    I have a few questions..... This is my first year entering prints....

    1. Do I need to include a postage paid shipping label for my case to be returned back to me or is that taken care of by PPA?

    2. I notice on my paperwork where it says First Time Entrant it says NO but this is the first time I've entered any prints for competition. Should or Do I need to have this updated before I mail them off?

    Thanks in advance!!!

    The entry fee has always included the return of your print case.

    I'm not sure why there is a first time entrant space on the paperwork. There has never been any kind of special award for first time entrants in the IPC in the past. It's possible that the first time entrant spot on the paperwork may be for something that is associated with the District Judgings since the associations hosting the District judgings usually have a special award for the highest scoring print or case by a first time entrant, and the same software program is used for the District and International Judgings. I haven't heard anything about the GIA (Grand Imaging Awards) giving a first time entrant award (there was none last year). I'll have to check with someone on the PEC to make sure.

    We do have a PEC member who posts here on the forum so she would know the answer - maybe she might read this and chime in. I'll try to call someone in the morning and ask for you.

    Stay tuned...

    Rick.... Thank You!!

    I don't think I'll have a high scoring case but I feel it's time to get my feet wet & get some good honest feedback (from professionals) so I can really push myself forward and grow. I had nearly talked myself out of it because I had convinced myself it was so complicated while in fact.... it has been really easy.

    I'll be attending at least one day of judging, if anyone wants to meet up for lunch.

    Look me up - I'll show you around and we can get together for lunch. We usually eat lunch in the school cafeteria (it's not bad at all), since few have vehicles there and there aren't any restaurants within walking distance of the school.

    Did you order a critique? If you want some feedback, request a critique. After your images are judged, one of the jurors will sit down and review your images, tell you why it was accepted or not accepted and will usually give you some suggestions on how to improve it. It's worth the small additional fee.

    Mindy,

    I hope you'll be able to make it to the IPC this year. You can learn a heck of a lot from sitting there listening to the jurors. And the effect of sitting in the Loan Room for several hours is a fantastic educational experience - you'll learn not only what makes an image a merit print, but what makes an image one of the very BEST of the merit prints.

    See you in Lawrenceville in August !

    Cherie,

    I've gotten a reply regarding the First Time Entry issue.
    Your paperwork should NOT say NO for First Time Entrant.
    Send me your information (in a Private Message) so we can get it corrected for you.
    See my Private Message to you. The link to your Private Messages is in the upper right hand corner of your forum screen.
