Don't forget to sign up to reserve your time with one of the affiliated jurors in the PEC Mentoring booths at IUSA. Contact Jim Dingwell ASAP. I believe there are timeslots available on each day. jdingwell@ppa.com or give him a call at 866-591-9190. Hope to see you all there.

This is a great chance to get one on one help in person from one of the judges! Be sure to call ASAP.

I would have thought there would be hundreds of responses to this post! Thanks for reminding us. Hope to meet up with you and Holly again this year at some point.

This is a great oppertunity for taking 10 or so images and getting a judges opinion as to which ones are strongest. Maybe you would like ideas on cropping and artwork. Or Maybe you just want to bring some images and ask how to improve your work. Don't forget to sign up for your time slot. REMEMBER THIS IS FREE! Hope to see you there.

Keith, I can't find a link to this in the schedule of events. What days will this be offered?

Drop an email to Jdingwell@ppa.com and ask for a spot.

There are a lot of OUTSTANDING International jurors who will be volunteering their time as mentors.

How would you like to sit down and spent 20 minutes with a true "Photographic Legend" discussing how you can fine tune your own images to make them score higher?

Does this sound like a once in a lifetime opportunity?

What not everyone seems to understand is the fact that most of those who are going to be sitting in the mentor booth at the convention are true "photographic legends".

These people are the JURORS who will be judging your images at the next International Judging.

What would you pay to have a true "Photographic Legend" critique your images?

Last year, many members wanted to win that prized portfolio critique with a certain, rather well known, Australian greeting card photographer...

You can get that - and more - from a truly dedicated PPA International juror - by just asking. So why would you NOT take advantage of such an OUTSTANDING opportunity?

And if you're REALLY lucky, you might just get lucky and land a critique slot manned by our own Keith Howe (profuse begging may be needed to procure a critique spot with Keith - but he's now probably fully booked by now).

Hey - Everyone - Take advantage of this INCREDIBLE opportunity - and it's absolutely FREE - just for the asking !

Just my opinion - although my opinion may be somewhat prejudiced from being around these incredibly dedicated jurors for so long - but once you get to know them, you can't help but be prejudiced towards them and their dedication to our art, and the furthering of the progress of our profession - these people aren't doing these critiques because they have to - they're in the Mentor booths because they want to be there- so don't turn your back to a true GIFT - A gift given of their HEART.

Just my opinion
