INSPIRE Annual Convention and CAPTURE Fall Meeting
INSPIRE is the PPA of PA’s Annual Convention and Print Competition held each spring. Our talent committee works hard to bring in top speakers and print competition judges from around the country. Breaks between programs feature snacks and a chance to mingle with other photographers. Print Competition awards, PPA of PA degree awards, PPA of PA service awards, new membership certificates, and the Golden Bell awards are presented during the banquet. The membership meeting is also held during this event, making this the one DON’T MISS opportunity of the year!
CAPTURE is held during the fall and features a schedule packed with speakers! Although the schedule may be full, time between programs is an excellent chance to connect with fellow photographers. The CAPTURE Print Competition offers participants the opportunity to have their images evaluated by a panel of highly experienced and qualified judges.
