The PPSWF Salon image competition is a competition among our members to demonstrate their photographic imaging skills and expertise.


It is wonderful educational process for photographers and digital artists. Judging is done by master professional photographers that choose the winners and offer critique and suggestions. The Salon process is a step towards receiving awards and degrees within the photographic industry on the state and national level. These achievements give photographers and digital artists in the industry the credibility they need to move forward in their career and business.


PPSWF was one of the first guilds in the state to transition to digital salon! All images entered for competition are uploaded to and are viewed and judged on a monitor for all to view. Scoring takes place LIVE and an entrant can even have their score relayed to their smartphone!


Salon is held three times a year in the spring summer and fall, and points are accumulated for awards at our yearly banquet.

Please read the 12 Elements of a Merit Image before submitting your images. Also, make sure to download and hand in a completed copy of the Salon Entry Form along with your check to the PPSWF Treasurer the night of Salon, before 6:45 pm. The entry fee is $10.00 per image, up to 4 images per category.
