    Austin PPA's annual Photographic Competition is coming up on Sunday afternoon May 6. The Annual Photographic Competition is different from our monthly competitions in that three (possibly 4) qualified jurors will score prints according to the PPA’s twelve elements of a merit image, and provide a numerical score for each image. At our Annual Competition we will accept not only digital images but also prints and albums.

    Registration and submission of digital images deadline is midnight, Wednesday, May 2nd.

    Even if you are competing with physical prints, you MUST register by this deadline and SUBMIT DIGITAL VERSIONS of your physical prints and/or albums.

    Please read the Annual Competition Rules, including the specifications for digital files, carefully.

    Physical print cases will be dropped of the day of the competition, May 6th, between 10:30 am - 11:30 am. NO LATE CASES WILL BE ACCEPTED.

    The event will be kicked off with a catered lunch, followed by print judging and award presentation. You can attend this event entering prints, digital images, or just attend to observe. It’s going to be a fun and informative event so register now!
