Everyone is welcome! Members and non-members are welcome to enter, however to win a trophy you must be a member of OPPA. This is a great learning opportunity whether you enter the competition, or just attend to watch the judging. With Club79, you can gather to watch the event and share experiences in a more social atmosphere, with other attendees.
Be sure to check OPPA Competition Rules. These are the same rules that PPA uses for the IPC (International Photographic Competition) and the District Competitions. This helps you test your images at a local level before entering these larger competitions.
Review the OPPA Image Category Description page to select the correct category for your submissions.Participants can enter up to 4 digital images including digital albums.
Eligibility of previously-judged images: The images that have merited in an OPPA quarterly competition are eligible to be “re-judged” at the OPPA Annual Open Image Competition. The score received at the Annual Competition will not change the score received during Quarterly Competitions nor will a second merit be given for a score over 80. The re-judged score will be used only for purposes of trophy eligibility.
The registration fee is $10/image or album (members) and $20/image or album (nonmembers)Please go to www.printcompetition.com and either create or sign into your account in order to participate in the competition.
OPPA follows PPA’s national standard of The Twelve Elements of a Merit Image for judging:
We look forward to seeing your images and showcasing the winners at our Annual Awards Banquet in December.
