The InFocus Photography Competition and Exhibition was first held in 1987 and has become one of TCAA’s most successful events. The show draws both amateur and professional entries and over the years has seen a steady increase in both the number of entries and the quality of the photographs accepted into the show.
InFocus offers both cash and merchandise as prizes for the winning photographs in both the color and black and white categories. A new category, the Excellence in Photography Award, was added a few years ago. It is named for the former resident, and nationally renowned photographer, Charles Moore.
InFocus is a program of the Tuolumne County Arts Alliance (formerly the Central Sierra Arts Council), and as such, it is a non-profit exhibition. Thanks to the show’s generous sponsor’s contributions and the show’s entry fees, InFocus is a self-sustaining event.
