The San Joaquin Valley Camera Club Council consists of California camera clubs from Bakersfield to Modesto.

In  2017 we voted to change the way A, AA, and AAA are assigned, and they are based on the previous year’s points, with the highest in any class, being in AAA for 2018.  This has resulted in quite a shake-up.

You can find where you are now by checking THIS page.

The first competition meeting will be February 11th, and the deadline for digital entries will be Friday, February 2nd.
