We're In This Together / In It Together Relief Package:

As the photographic industry struggles in the midst of uncertainty, PPA is taking definitive steps to set the pace for future recovery by announcing a two-pronged relief package that includes eliminating two months of membership dues. The package was developed after determining that current difficult times make membership more necessary than ever.

PPA also reached into the future with a groundbreaking plan to jumpstart the photographic industry through dramatic subsidies for Imaging USA 2021 attendees. The conference is scheduled for January in Grapevine, Texas.

The combined package for the total COVID-19 assistance from PPA has reached a total of $3 million with measures to help photographers during these unprecedented times.

As part of its In It Together initiative (#inittogether), PPA’s Board of Directors approved:


1. Membership Dues Assistance:

  • PPA waived dues through the end of June for monthly installment and annual members who chose to use the PPA Dues Assistance Request Form. This form is now closed and all dues assistance applications have been processed.


2. Imaging USA Assistance Package:


  • The PPA Board of Directors also approved landmark subsidies for those who attend Imaging USA, dropping registration fees to just $59 for a full conference registration—a 73% reduction. The $59 registration fee is much less than the actual cost to produce the event.

  • $59 until November 11, 2020 (To get the $59 price, enter promo code COVID at check out)
  • $79 from November 12 through December 9, 2020
  • $99 from December 10, 2020

  • PPA Pays Part of Your Hotel:  Not content with addressing registration fees alone, PPA is taking an additional giant step by funding a plan to subsidize each attendee’s hotel stay for Imaging USA. The Association will pay $40 towards each hotel room night booked at the Gaylord Texan hotel.

          To take advantage of this subsidy, book through ImagingUSA.org/Hotels (no other link will get you PPA’s Imaging USA rate!)
