IP-Say What? You're Getting More Time to Learn How to Impress the Judges! - PPA Today

IP-Say What? You're Getting More Time to Learn How to Impress the Judges!

by Trent Schick

As you may have already heard, PPA is extending the IPC early entry deadline until June 22, 2017 at 5pm EST, due to updates with some of our software and browsers. Nonetheless, the show will still go on! You can take advantage of this extension and now have more time to better prepare your photos for submission. 

The IPC is PPA's annual photographic competition that allows photographers to test their skills, and get advice on how to improve quality, impact, and technique through constructive competition and critiques from qualified jurors. You can get the opportunity to:
  • Improve upon your finest work 
  • Earn recognition and admiration from your peers
  • Engage with the passionate and supportive photographic competition community
  • And improve your business!
If you choose to have your images critiqued, a judge will explain how each image stacks up against the 12 elements of a winning image, and how you can improve if you don't quite match up. So, be bold and 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. 

To give you an idea of the types of things you can learn from a critique at IPC, check out this one from last year's competition. This is "Skater Dog" by Angel Sallade, critiqued by Janel Pahl, M.Photog.Cr., API. 

The judging for the International Photographic Competition will be held July 30-August 2, 2017 and you will be able to watch it all at no cost via PPA's live online streaming of the IPC! Early registration opens May 22, 2017-June 22, 2017 by 5 pm ET. Entries submitted on or after June 22 at 5 pm ET will be accepted with a late fee through July 6, 2017. Note that no entries will be accepted after July 6, 2017 by 5 pm ET

This year's IPC has some new rules. Be sure to check them out and enter your images early to beat the crowds and save some money!
