Enter the International Photographic Competition Today!

Have you ever asked yourself, “How do I improve my photography?” or “Where can I find constructive feedback on my photography?” If so, look no further than the International Image Competition!

There’s no better way to hone your photography skills than putting your images to the test in this exciting competition! After submitting your work to IPC, trained jurors will evaluate your image against a set of 12 elements and provide you with individualized, constructive feedback. That means everyone who submits receives tips and insights on how to improve their craft. Aside from valuable feedback from jurors, registrants can also earn merits towards a PPA degree including the Master of Photography, Photographic Craftsman, Master Artist, or Wedding Degrees.

Submit your best work today! Early registration is open until September 28, 2020. Late images will be accepted until October 6 for an additional fee. Judging for the competition will take place October 18-23, 2020.   

The 12 elements jurors use to evaluate images are:

  1. Impact
  2. Technical Excellence
  3. Creativity
  4. Style
  5. Composition
  6. Presentation
  7. Color Balance
  8. Center of Interest
  9. Lighting
  10. Subject Matter
  11. Technique
  12. Storytelling

And now, there’s even a Wedding Photography competition where you can enter your best photos from your clients’ big day. 52% of PPA members report weddings as at least part of their business, so we know you have some fantastic work to submit!
