Have you thought of entering print (image) competition but didn't know where to start?

Do you want to start your journey to achieve a Master Of Photography degree with PPA? AzPPA Apple Award?

Most importantly are you interested in improving your image making skills?

Image Competition is one of the best educational opportunities you will have in photography to truly improve your skills. Understanding the various levels of competitions, what the judges are looking for in an image, and how you can prepare your images to improve your score is all part of the learning process to become a better photographer and deliver quality images to your clients. 

It's not really about competition against other photographers (although there are rewards for that), but rather it's about pushing yourself and competing against yourself to always improve and understand the fundamental basics of what makes a good image. These are the same rules that applied to paintings by the Old Masters as well as today's photographer!

Bob and Connie will walk you through the entire process from image selection, preparing the image for competition, the 12 elements of a merit image, the advantages of entering image competition, and more. There will also be a demonstration on taking a RAW image, retouching it, creating a proper presentation for the image and uploading it for entry into image competition.

There will be plenty of time afterwards for Q&A. Feel free to bring 1 or 2 images with you if you would like us to help evaluate them for you.

Since this is being held at the ClickChick Photography studio, there is a limited number of seats available (20) so if you are interested please register (all attendees MUST register prior to this class).

Hope to see you there!
