Every year the Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC) holds a national print competition for it’s members. Professionals from across the country submit up to four images into specific image catagories to be evaluated by a panel of trained judges.
Their choices are Not Accepted, Accepted, Merit, or Excellence and anything that receives and Accepted or better is inlcuded into the national “show” – now a print book instead of a traveling print show – and is eligible for a national award.
I am very proud to announce that I had one image receive an Accepted – Bird in the Bush
and one image receive a Merrit – Artistic Dreams.
Sadly, the image that one a Best in Class Award for Figure Photography in the Provincial print competition was not accepted by the national judges.
Nor was the social media favourite shown below.
Still the overall experience was definitely a success. If you would like to read a much longer post on the Subjectivity of Success, and my thoughts on the process of participating in this print competion, please read this blog post.
