Print Competition is now called PPSCV Image Competition, and accepts digital images rather than prints, saving time, expense, and making it easier to participate.
It's a great opportunity to get feedback and useful critique from professional photographers and trained judges.
Why participate in PPSCV Image Competition?
One of the PPSCV member benefits is being able to participate in image competitions similar to those provided annually at the PPA Photo Competitions, but at our local affiliate level. We encourage all members to participate and take advantage of this opportunity to sharpen your photographic skills and improve your art.
Not a PPSCV member yet?
Non-member images will be accepted and judged in a special Non-member Open category.
Each image will receive a judge's commentary and exceptional images will be noted as merit-worthy.
Sorry, awards are limited to members only.
