Minneapolis Photographic Society is the only Twin Cities club devoted exclusively to print photography. We are members of the Twin Cities Area Council of Camera Clubs. Through monthly photo competitions and programs, MPS members fine-tune their skills and enjoy fun and friendship with other photography enthusiasts.
We meet at Minneapolis Television Network (MTN) Studios. The address is 820 18th Ave NE, Minneapolis. Directions: The entrance to MTN studios is located approximately one block west of Central Avenue in NE Minneapolis. Look for the MTN sign at the door and giant Legos east of the entrance. Parking is on the street across from the building, or in the lot next to and behind the building. Do not let the fence and barbed wire deter you from entering the building (it is an architectural relic from the days when it was the Minneapolis Arsenal).
General salon meetings are held September through May, followed by a final awards banquet in June where the “best-of-the-best” year end prizes are awarded. Our meetings are on the first Monday of the month (with slight variances for holidays), starting at 7:00pm and ending no later than 9:00pm. If competing in the salon, please arrive 15-30 minutes early to enter your image(s). Our meetings include an educational or entertaining program followed by the photo competition judged by an outside expert.
Visitors are welcome at our meetings, but please note that you must be a member to enter our competitions.
