The NHPPA image competition for 2021 will take place during our annual conference on April 23-26, 2021 . The conference and print competition will be held virtually due to continued COVID-19 protocols.  The judging will begin on Saturday morning [April 24] at 10 a.m. and continue until all images are judged.   

The deadline to enter images is 11 p.m. on Monday, April 19, 2021. 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, "Fur and Feathers." 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 Allison McGrail  (


Our esteemed panel of judges for the 2021 competition are...

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 2020 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).
