To promote and develop our skills in, and appreciation for,
the beauties around us portrayed in photography
through the mutual exchange of our experience and knowledge,
and through expert help made available by the club.
KodaRoamers was formed in 1944 and is a member of both the Photographic Society of America (PSA)
and the Central Illinois Camera Clubs Association (CICCA).
KodaRoamers Camera Club is among 30 clubs that comprise one of seven PSA competition divisions. PSA has four digital image contests per year. Members are encouraged to submit up to four digital images in each contest. Judging is done at workshops usually in September, November, January and March, with the top six club images being forwarded to PSA.
The Central Illinois Camera Clubs Association (CICCA) is made up of 12 clubs in Central Illinois, Iowa and Indiana. CICCA events include the Fall Salon in which KodaRoamers may enter up to eight slides, eight digital images and eight prints which will be judged locally with the forty best images in each catagory being forwarded to CICCA.
KodaRoamers also participate in competitions with the Champaign County Camera Club and Peoria Camera Club in addition to various inter-club contests and the annual Salon in May. Initiated recently was a venture with the McLean County Arts Center which involves recurring exhibitions at the Arts Center.
