PDIS was co-founded in 2000 by photographers Bill Young and Mark Kirkland and is one of the oldest digital art clubs. Although the majority of members are photographers, they welcome any and all digital media and love to hear about any new digital softwares and devices. The group meets 9 months out of the year, hosting speakers, having mini workshops, and has 3 juried competitions a year. The group has had speakers such as John Paul Caponigro, John Fielder, Dan Burkholder and Glenn Randall, to name only a few.
Current president Cas Foste and chairman Bill Young were just recently interviewed by Judith McKay on Voices and Views , a radio show on KCMJ.
