Image Competition

A part of growing as a photographer is challenging yourself. Image competition is a great way to learn how to improve your images and take it to new levels.

PPGH hosts a monthly image competition where you can enter up to two images a month and have Master Photographers provide you with feedback on your image(s). Many photographers who want to test out an image before submitting it to TPPA or IPC image contests, start here.

Remember that you are also earning PPGH Fellowship points with any image with an 80 or higher score! Who knows, you could be our next master photographer and judging PPGH image competitions.
