Get the Inside Scoop on This Year’s IPC Judging (and Stream It Live)

It’s that time of the year again! The leaves are changing, the pumpkin spice lattes are steaming, and judging for the International Photographic Competition (IPC) is right around the corner. Mark your calendars for October 15 through 23 for three very special Facebook Live sessions with PPA’s very own IPC Manager Rich Newell.

In the first session, on October 15, Rich will review what’s new with the IPC this year and what you can expect. He will discuss the IPC’s new scoring system for Merit and Loan judging, the new online judging and awards selection processes and how you can stream the judging right at home. 

During the second broadcast on October 21, you’ll get to hear from the judges on a streaming “check-in” during the second broadcast. Then, don’t miss the final session on October 23, where Rich will give a recap of this year’s judging. During each of his live streams, Rich will leave time to answer any questions you might have about the process!

If you would like to get a reminder when we go live, be sure to mark yourself as “going” on our Facebook event page here.
