As Canada’s oldest and most recognized professional association for photographers, the
Professional Photographers of Canada wishes to extend an invitation to your full-time students, pursuing a certificate, degree or diploma in photography, to participate in the Student division of our annual Image Salon.
PPOC is made up of a diversified group of creative artists, companies, and institutions dedicated to the highest standards in professional imaging. Our mandate is to qualify and support photographers to become industry leaders, and to inform the public of the value in hiring an accredited professional photographer.
PPOC’s annual image salon includes a Student Salon. In excess of 1000 images will be critiqued by a panel of qualified practicing professional photographers, many of whom are world-renowned within the photographic industry. This will provide student photographers with valuable information and experience to improve their craft, and will also open them to the opportunity to be considered for a series of Student Awards, to be presented at the PPOC Annual Gala Awards Banquet which will take place on April 18th in Calgary, Alberta. Winners of the Student Image Salon will be awarded a certificate acknowledging excellence in photography, a small cash prize
($250 in each of four student categories), as well as have their work displayed in our Gallerie Magazine and website.
Please find the following links for submissions:
Submission deadline is February 17, 2016 at 5 pm EST, and images will be judged at Langara College on March 4th and 5th. Students, members, and the general public are welcome to watch the judging in person, or they may watch the live streaming, available through our website at www.ppoc.ca.
We hope to encourage strong participation from Student photographers throughout the country. If you have questions specific to the competition, please direct to our National Image Salon Chair, Rima Dickson at email@example.com or (604) 761-5178.
