The APPA photographic competition is a competition where photographic entries are evaluated against a standard of excellence using the 12 Elements of a Merit Image. By participating in photographic competition APPA members are eligible to earn Image Exhibition Credits, which can place the entrant closer to an APPA degree such as the Associate Fellow, Fellow, and Senior Fellow of Photography. These rules pertain to images created by traditional photographic processes as well as those captured and/or manipulated electronically with a digital camera or scanner.
