The International Photographic Competition (IPC) is where photographers from all over the world submit their best photos to see how they stack up against the 12 Elements of a Merit Image. Learn more about the IPC here: PPA.com/events/photo-competitions/ipc-international-photographic-competition-overview
A panel of jurors from across the United States selects the top images from thousands of submitted entries each year. The highest-scoring images are then selected to be part of PPA’s General Collection and its esteemed Loan Collection—the best of the best.
PPA’s Loan Collection images are published each year in the much-anticipated “Loan Collection” book and over 200 selected General Collection images are published in its sister edition, the “Showcase” book, produced by Marathon Press.
All merited and Loan images will also be on display at the IPC Exhibit at Imaging USA, held January 20-22, 2019. And the winners at the IPC are then eligible for the Grand Imaging Awards, which are also presented each year at Imaging USA.
