Program Description: 

Soon, our 2022 MPPA Image competition will be upon us!  Are you ready?  Would you like some feedback on your images?  Join us in our upcoming image critique night.  Send your own images or, if you prefer,  just listen and learn from other's images.  We'll have a panel of at least four members with Rob Smith moderating. 

Please email "" up to 4 images with the following naming convention and maximum dimensions on or before February 25th:

    • YourName-1-ImageTitle.jpg
    • YourName-2-ImageTitle.jpg
    • YourName-3-ImageTitle.jpg
    • YourName-4-ImageTitle.jpg
  • The #'s in the name denote which image is most critical to you for feedback.  This allows us to critique everyone's 1's, then the 2's and so on.  If we have time to critique all images, we will!  If we run out of time, the most critical to you will be critiqued.
  • Maximum dimension is 4000 pixels on the longest side saved with JPG quality of 10, which is consistent with our standard print competition rules.

The Critique will be recorded:  

For those who register, we will be recording the critiques and it will be made available for a full 30 days after the date of the critique.  So, if you cannot attend 'in person' via Zoom, please register and you can watch it until April 4th.

Rob Smith - Moderator:

What awards have Rob Smith not won? Rob has reached as high as Diamond Photographer Of The Year at IPC (plus platinum and bronze showings), Maine Photographer Of The Year, graced the cover of PPA magazine twice, and far too many more things to count. He will be moderating this evening of learning and image critique.  We will start off with a short presentation about the 12 elements of a merit image before getting into reviewing the submitted images. Please follow the guidelines as outlined in the graphic in order to participate! Some of our board will be acting as jurors with Rob moderating discussions about the images. Join us and learn from some of the best in print competition!
