PRPA provides the opportunity to compete with other amateur photographers beyond your local camera club. The competitions are friendly and the judges’ comments provide helpful feedback. The winners are awarded certificates and ribbons. Digital image competitions are held in both fall and spring; print competitions in the spring. PRPA member clubs take turns judging the competitions; each club is requested to judge at least one competition each year.
