A Look Back at the District Photographic Competitions - PPA Today

A Look Back at the District Photographic Competitions

By Chris Homer

This year, PPA's District Photographic Competitions were a great success! Thank you to everyone who entered. As we look forward to kicking off the upcoming International Photographic Competition (IPC), let's check out some of the interesting stats from the District Photographic Competitions!

In the Southwest District, 971 images were entered - with 54% earning a merit. Meanwhile, in the Northeast District, of 1,000 entries, 45% earned a merit. In the Northcentral District, 709 images were entered and 47% earned a merit.

The Western District saw 760 images, with 39% earning merits, and the Southeast District rounds things out with 986 entries and 48% earning merits. That's a grand total of 4,426 entries with about 46% earning merits (all counting towards earning various photographic degrees!). 

These stats show how many understand what a big accomplishment earning a merit at the District Photographic Competitions is! So go ahead, brag about it! 

Don't forget that the judging for IPC will be held July 30-August 2, 2017 and will be streamed live! Registration to enter your images opens May 22, 2017 - June 21, 2017 by 5pm ET. Entries received June 21 after 5 pm ET will still be accepted with a late fee through July 6, 2017 by 5pm ET. Please note that no entries will be accepted after that point. Get your images ready and we'll see you at the IPC!
