The Maryland Photography Alliance (MPA) is an association of Maryland-based photography clubs dedicated to:
Enhancing photography as a hobby.
Making photographers aware of meetings and group-shooting opportunities.
Providing mutual assistance to member clubs through pooling resources.
MPA conducts one competition, one gallery show, and one all-day seminar with a nationally known photographer every year.
MPA clubs promote education, provide information, create inspiration, and afford an opportunity for individual growth to those interested in photography.
