How can we find out about last years results of digital entries? I sent in 3 digital along with the one print, and have no idea if they were even seen. Is that online somewhere?

Hi, Mark - Here is the list of 2012 IPC winners. It says "List of Accepted Prints", but it includes digital entries.

I'm looking for entries that were not accepted. I entered 3 digital image at IPC along with one print that had scored at SEPPA. I got nothing showing the digital were even judged. I talked with someone at PPA today that is going to research it for me. In the past, you would get a "NA" for Not Accepted. Now unless you get a critique you get no acknowledgement of the entry unless it is accepted.

I suggested a statement of entries being sent back to each entrant with their results.

It is not listed on the results if it does not merit. I agree. There should be something in the way of an email that states the images were not accepted.

I beleive that they publish only the names of the accepted entries so that if an entrant were to have none of his images accepted, it would be bad for the entrant's business if a potential client of that entrant were to go to the PPA website and pull the list of entries only to find that the photographer they were considering using had all four of his entries scored as not accepted. If they did not find the photographers name on the list, it would not indicate that he had even entered that year. So it's better for unsuccessful entrants to have only the accepted entries listed.

I agree with Cheri that there should be a letter or email sent out to the entrants with their scores, and I will pass that suggestion along to our PEC Administrator and PEC Chair.

Am I not remembering correctly that I saw at one time the "NA" or "DQ" designation?

I don't have the scores from before 2008, but since then, the only thing posted in the report is G, GB, and L. There are no NA's listed.
