Welcome to a special International Photographic Competition (IPC) edition of our weekly photography blog round-up! Hopefully many of you tuned in to watch the IPC judging and the brand-new #IPCLive broadcast. Congratulations to those who earned merits or entered the prestigious Loan Collection! The results are online now! A full post dissecting the stats will come Monday.
It was great to see all the conversations and posts on the web from the event. A few of our favorites are below.
Certified competition lover Christine Walsh-Newton , M.Photog.Cr., CPP, is here with some advice on what to do now that the competition is over. Mainly, don't post your images to social media (yet)! Read the blog to see what else you should be doing.
Host Mark Oehler drops the print comp 101 in this podcast dedicated to IPC! How cool is that?! If you have more time, the whole series is great for further background info, with interviews with some of the most successful competitors in recent years.
And with that let's let "Dancing" Jennifer Fermaint, CPP kick off our social round-up with a hilarious video post!
Kira Derryberry had some trouble prioritizing...
If you missed it, Booray called out PPA CEO David Trust for taking a selfie in the background during the IPC Live broadcast Wednesday. This is the
cover uppic in question.
Julia Kelleher celebrating 4 for 4 on a camping trip!
Everyone's favorite magazine, Professional Photographer, got exclusive access to the broadcast.
Rob Behm and a potential future competitor!
And Gary Hughes with the perfect meme to close things out.
And that's it from this special IPC round-up! Check back in Monday for the blog on IPC results and next Friday for the return of our normal photography blog round-up. Until next week!
