks great!
The MPA is forming a Competition committee to work on the 2019 exhibit mentioned above. They will plan for the judging, decide on categories, arrange schedules, etc. If you are interested in volunteering to be part of the committee, send email to Steve: email@example.com
