Watch this Critique and See How IPC can Help You Improve Your Skills.

IPC judging begins July 30! As you get ready to stream the competition's judging, you can start to think of ways to step up your game for next year's competition. 

The PPA annual competition is a great way not only to test, but also enhance your photography skills. This educational opportunity gets even better if you choose to have your images critiqued by one of PPA's jurors. The judges will explain how each of your images, specifically, stacks up against the 12 elements of a winning photograph, and any possible ways you can improve to obtain a higher score.

Check out this critique from last year to get a feel of what to expect. This is Colleen Udell's “Gift Wrapped” being critiqued by IPC Judge Gregory Daniel M.Photog.Cr., F-ASP.
