TPPA supports the idea of setting the stage early on for participation in TPPA State Image Competition and
the International Photographic Competition through PPA. We believe these two important steps provide an
excellent opportunity to develop the strength, creativity and quality of your own images.

Begin with an understanding of the benefit of participation in image competition and the differences in the
various competitions and the requirements to enter images. Also, an understanding of the judging processes
and the scoring methods of various competitions is included. Also includes a study of the “12 Elements” and
the beginnings of how to evaluate images and determine their appropriateness for competition.
