Images entered are judged against 4 equally weighted elements:
Jurors use these 4 elements to deem whether an entry has met or exceeded the level of a high-quality professional image.
Images that meet or exceed will be accepted as a TPPA Approved Image.
All Approved Images will be judged in a second round of evaluation to recognize those images that are of superior level. These images will remain as approved or receive either an “Image of Distinction” or “Texcellence” designation.
All Approved Images are eligible for our Photographic Awards. Awards will be decided upon by the panel of jurors in a head-to-head voting process.
All images that receive a TPPA Seal of Approval by the jury panel will also earn a Fellowship Point for TPPA members.
The 2023 TPPA Photographic Competition features our Texcellence Award for images which are judged. “the best of the best” in Texas. The designation will be commemorated with the Texcellence Award Challenge Coin. Beautifully designed and exquisitely crafted, this coin will hold a very special place in your awards collection.
