Hi Jackie; I'd suggest that you first find the web site for the prof. photog. assn. for Illinois. Then, see what regional that Illinois is part of. ( for example, I'm in Pennsylvania and we are part of Mid-East Regional) I think this is the web site for Illinois group ... http://www.appillinois.org/ . You might also see if your state has smaller photog. groups too. Here is Pa. there are about 4 or 5 and all have print competitions. Keep in mind that only blue ribbons from PPA or a regional count towards Master. ( if you get an 80 at a regional you just send it to PPA competition and it automatically get an 80 there)

I hope this helps. D. Craig Flory PPA Certified

P.S. ... we do allow out of state non-members in our state competitions ... in April. www.ppaofpa.org OR www.ppofpa.org

Hi Jackie,

The APPI Fall convention will be in Peoris 11/6 - 11/7. They will have a print competition at that event. If you have any questions regarding the convention you can contact Ken Zink 1-800-838-APPI or @ sphoto@ocslink.com.

If you have any questions about entering drop me a line, I would be happy to try to help. The first time is usually the hardest :D It is so worth the effort. I have found print competition to be invaluable to my photographic education.

Don Mitchell midsierra@d-web.com can give you information on the 2006 print competition. I have volunteered as a print handler in San Diego for the past 3 years. It’s a great experience! Room and meals are included for volunteers.
