Competition Critique: Mister Mischief - PPA Today

Competition Critique: Mister Mischief

PPA's District Competitions are in full swing and the International Photographic Competition (IPC) is on its way! Entries will be accepted in the beginning of May so make sure you have your images ready.


If you're still on the fence about entering--hop on over and give it a shot! Getting over your fear and entering competition is an incredibly rewarding experience for a photographer--especially when you have your work critiqued by one of our accomplished judges. It's one of the best ways to improve your skills and gain confidence!


If you're wondering what a critique looks like, here's an example! In this video, juror Donna Goodhale, M.Photog.Cr., CPP, explains to Kevin Floyd, M.Photog.Cr., CPP, why his image, Mister Mischief, went into the Loan collection.


Another great way to learn about photographic competition is by live streaming the district competition judging. You'll be able to view the images and hear what the judges take into consideration. The Western district judging airs live this weekend, March 26-28, from Vancouver, Washington! It's free to watch, you don't even have to be a PPA member, just head to and create an account (no worries, it's free and no credit cards are required!).


Ready to enter your work in a photographic competition to learn and get recognized? Entries for the International Photographic Competition open May 26.
