Earn Merits by Entering IPC or Attending a Workshop!

The 2021 International Photographic Competition (IPC) and the 2021 PPA Fall Photography Workshops are just around the corner! Have you registered yet?

International Photographic Competition 

If you’ve been considering earning a PPA Degree or are looking for constructive criticism on your photography, IPC is the event for you! Entering IPC will connect you with other talented PPA members that will give you feedback on your images, as well as enable you to earn merits towards one of the four PPA Degrees. Images entered into IPC will be judged within one of the following competition categories:  

  • Photographic Competition: an evaluation of the technical aspects of your photography, 
  • Artist Competition: evaluates your artistry skills as relates to your images, &
  • Wedding Competition (our newest competition): evaluates your technique in the highly competitive field of wedding photography

Fall Photography Workshops 

Registration is also open for the 2021 Fall Photography Workshops, which will be held throughout the country during September. This year, there are options for both virtual and in-person workshops, depending on the course. Photography Workshops are instructed by PPA members just like you, who have business, photography, and competition knowledge to share, and are PPA merited events, which means these workshops will count towards your PPA Degree.

What are you waiting for!? Register today and take the next step on your PPA Degree Journey!
