    Default State competitions give ...

    I'll add my two cents. State competitions do offer merits ... but they are state merits, towards state degrees, and have nothing to do with PPA merits. It is a good way to see how an image scores though. The only way you can get PPA Merits is by entering the PPA competition. ( or by entering a regional competition. If a score of 80, or more, there you send it to the next PPA competition and it automatically is an 80 there)

    Actually, Barb, there are regionall PPA Affiliate competitions. The one I'm familiar with is the Western States Print Competition which happens around May. If your image gets accepted, it receives a seal of approval which automatically qualifies the image for inclusion of the General Exhibit at Imaging USA. You must, however, send the approved print to the International Print comp, which happens in June. This is a great way, albeit expensive, to get two chances to merit an image.

    If your business depends on you, you don't own a business-you have a job. And it's the worst job in the world because you're working for a lunatic... You can't close it when you want to, because if it's closed you don't get paid. You can't leave it when you want to, because if you leave there's nobody there to do the work. You can't sell it when you want to, because who wants to buy a job?
