  • Save Money Before It’s Too Late: Enter Your Images Into IPC Today!

    Entries for the International Photographic Competition (IPC) are being accepted now. We're rapidly approaching the deadline to enter without a late fee, so save money and get your images entered by July 18 at 5 pm ET!

    Why Join IPC?

    The IPC is PPA's annual photographic competition that allows photographers to test their skills, and get advice on how to improve the quality, impact, and technique of their photography through constructive competition.  As well as critiques from qualified jurors from around the country. Participating in PPA's photographic competitions gives you the opportunity to:

    Improve upon your finest work,, earn recognition, and admiration from your peers and jurors alike. Engaging with this passionate and supportive photographic competition community will ultimately improve your business!

    If you choose to have your images critiqued, you'll get a recording of a judge going through each image you've entered in the photo competition, explaining how it stacks up against the elements of the winning image and additional feedback.
