The Florida Camera Club Council (FCCC), founded in 1959, is a nonprofit umbrella organization under which members of camera clubs throughout Florida can benefit by the interchange of ideas and the experience of other photographers. We offer six competitions annually (three print and three digital), open to individual members of any affiliated club.
Currently, there are around 50 independent, FCCC affiliated camera clubs throughout the state of Florida. Annual dues are the same regardless of size. Visit the Clubs page for more information. Any individual member of one of the FCCC registered camera clubs is eligible to become a member of the FCCC, free of charge. To register as a member of the FCCC, please visit Membership. You can also find information on our constitution, by-laws and FCCC officers. For information on how to find a local club in your neighborhood, please visit the Clubs.
Affiliated clubs also have additional benefits that can help with monthly meetings. We have a group of people willing to help clubs by providing the program for the night, and/or their services in judging. The FCCC holds both Digital and Print Competitions three times a year in which the top 5% are awarded a blue ribbon, the next 5% a red ribbon, the next 5% a white ribbon, and the next 10% a yellow ribbon. Images receiving a ribbon during the year in the three tri-annual competitions are entered into an end-of-year competition. In all competitions, each image is awarded a numerical value, which is the average from three individual judges. To observe previous competition results, visit the Competition Galleries.
