    Welcome to PPOC's Image Competition Review.

    If you are new to Image Competition or want advice about an image you are considering for Image Competition this is the place to be. During the image comp review, we will have at least 2 guest judges to review and offer un-official opinions during image comp.

    You may submit up to 6 images for consideration, Cost is 10 per image. We will be hosting these reviews 2 weeks prior to Image Competition, giving you ample time to decide and implement any changes that you wish if any.

    This is especially useful for Image Comp beginners who are unfamiliar with how to edit images for image comp or for seasoned competitors who would like an extra set of eyes to make sure that nothing is missed.
