Annual Banquet and Awards Presentation

Wednesday, Feb 1 PACC Annual Banquet and Awards Presentation


Ballroom at Michaels

Book now. Pre-event Booking Dinner price then is $55.  Day of event price is $60.

The Palo Alto Camera Club's Annual Awards Dinner is back !

It's time to mingle with members, meet new members and celebrate images that make us oooh and ahh throughout the year. 

Our Annual Awards Reception and Dinner is the premier social event of the year. This is a great time for members and guests to gather together to celebrate another year of inspiring photography.

See all the images submitted to the Annual Competition displayed on screen during the reception and dinner.

Awards will be presented for the best Digital and Print Images of 2022, along with the special Anne MacKenzie Fine Art Award and Laurie Naiman Award honoring a member for contributions to the club.

The Dinner "Early Booking" Price is $55.. Payment is in advance by PayPal (preferred) or major credit card using the button in the Right Column "Book Dinner(s) Now". If you don’t see this button, you need to log into first, then refresh this event page. NOTE: You do not need a PayPal account to pay by credit card.  

Attending the Award session without reception and dinner is free to members. You do not need to be present to win awards in the Annual Competition, but it will feel so much better to be there in person when your Award is announced.
