Print Comp From the "Other" Side

“What I learned at the PPA Affiliate Judges Workshop”.


Have you ever wondered what, exactly, those famous 12 Elements were all about?  Or why an image you absolutely love didn't merit?  Who are those Judges anyway?  

Join us as we discuss the current philosophies shared by the Print Exhibition Committee during the August 2015 Affiliate Judges Workshop.  Learn how Judges are chosen, the logic behind how Judging panels are selected, and how the process works.

We'll begin by covering the nuts and bolts of Print Competition. 

How and where to enter- the difference between Local, State and District Competition

What is a Merit- and why does it matter?

What, exactly, do those 12 Elements really mean?

We'll review the 12 Elements in depth, examining images that both do and do not exhibit those Elements.

What is the scoring process?

What is the difference between Photographic Open and Master Artist?

How do I send in a digital versus physical image?

What qualifications does it take to be a Judge?

How and why are certain Judges chosen for a panel?  

We'll discuss what “tell-tale” signs Judges are trained to look for in an image.  You will even have the opportunity to practice judging images yourself, it's not as easy as you think!  By the time you leave you will be thinking like a Judge!
