The IPC Starts This Sunday! Watch It Live! - PPA Today

The IPC Starts This Sunday! Watch It Live!

The International Photographic Competition (IPC) judging begins July 30 and EVERYONE is welcome to watch! Catch the IPC Judging at and IPC Live on

Whether you are a competitor or spectator, the IPC Judging livestream allows you to observe the way the jurors critique images and decide scores. Viewers will get the chance to see exactly what the judges are looking for, what they like and don't like, and understand the method behind the 12 Elements of a Merit Image. Also, if you entered, you might get to see your own image be judged!

All you have to do is go to, sign in on your computer with your PPA account, or simply register with your email if you're not a PPA photographer - it's free either way! Once signed in, you can select which judging room you'd like to watch (portrait, illustrative, and event and non-event album). Don't worry; you can switch between rooms at any time. While critiques won't be shown live this year, they will be hosted on the new once it is up-and-running!

Also returning this year will be the IPC Live broadcast hosted by renowned Florida wedding photographer and co-host of The Photobomb Podcast, Booray Perry, Cr.Photog., CPPfrom July 31-August 2. IPC Live will feature interviews with the judges, review of critiques, and live Q&A sessions. Check out this video to see more about what to expect on IPC Live this year:
