Hands_On_Classes_3-Days-Of.jpgAre you a photographer who wants to attend Imaging USA but isn't so sure if it's worth the expense?


  1. It's worth it
  2. If you're a new member, your first year at Imaging USA is free, and
  3. For 4 lucky photographers, there is now another way...

That's because PPA is dishing out 4 Imaging USA Kickstart Scholarships!

Four lucky PPA photographers will win the opportunity to soak in all fresh new ideas available at Imaging USA. You'll get full access to every session, all of the after parties and events and can freely browse the massive tradeshow floor. The scholarship also includes your choice of a pre-convention class that happens Thursday, Friday or Saturday leading up to the show.

No matter where you are in your career, there's a class for you. Pre-convention classes range from multiple day workshops, like PPA's Business Workshop or the Certification Preparation Class, to full day classes on topics like using Lightroom, learning Corel Painter, getting your images ready for the International Photographic Competition, and more!

Plus, there are also Hands-On pre-convention classes, where you'll go out on a photo shoot with the instructor and practice the skills you are taught with your camera! These classes are shorter, so you can attend multiple classes during the day and get all the hands-on practice you want.

The scholarship includes: Choice of pre-convention classes and a full Imaging USA registration all for FREE. Travel, meals, and lodging are not included.Visit for more information on hotels, travel and more.

Find the complete list of pre-convention classes on the Programs By Day page and see which one will help you kick-start your Imaging USA experience.

To apply for the scholarship, you must be an active PPA member and you can't have previously received an Imaging USA Kickstart Scholarship. Applications are due by November 6, 2015. Recipients will be announced November 25.
