Print Challenges

  • Review the challenge to know whether we are calling for Print Submissions. Some Challenges are only Digital.

  • View the monthly challenge to research if there is a specific size required for your physical print. Also, pay attention if matting is required or not. If it’s not, it is just a bare print.

  • Fill out the challenge submission form and attach a digital file of your submission for us to use on the website and in social media.

  • Bring your Print Submission to the meeting. Also, remember to pick it up if it is in the drawers.

Work Pick Up

  • At each meeting we have previous work awaiting your pick up. Please pick it up! If you fail to pick it up within 30 days, your print will become Photo Club PDX’s property. By participating you agree to this.


The 2nd Tuesday of each month, please arrive by 6:30 pm to sign in. Meeting begins promptly at 7pm.

Check out Mel’s Frameshop, downtown PDX! She can help you get your image matted. She gives us GREAT discounts on our mats and framing needs. Visit Pro Photo Supply for your ink, paper and printing needs. They give us a generous discount as well! See our Community Supporter page under the Members log in for more info! Always remember to thank our sponsors when you see them!
