Image Competition

 Registration: OPENS May 1 @ 6am / *EXTENDED* CLOSES May 12 @ 6am

Image Competition provides an amazing opportunity to hone and share the photographic skills that make up your art. Competition is not always about winning. The very nature of competing will drive you to improve all the skills needed to create superior work. Winning is just another perk of competition, the real reward comes from growing your skills.

Notice of changes

As we dive into 2019, our goal is to open participation for some of our events through the use of live webinars, which includes transitioning our Image Competitions to a fully online experience using the IEPPV YouTube channel.

By making this change, we hope to bring in the very best judges from throughout the US and extend the learning opportunity to those who could not previously attend in-person.

“The best part about being a photographer, is that every day is different. I can find beauty in most anything. I might choose a garden, wooded area, park or sometimes an urban alley or an industrial area like a junkyard. Anything can be amazing, if you light it right.”
