You’ve Got Your Imaging USA All-Access Pass - Here are Additional Events for you to Consider (Yes, Some Are Free!)

Imaging USA 2018 in Nashville is right around the corner, January 14-16. Your 3-day All-Access Pass to Imaging USA gets you into tons of incredible photography classes, but if


 you're looking for even more opportunities, you have some nifty options!  

Start exploring Pre-Convention programs! They are held on the front-end of Imaging USA and range from multi-day workshops to half-day and all-day classes on topics like post-processing workflow, fashion portraiture, the certification process, the business of senior photography, and more!


If you're wondering about entering in the International Photographic Competition, or have questions about what images to select, sign up for The Photo Competition Mentor Program. You'll learn what makes an image award-winning material and what the PPA judges look for in competition. PPA-approved jurors will sit down with you in 15 minute sessions and look at your images, to give suggestions on creating images for competition.

During pre-con you can also learn about an amazing volunteering organization that makes a heartfelt contribution for families going through incredibly painful times. “Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep” photographers capture portraits for families who have a terminally ill child, creating photos that will be cherished by the family forever. Learn how you can get involved during this pre-con program. 

Finally, on Saturday, check out PPA Charities' 20th Anniversary at the Roaring 20s Casino Night! VIP & Awards Reception from 6:30-8pm ($100/person); General Admission 8-10pm (only $25/person). PPA Charities will also host the Super Hero 5K Fun Run on Sunday morning at 6:15am!
