TPPA will will be hosting its Annual Image Competition online in 2021:
Spectators are invited to watch the competition live online
The deadline to enter the competition is March 24 at 7:00PM
The purpose of this competition is to allow photographers to enter photographic images to be judged against a Standard of Excellence and to assist the entrants in preparation for PPA District or International Photographic Competition.
You are invited to watch the judging as it takes place, live online.
TPPA has made some BIG changes for 2021, so stay tuned for details.
The 12 Elements of a Merit Image (For more information, go to www.ppa.com/ipc.) will be used in accessing each image and applying a final score.
Through this competition, TPPA members are also eligible for awards and TPPA Points that count toward the Associate and Full Fellowship Degrees within TPPA.
TPPA believes in the value of photographic competition to help build stronger artists and more profitable members. We take pride in using only Approved Jurors from IPCC and those who have attended the judging school at IPC who are working to become approved jurors. This makes the TPPA Photographic Competition a tough competition. Yet, it gives you the best feedback we can deliver on your images before you submit them onto district and IPC competitions.
Winning an award in Texas is a big deal and one you can be proud of. We encourage you to start preparing now to enter your images in the Annual TPPA Photographic Competition.
