Critique: Bliss - PPA Today

Critique: Bliss

By Chris Homer

The Northcentral and Western Districts are currently accepting entries for PPA's District Photographic Competitions, and the Southwest District Competition will open February 22. You can even take a look at how District Photographic Competition works with the live stream of the Southeast District judging, live February 19 from 9am - 6 pm Eastern. Yes, it's free to watch!

To further encourage you to enter some of your photographic work in the District Competitions and PPA's International Photographic Competition, here's an actual critique from PPA's 2015 International Photographic Competition. This image, called "Bliss" by Gina Gardner, is critiqued by PPA International Juror Mary Fisk Taylor, M.Photog.Cr., CPP, ABI, API. It's a great way to learn! Take a look and see how entering a District Competition or the International Photographic Competition can improve your own work as a photographer through constructive feedback like you'll hear in this critique.

We hope this critique can help you get a better understanding of what the International Photographic Competition judges are looking for when scoring your images. Head to the District Competition section of PPA's website to see when your area is accepting entries, and be sure to get a critique so you can receive some personalized feedback on your works of art! And if you want to see a District Competition judging happen live, tune in to the Southeast District Photographic Competition stream at:
