One of the cornerstones of the Professional Photographers of
Canada is the PPOC Annual Image Salon(competition). This
juried exhibition showcases the best of the best. Within this
Salon Exhibition, you will find the most creative, the newest and
most cutting edge, and finest technically executed images
produced by our members.
This inspirational collection of images displays the level of
excellence Canadian photographers have achieved. Some of the
best photographic talent in the world lives and works in Canada
, and enters this PPOC image competition in the hopes of being
selected for the Salon Exhibition.
Active/Accredited members of PPOC are invited to submit
images annually to a juried exhibition. A group of highly
qualified judges, all of whom have obtained their Craftsman of
Photographic Arts or Master of Photographic Arts designation,
and have been trained as jurors, assemble to review
submissions. These jurors have the monumental task of viewing
in excess of 800 images, setting aside any personal bias and
judging objectively, to determine those images worthy of being
accepted into the Salon Exhibition.
From those submitted images deemed worthy of inclusion in the
final Salon Exhibition, those which stand above the rest are
awarded scores of Merit, and the small number which are
deemed to be truly exceptional images are awarded the
prestigious score of Excellence.
