A Visit to the International Print Competition - PPA Today

A Visit to the International Print Competition

PPA's International Print Competition was held this week (June 14-17) in metro Atlanta, and PPA staff took the opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at the competition process. While there, staff observed the judging process for both Merit and Loan images, got a peek at the new critique recording process and even watched the "Charge to Jurors" video that is played for all jurors at the start of the judging.

With over 4,000 entries to judge, the jurors stayed very busy during our visit, but we did get a chance to chat with them during their breaks. We were all impressed by the high quality of images being judged and the intensity of the jurors as they evaluated each image.

Congratulations to everyone who "merited" or "went loan" this year! The judging will wrap up today, but the final list of accepted prints will not be available until all of the data is input and verified. Watch for a post here, or check the Competitions section of in early July.

Here are a few shots from our trip:
