(Everything you’ve always wanted to know but were afraid to ask!)

The Artist category is one of the most misunderstood concepts in image competition.  To have success with Artist images, you first need to understand the category.

Master Artist and PPA International Juror Larry Lourcey will take you on a guided tour of the entire process -from concept to completion.  Larry has judged the category at both the District and International levels for the past several years and will give valuable insight into what exactly goes through the judges’ minds as they evaluate Artist images.

Topics will include:

* Planning a great Artist entry

* Avoiding common pitfalls

* Entering Artist vs Open category
