PPA recognizes the lengths you go to as a professional photographer to continue your education. It’s our promise to offer you one-of-a-kind online and in-person educational programs that encourage your learning, but we’d like to go even further and give back to our hard-working members. This year, PPA will provide four lucky members with an all-access pass to Imaging USA 2023, January 22-24, in Nashville, Tennessee, via the annual PPA Kickstart Scholarship.
Imaging USA is the premier photography conference and expo featuring more than 80 speakers, networking opportunities, celebrations, and over 50,000 square feet of exhibitions. In the past, the event has been attended by more than 10,000 photographers, making it the largest gathering of its kind.
PPA is providing four full scholarships for Imaging USA including a free pre-convention class, held the three days prior to the January 22-24 convention. Winners will get to choose from available classes for an extra learning boost before Imaging USA officially begins.
"The PPA Kickstart Scholarship is a great opportunity to give back to our members," said Kristen Morgan, PPA's Director of Member Value and Experience. "We're always looking for new ways to assist photographers and move the industry forward... after all, that’s the reason we exist! What better way to do that than to foot the bill and help a few photographers attend Imaging USA?"
To be eligible, photographers must be a full or part-time photographer, an active member of the association (any membership type), and have not previously received a scholarship from PPA. Applications must be submitted by October 31, 2022, and the winners will be announced by November 25.
