Information for Presenters

Thank you for sharing your art, skills, and experiences with the Peachtree Corners Photography Club.

This article presents some information to help make your presentation smooth and successful. Our Program Coordinator will assist with all the details that are not covered here.

Our Meetings

The meetings of the Peachtree Corners Photography Club are held on the 2nd Tuesday each month at 7 pm. The meeting location is the Pinckneyville Community Center on Peachtree Industrial Blvd in Berkeley Lake, GA

Setup normally is done starting at 6:30 pm.

Images are presented on a screen (provided by the center) using a video projector. The club has a small video projector for this purpose. The input is via HDMI cable (provided by the club). Presenters should bring their own computer.

Presenters may also bring their presentation on a USB thumb drive. Be sure to consult with the Meetings Coordinator so a computer will be available with the appropriate application to show the presentation. The preferred format is a PowerPoint presentation.

Featured presentations normally may take 30 to 75 minutes. Please work out the schedule with our Meetings Coordinator.

Publicity

We publicize our meetings with posts on our website, emails to our members, links to our posts in social media and other sites.

Approximately a week to 10 days prior a meeting a meeting announcement is released with full detail about the presentation.

Approximately a month prior to a meeting a newsletter is published with information about the presentation at the next meeting. We also occasionally present meeting topic information several months ahead.

Nowadays it is expected that posts and links in social sites, and elsewhere, have an accompanying image.

Presenters are asked to provide one or more images that are representative of their topic. These images should be in JPG and preferably in horizontal (landscape) format. The image should be at least 1200 pixels wide.

If an image is suitable for a text overlay (the presentation title), it may be used as the title image in our announcement or newsletter.

Journal Article (Optional)

Presenter are invited to prepare their presentation and illustrations as an article to be published in our Journal. If the article is provided for publication prior to the meeting of the presentation, the publication will be scheduled for the meeting date. Articles may also be submitted any time after the presentation.
