An OPPA Degree is a way to show that you are dedicated to your photography and have demonstrated proficiency and service in our industry. Earning a degree shows to both your peers and your clients that you have persevered in your photographic growth and earned the recognition that goes along with it. If you've seen folks at OPPA events wearing ribbons and medals around their necks: those are the symbols of our degrees.
OPPA Degrees are based on earning OPPA Points. There are three general categories of points: Exhibition (Competition), Service, and Speaking.
You can view your current Exhibition (Competition), Speaking, and Service Point totals near the bottom of your member profile (click your name at the top of the page when logged into this website). If you have any questions, please contact OPPA Awards Chair, Aaron Hockley.
