What is a PPOC accreditation
Accreditation is a first level of achievement for an active member of the association and is achieved by submitting a portfolio to a Pan-Canadian PPOC Evaluation Board.
This honor demonstrates that the artist has the ability to deliver above average work in a specific category.
Impact, creativity, style, composition, presentation, mastery of colors, focus, lighting, subject, image quality and technique are among the criteria evaluated by the judges.
In addition to other Merits Service and Merit Photos required, accreditation is required to qualify for the title of “Craftsman of Photographic Arts” and two are required for the title of “Master of Photographic Arts”.
