PPA's District Photographic Competitions are currently accepting entries, and the International Photographic Competition (IPC) will start accepting entries on May 23. Entering your District Competition or the IPC is one of the best ways to improve your photography - especially when you choose to get your images critiqued by an official IPC juror. You'll get a recording of a judge going through each image you've entered in the photo competition, explaining how it stacks up against the 12 elements of a winning image, and what you could have done to take your image to the next level if you fell a little short!
To give you an idea of the types of things you can learn from a critique at IPC or your District Competition, check out this one from last year's competition. This is "Rain, Rain Go Away" by Addie Strozier, critiqued by Tim Kelly.
Having a judge take time to give you personal advice on how to improve a specific image is a priceless opportunity to take your images to the next level!
