- sharing of passion in photography since 1934
CACCA stands for Chicago Area Camera Club Association. There are over 30 clubs in CACCA, where DG Camera Club is one of the member club. Here is CACCA's website:
You are invited to the CACCA pick. This is when our club members meet to select what we feel are the best prints to enter in the monthly CACCA completion. Our club can enter 4 prints in each of the 4 categories (Large Mono, Large Color, Small Mono, Small Color). The 4 prints in each category must be from 4 different photographers of our club.
This is a great opportunity to meet other members and see the ongoing critique as we try to narrow our selections down to 4.
On CACCA Pick day as listed on club website homepage
All are invited to CACCA monthly meeting from October to May, held on the 2nd Saturday of the month. Delegates meeting starts at 12:30 PM and the interclub competitions start at 1:00 PM. The meeting is held at

If you are interest in any of these individual competitions please ask Janet Schleeter and she can take your images to competition if you cannot attend.
