The TPPA Image Competition is designed to further both the technical craft and art of photography, in all its forms.

Images entered are judged against 4 equally weighted elements:
– Impact
-Technical Excellence

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.

Texas 10

The Texas 10 is a series of photographic workshops that will be held throughout the state in January, February and March.

Workshops are taught by volunteer TPPA Members who are willing to share and promote the success of all photographers throughout Texas (and beyond).

These one and two-day workshops are offered locally to photographers of all skill levels.  You do not have to be a member of TPPA to register for Texas 10 workshops.

Because many of the workshops are hosted in the photographer’s own studio, most of the workshops have a very limited capacity which also ensures everyone has an opportunity to work with the instructor and to ask questions.

Take one workshop or take them all!  Secure your spot today in any of the Texas 10 workshops.

The “Texas 10” workshops are proud to be a part of the PPA Continuing Education System.  PPA Members attending “Texas 10” workshops will earn one education merit for each workshop completed.  PPA members earn merits to apply towards various degrees from PPA including the PPA Masters Degree and the PPA Craftsman Degree.  To learn more about all of the benefits of PPA including the merits and degrees program, visit
