Last Call! Enter the Northeast District Competition by January 31 to Avoid Late Fees!

By Chris Homer

If you're in the Northeast District, be sure to enter your images for district competition by
 January 31, by 5pm ET to avoid a late fee!

Participating in your local district competition is one of the best ways to push yourself to be more. You'll learn where you stand--how your photography matches up with your peers. You'll learn about the 12 elements of a merit image, and start incorporating them into your daily photography. You'll learn what it takes to create a merit image, and if you stick with it, work your way up to the Loan Collection.

If you're ready to enter and improve your skills, visit to find out which competition you should enter. From there, you can find the entry deadlines, judging dates, and rules for each District competition. Be sure to read the rules carefully!  

If you really want to get the most from entering photographic competition, be sure to order a critique when registering! You'll get a recording of a PPA juror reviewing each element of your image and suggesting how you can improve. It's a great opportunity to grow your skills as a photographer! Check out these past critiques to see what you'll get. 

And if you're in the Northeast District, enter by January 31 to avoid the late fee! If you miss the deadline, you'll still be able to enter until February 15, but an additional fee will be required!
