District Photographic Competition Wrap Up - PPA Today

District Photographic Competition Wrap Up

By Sarah Ackerman

A great place to start your photographic competition journey is with the District Competitions that happen at the beginning of each year. They are great reasons to get your images in competition shape before the International Photographic Competition (IPC) opens in May. 

This year there was a record breaking number of images and critiques, up 366 and 468 respectively, that entered the five districts

Top scoring cases for the Photography Open went to:
Southwest:
David Edmonson, M.Photog.Cr.
North Central:
Ben Shirk, M.Photog.M.Artist.Cr.
Western:
Kristi Elias, M.Photog.
Northeast: 
Kari Douma,  M.Photog.Cr., CPP
Southeast: 
Joe Campanellie, M.Photog.Cr., CPP, F-ASP

Top scoring cases in the Artistic category went to:
Southwest: 
Kimberly Smith, M.Photog.M.Artist.Cr., CPP
North Central:
Ben Shirk, M.Photog.M.Artist.Cr.
Western: 
Kristi Elias, M.Photog.
Northeast:
James Hoover, M.Photog., CPP
Southeast:

Congratulations to all who entered into the District Competitions to be more! Remember, if your images earned a Seal of Approval at a District Competition, they still need to be entered into the IPC to receive a merit. 

Entries can be submitted to the IPC starting May 23. Brush up on the rules or mark your calendars for IPC Live, our live broadcast of the judging of the IPC August 1-4 at Gwinnett Technical College! Take the leap and Be More Creative!
