Wednesday, November 29            Video now available for members            

We are excited to announce that our annual In-house Digital Competition took place on Wednesday November 29th, 2023. Open to all members of Delta Photo Club, it is a great opportunity to showcase your skills and creativity, gain valuable feedback, and grow as a photographer. (To join the club visit the member sign-up form.)


This year’s in-house competition will be opened to the following three themes: Nature/Wildlife, Still Life, and Travel.


Image of living animals and plants in their natural or adoptive environment. Subjects such as amphibians, insects, marine-life, reptiles, birds, wild animals, plants, trees, fungi, algae, etc. No domestic animals, birds, or cultivated plants. ‘Hand-of-man’ elements are permitted such as fences, buildings, roads, etc…

Still Life

Image that focuses on inanimate objects or subject matters. Objects can be manmade (such as vases, books, jewelry, toys, consumer products, etc.) and natural (food, flowers, plants, rocks, etc.). Examples of still life photography include, but by no means exhaustive: tabletop / product / food / found object / conceptual / minimalist / abstract still life photography, etc.


Image that captures the essence of your adventure and experiences while traveling. Subjects include, but not limited to, landscape, streetscape, architecture, landmarks, tourist attractions, people, history, traditions, cultures, food, nature, and the story of the place.


We are very happy to announce that Kayla Stevenson will be judging our competition. Kayla is a Fellow of the Canadian Association of the Photographic Arts, Director of Membership at CAPA from 2017 to present, and is a member of and webmaster for the Langley Camera Club.
