    Re: PPFA Framing Competitions

    Several in our chapter are still uncommitted about submitting a piece this year, and are still in the 'I'm thinking about it' stage. [This has typically been the case that our framers wait until the last week, even if they have purchased the piece, and then we end up getting several last minute requests.]

    One question that came up in our event last week was how many photos are allowed? Just one from the front, or a photo from the front and back? Also, if there are involved steps that are not apparent from the photo, should pictures be submitted of these too?

    Looking forward to the competition.

    Re: PPFA Framing Competitions

    Great Questions Russ. We are asking for 3 photos, Front, Back and Detail. They will frame and prepare the paperwork just as they would in the past, so they do need to fill in the description form they should have gotten from the download with the PRINT purchase. There is a section to explain any hidden items that need to be better explained. The Technical will be judged closely at the Finals in Vegas. There are only a couple of technical items to be judged at the Digital Competition as we can not physically touch the piece and see up close as we will be able to in person. Remind them the OPEN Competition is occurring also so be sure to Enter this one also. The Packet for both is available at the PPFA online store.

    We are holding a conference call tomorrow at 5 EST to answer questions. Please be sure they are aware of this call and ask them to join. I have copied the info below about the call.

    ​Thanks Robin
