ATTENTION:  Photography Category 

"The Tri-State Arts Association SUGGESTS a pre-screening process for artists jurying in the photography category. The club receives more artists applying in this category than any other and yet only a small percentage is accepted into the club. The TSAA wishes to change this trend by asking these artists to submit digital files to our email so that they may be reviewed by a panel, and constructive feedback be provided for a more successful jurying process. Acceptable entries will be judged on composition, color, tonal values, editing processes, and creativity. Please submit (5) JPEG images at web quality to: at least 2 weeks in advance to the jurying date." The jury dates will be in March and October of each year. The exact dates are typically posted on our Facebook page here: 


Six meetings are held each year to exchange ideas, learn from each other, plan activities for our club, etc.
