PPA Today: Inspiration: May 2017 Archives

Inspiration: May 2017 Archives

Photographers, it's time to pull your best images and work on your competition entries for the International Photographic Competition! 

The IPC is PPA's annual photographic competition that allows photographers to test their skills, and get advice on how to improve quality, impact and technique through constructive competition and critiques from qualified jurors. Participating in PPA's photographic competitions gives you the opportunity to:

  • Improve upon your finest work 
  • Earn recognition and admiration from your peers
  • Engage with the passionate and supportive photographic competition community
  • And improve your business!
If you're smarter than average, you'll also choose to have your images critiqued, and will receive a recording from a judge with feedback on each image you've entered in the competition, explaining to you how each photo stacks up against the 12 elements of a winning image, and what you could have done better if it fell a little short! So, don't be shy! Enter your images to be critiqued by official jurors at this year's competition. Recorded critiques are a fantastic way to learn, specifically, how you can take your images to the next level.

To give you an idea of the types of things you can learn from a critique at IPC, check out this one from last year's competition. This is "Spirit of the Lake" by Karen Weatherwax, critiqued by Kathy Meek  M.Photog.Cr., CPP, API. 

 

The judging for the International Photographic Competition will be held July 30-August 3, 2017 and you will be able to watch it all via PPA's live online streaming of the IPC! Early registration opens May 22, 2017 - June 21, 2017 by 5 pm ET. Entries submitted on or after June 21 at  5 pm ET will be accepted with a late fee through July 6, 2017. No entries will be accepted after July 6, 2017 by 5 pm ET.

This year's IPC has some new rules. Be sure to check them out and enter your images early to beat the crowds and save some money!
