Digital Photographic Competition

Four times a year, in February, May, August and November we hold our DPC (Digital Photographic Competition). Yes, we compete, but it is really a learning exercise. There is no better way to improve your work than to receive constructive criticism from knowledgeable photographers. A panel of 3 judges evaluates each image submitted into the competition and they do it live. In non-pandemic times the DPC is held at our general meeting. In these covid times we are conducting them virtually via a Zoom meeting.

Our virtual DPC is held via printcompetition.com which provides that service to many local and state affiliates across the country. Printcompetition.com charges each person competing a small yearly fee which gains access to all of the competitions run through that site including PPLAC and PPC.

PPLAC charges $15 per image (maximum of 4 images per DPC)

Here is what you need to do for the virtual DPC:

2. Before you submit images, be sure to read the rules! A few things have changed since last year!
