Get Direct Advice Straight From Official IPC Jurors! - PPA Today

Get Direct Advice Straight From Official IPC Jurors!

By Autumn Rice 

During the International Photographic Competition (IPC), jurors give competitors the opportunity to receive advice that will improve their future output and could land their work in PPA's Loan Collection, and be honored at Imaging USA! So, don't be shy; enter your images to be critiqued by official jurors at this year's competition! Recorded critiques are a fantastic way to learn, specifically, how you can take your images to the next level. 

IPC judging will take place July 30-August 3, 2017, and while that may seem quite far away, time always flies and it's best to take some time to prepare the best images in your portfolio now. IPC is an excellent opportunity to challenge yourself, so you definitely don't want to miss it! Entries open May 22! 

Thinking about entering your images and ordering a critique? Take the plunge! You'll get the opportunity to:
• Understand what the judges expect from competitors 
• Get an idea about the current state of your photography 
• Improve your work with advice straight from jurors to help you score in next year's competition 

To give you an idea of what the judges are looking for, here's an actual critique from last year's IPC. This image is "Raising the Bar" by Cindy Crofford, CPP. It's being critiqued by Sarah Johnston, M.Photog.Cr., CPP. 

Having a judge take time to give you personal advice on how to improve a specific image is a great opportunity to expand your skills. It's time you start entering your images! 

The judging for the International Photographic Competition will be held July 30-August 3, 2017. Registration to enter your images opens May 22, 2017 - June 21, 2017 by 5pm ET. Entries received after 6/21 will be accepted with a surcharge late fee through July 6, 2017 by 5pm ET. But please note that no entries will be accepted after that point. 

This year's IPC has some new rules, so be sure to check them at And don't forget to enter your images into the International Photographic Competition early to beat the crowds and save some money. Much luck!
