Annual Convention and Print Competition 2021
MDPPA is a State Affiliate of Professional Photographers of America (PPA). We are a separate membership organization, yet we are mutually beneficial.
There are many benefits to being a member of both MDPPA and PPA. Some of our programs offer Continuing Education Merits for PPA member attendees. PPA Member Speakers for our programs are eligible to receive speaker merits from PPA. Our print competition program is in association with PPA guidelines.
Consider attending PPA's Imaging USA this January 2021, which is virtual this year! Click here for more information: IMAGING USA. Registration is available to all, whether you are a PPA member or not!
