IPC Deadline Fast Approaching: July 6, 2017! - PPA Today

IPC Deadline Fast Approaching: July 6, 2017!

By Bethany Clark

As you relax over the July 4th holiday weekend, don't forget to submit your images to the International Photographic Competition (IPC)! Entries will be accepted till 5 pm ET, June 6, 2017. Visit and enter your images today!

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! 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. 

Check out this critique from this year's District Competition, to get a feel of what to expect. This is Mysti Killough's "Cupcake Kisses", critiqued by Linda Weaver.

The judging for the International Photographic Competition will be held July 30-August 2, 2017 and you will be able to watch it all for free via PPA's live online streaming of the IPC at

Note that no entries will be accepted after July 6, 2017 by 5 pm ET. Enter today!
