Think Like a Competition Judge - Lisa Dillon & Bryan Welsh
Learn to better understand Image Competition from the Judge’s side of the equation—learn how scoring works, how to apply the 12 Elements in critiquing an image, learn judging etiquette and how to verbally critique an image in this full-day judge class. You’ll learn how to evaluate your own images (as well as others’ images) using the PPA Image Competition standards. You’ll also learn what is new in the process and better understand the IPCC rules changes for the upcoming competition season. If you are planning to enter images at District or IPC competitions, you’ll want to attend this class so you can make sure you fully understand the new submission and disqualification rules. Even if you aren’t interested in entering OPPA's Juror Development Program, this class will help you with your own competition journey.
