Over 2,000 images were entered in PPA's first-ever digital contest--the Summer Shootout--launched in July. Featuring five categories and a grand prize winner, the contest also offered critiques from master photographers for an additional nominal fee.
"The critiques were very popular," says Dennis Craft, M.Photog.Cr.Hon.M.Photog., API, F-ASP, chairman of PPA's Photographic Exhibition Committee. "We are excited to see so many PPA members take advantage of this new opportunity to participate in a contest and learn more about competition elements and techniques from master photographers." Those who purchased critiques should receive them by mid-December.
Images entered in the Summer Shootout cannot have earned merits or a PPA seal of approval in any previous PPA or affiliate photographic competition.
The winners, who receive cash prizes, include the following:
We'd like to congratulate all our winners and say thanks to everyone who participated in the Summer Shootout.
