SPECIAL NOTE: Although our annual conference for 2020 has been canceled, we are making preparations to still hold our annual image competition. Please be sure to check back here for updates as they become available.

The NHPPA image competition for 2020 will take place during our annual conference on April 24-25, 2020 at the Margate Resort in Laconia, N.H. The judging will begin on Friday evening [April 24] from 7 to 9 p.m. and resume on Saturday morning at 9 a.m. and continue until all images have been judged.

The deadline to enter images is 11 p.m. on Wednesday, April 15, 2020. We will be using the software. You may enter a maximum of six images, one of which must be in the Creative Challenge category. The theme for the creative challenge this year is, "Lines and Curves." Refer to the image competition rules for details on preparing and uploading your images.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Image Competition Chair John Malboeuf (


Our esteemed panel of judges for the 2020 competition are:
     • Mark Sweeney, M.Photog.M.Artist.Cr.
     • Ken Bovat, M.Photog.Cr., CPP
     • Joan Genest, M.Photog.Cr.
     • Bruce Hudson, M.Photog.Cr. 
     • Jonathan Adams, M.Photog.Cr., CPP
     • Jury Chair Nancy Green, M.Photog.Cr., CPP 

Anyone who wants to improve their work and continue to grow as a photographer should enter photographic competition. By sitting in on a competition and listening to the judges, you will learn what is important in an image and it will help you pay attention to the details in what you are shooting. While entering a competition might seem daunting at first, it's one of the best, most rewarding experiences you'll have as a professional – and as an artist.

Check out our Resources page and browse through previous award winning images as well as all the 2019 blue ribbon images on the homepage for more inspiration to help in entering image competition.

NHPPA is fortunate to have the same monitor setup used in PPA District and National competitions. We also have three Affiliate Jurors (those who judge at the district and national level) and two Jurors in Training on our panel this year. Entering your images here is a perfect way to get valuable feedback to take your photography skills to the next level and tweak those images before entering them in Northeast Districts or the International Photographic Competition (IPC).
