Enter the International Photographic Competition Before Prices Increase! - PPA Today

Enter the International Photographic Competition Before Prices Increase!

Be sure to enter your images to the International Photographic Competition (IPC) by June 22 by 5pm EST for the lowest price! 

If you've never entered the IPC before, you'll be surprised to learn that past entrants say entering the competition is one of the best ways to improve your skills as a photographer. That's because images are judged by PPA jurors based on the 12 Elements of a Merit Image. The 12 Elements define what makes an excellent, professional image, so learning how to create while keeping these elements in mind is sure to help you improve as a photographer! And remember, if you aren't continuously improving your skills - you're falling behind other photographers! 

The feedback you can get on the images you enter to the IPC becomes even more valuable if you choose to order critiques on your entries. You'll receive a recording of an IPC Judge giving you dedicated feedback and explaining to you how the elements are present and impact YOUR image. Check out a critique from last year's competition. 

Once you've entered your images, make plans to attend the judging July 31- August 4, 2016 at Gwinnett Technical College in Lawrenceville, GA. Judging is open to the public and free to attend, so come and adsorb all the judges' comments on the entries - you never know what you might learn! And if you can't attend the judging in-person, you can also stream it all online via

So, get those images entered by June 22 by 5pm EST for the lowest price! Late registration extends until July 7, but you'll have to pay an additional fee. Enter today and see how competition can help you Be More Skillful!
