PRPA Membership

Beginning with the 2013-14 year, there are two membership classes in PRPA. Each has a different fee and list of benefits. The new Individual Member is similar to the previous membership (whether joined through a club or as an individual) with nearly all of the benefits remaining. The newly created Club Member is someone who belongs to a club which has taken out a Club Membership in PRPA, and has limited benefits.

Anyone wishing to become an Individual Member of PRPA may submit their membership form and fee on their own, or through their club representative, to the PRPA Treasurer Chair. The annual membership fee is set each year at the AGM. It is $25 per person.

PRPA provides the opportunity to compete with other amateur photographers beyond your local camera club. The competitions are friendly and the judges comments provide helpful feedback. The winners are awarded certificates and ribbons. Digital image competitions are held in both fall and spring; print competitions in the spring. PRPA member clubs take turns judging the competitions; each club is requested to judge at least one competition each year.
