Submissions work now!

We ran over quota in our clubcomp email account. I removed that limit and you should be able to submit photos now. I'm checking to see what clogged up our account. Either it was submissions (good!) or spam (Bad!)

illustrate Oak Ridge's features.
Cash prizes, sponsored by the ORCVB, will be awarded to winners. Winners must be present at the October meeting to win.  The competition is open to everyone, including students - not just club members. No more than five entries per person allowed, and participants must allow CCOR and the City of Oak Ridge to use the images. Entries can be old or new photos, but must have been created by the person submitting them. See more details on our October Program description.

The 67th Annual Salon 2015

Note: Latest Salon News. You will be able to pay Salon Entry fees with your credit card (if you wish) at the Oct 13 CCOR meeting.

The Club’s Annual Salon is East Tennessee’s most prestigious photography competition and show. Hundreds of Print entries from both amateurs and professionals throughout East Tennessee hang in the beautiful New Hope Center during November. The show formally opens with an evening reception and gallery walk. After the Salon, winners' photos will also be shown in the American Museum of Science and Industry AMSE.

Multiple days of image reception, digital and print judging, hanging, opening reception and take-down requires a lot of manpower. Join us for a great experience.

Cumberland Trail Photography Project
CCOR Program Nov 10

The Cumberland Trail Photography Project (CTPP) is an ambitious, multi-year undertaking to thoroughly document and artistically interpret the Cumberland Trail, its natural wonders, historical sites, construction progress, and the communities and people who continue to contribute to its growing history. Documentary and artistic photography produced for the CTPP will be conserved in the Cumberland Trail Archives, and used to promote the Cumberland Trail State Scenic Trail online, in print media, and in exclusive gallery showings.
