    2.    When you register for the meeting at www.dallasppa.com, you must register for the print competition and pay the $7 fee.

    ·      Color or Black & White
    ·      Title
    ·      First Year Entrant (if applicable) – Please let me know each month that 2020 is your first year of entry so I can note it in the        spreadsheet.
    4.    After you email your information, upload your entry to https://www.dropbox.com/request/7NzqSpy9tV2yKBcHx93f?oref=e.

    5.    The deadline for all of these things is FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 6, AT MIDNIGHT. Entries received after the deadline will be disqualified.
    6.    Please familiarize yourself with our rules before entering: https://www.dallasppa.com/CompetitionRules
    7.    Just a reminder, images must start at DPPA, so any images entered at other print competitions are not allowed.

    The judges will score the images and results will be calculated over the weekend. We will announce the winners at the online meeting. Your ribbons will be available at the next in-person meeting.
