Registration for the IPC is now open! - PPA Today

Registration for the IPC is now open!

By Bethany Clark

Today is May 22, 2017, and it's the first day to enter your best images into the International Photographic Competition

The judging for PPA's annual International Photographic Competition (IPC) takes place July 30-August 2, 2017 and now it's time to submit the best images in your portfolio. IPC is an excellent opportunity to challenge yourself, so you definitely don't want to miss it! 

By competing in the IPC, you'll get the chance to elevate your work through: 

  • Getting critiques from PPA certified jurors 
  • Competing against the best in the business
  • Engaging with the photographic community 
  • Watching the judging live stream and learn from real images and real judges, in real time!

Here's a quote from PPA member Kira Derryberry, M.Photog.Cr., CPP about her IPC experience with entering her images in the IPC: 

"I was awarded my Master of Photography degree with Professional Photographers of America! Print competition is hands down one of the largest contributing factors to my growth as a photographer and artist. After competing diligently for the last 3 years, I'm proud to call myself a Master! Check that one off the list!" 

This is a great opportunity to improve your work. It's time you start entering your images! 

Important info:

  • Judging for the IPC will be held July 30-August 2, 2017 at Gwinnett Tech in Lawrenceville GA, right outside Atlanta. It's open to the public and it's free to attend, but if you can't make it in person, you have no excuse not to watch the online streaming of the entire judging process! It's one of the best ways to learn what judges are looking for in this image competition.
  • Early registration to enter your images opens May 22, 2017-June 21, 2017 by 5 pm ET
  • Entries after June 21 at 5 pm ET will be accepted with a late fee through July 6. Please note that no entries will be accepted after July 6, 2017 by 5 pm ET
  • Watch live streaming of IPC judging at July 30, 4 pm - 7 pm ET, July 31 and August 1, 8:30 am - 6 pm ET, and August 2, 8:30 am ET to finish.
