02-27-2012, 10:01 PM
Do you know exactly where on ppa.com it will be listed?

02-27-2012, 10:39 PM
i've been checking under competitions, then district, then past results. also been watching competitions, district, northcentral. im not sure where it will pop up. theres nothing on the wppa site where it was judged.

02-27-2012, 11:30 PM
is it just a newbie to competition thing that has me this anxious or does that continue for those who have competed before?

02-27-2012, 11:44 PM
i competed last year and went 0/4 at districts and 1/4 at international. this year i am definitely going 4/4 at international...i am determined! so, i'm new to competition, but i don't see the excitement going down each year as i set new goals for myself.

02-28-2012, 03:49 AM
I hope your excitement NEVER goes down! I have done this for......well a really long time. I still get nervous when I see one of my images spin around.
Not sure when results will be up, sorry. I hope next year you ALL try to get to the judging. That way you can see for yourself how your images do. It is some of the best education in image making too. I hope you all did well!

02-28-2012, 04:14 AM
thanks, sarah. i so want to get to one of these in person. i watched the photo pro network judging that was streamed and learned a lot from it. wish they would stream them online. i'd even pay a fee to see them.

02-28-2012, 04:23 AM
i WISH i could have made it there! however, with 5 kids and a recent trip to imaging usa, the opportunity to travel again just wasn't in the cards :( plus, my twins would have been a LITTLE ticked if i missed their 13th bday! lol! this is my 1st time competing...i have been doing the same...checking everywhere to see if anything changes! lol!

02-28-2012, 01:32 PM
Does anyone know where the results will be posted..i.e. in the "Past Competition Results" section?

02-28-2012, 03:29 PM
I just called to ask where the results would be located at, they will be on the district page and iy will not be today she said. :(

02-28-2012, 03:32 PM
thanks for checking, jessica, but that stinks. don't they know we're about goin crazy?

02-28-2012, 04:00 PM
thank you jessica!

02-28-2012, 06:33 PM
Maybe if we all post date our checks to them next competition so they can't cash the checks until the results are posted???

02-28-2012, 06:53 PM
The District results are not posted by the hosting District. The District competitions are run by the PPA Photographic Exhibition Committee (PEC), and they do not post the results until they are all cross checked and assured of their accuracy. In a situation where an 80+ score means an automatic exhibition merit, the results have to be assured correct before posting. Give them a little time to make sure that it's all right.

02-28-2012, 07:24 PM
I remember when we had to wait for print cases from district to be returned before we knew our scores. Usually took two weeks

02-28-2012, 09:43 PM
I am sure they do. It's my first time, so I just want to know so bad! I heard of an affiliate organization that texts or emails you shortly after your print goes through. Too bad we couldnt get that huh? Lol

02-29-2012, 12:26 AM
I heard of an affiliate organization that texts or emails you shortly after your print goes through.

They can't do that at a PPA District judging since the scores are not final until the end of the day. A judge can challenge a score anytime during the day and have the print brought back for review, discussion, and rescoring. A judge can, late in the day, call back an image that was judged early that morning for a challenge. Once the day of judging is ended, then the scores on the images become final. PPA does not release or publish the scores until they are final and verified.

isn't it awesome that we are all so excited about competing? i love this environment.

02-29-2012, 02:08 PM
Is it today?! :)

02-29-2012, 02:45 PM
i asked on the ppa facebook page and this was response from one hour ago.

"Results are coming soon. You'll be able to find them here: http://www.ppa.com/competitions/pastresults.php once they go up."

02-29-2012, 04:31 PM
I just received an email from the print chair from Wisconsin that said results should be posted by the end of this week or next week at the latest.

02-29-2012, 06:39 PM
Scores won't be posted until later but what about awards? Wouldn't the awards banquet have been Monday night? Do they post the awards?

02-29-2012, 08:10 PM
wow, first we were told Tuesday, then its Thursday now its possibly next week at the latest? OMG... NEXT WEEK??????????????

03-01-2012, 01:23 AM
I was there. Hmmm, let's see if I remember.... hmmm, Jessica Sell, Jessica Sell... oh yes, now I remember. Yours were disqualified!

Have a nice day.


03-01-2012, 01:26 AM
Yep, in this day and age of instant gratification this waiting thing is excruciating! :)

03-01-2012, 03:15 PM
One would think it wouldn't take this long to simply post results......

03-01-2012, 04:50 PM
if they need me to fly in and type them out, i will do that ; )

03-01-2012, 04:52 PM

This seems like a sad excuse for them not having the results up.

03-01-2012, 05:53 PM
I've decided to skip the "past results" page and I'm hoping they'll post "future results" soon... (From the repetition and redundancy department ;)

03-01-2012, 07:35 PM
Northcentral 2012 results ARE up!

03-01-2012, 08:15 PM
And the results are in.


03-02-2012, 02:19 AM
85, 79, 78, 77. This office girl's happy just to have one for four my first time out.
And it's nice to stop wondering!

03-02-2012, 02:51 AM
And congrats to Fuzzy! I think I only saw 4 100's on the list?

03-02-2012, 03:40 AM
YEEAAAAHHH! I probably wouldn't have been so excited about getting them in, but its my first time! I m pretty happy 81,81,79,78. Ok so one quick question, is there a way to learn what I need to do to improve the images? Like a judges review?

03-02-2012, 02:54 PM
COngratulations to all who entered. Merit or not, it takes a lot to put yourself out there!
