WPPI’s First Half competition is the one of WPPI’s two annual online competitions in which each image receives personal feedback from one of our world-renowned judges. Entering the First Half competition is the first step towards entering the Annual 16×20 Print, Album and Filmmaking competition and earning points toward the Honors of Excellence.

The winners of the First Half competition square off against the Second Half winners for the honor of taking home the Division Winner. This is awarded in four different divisions: Wedding, Portrait, Commercial, and Photojournalism. Sub-divisions include Senior Portraits, Illustrative, and Commercial Photography, among others.

The WPPI competition series culminates with live judging at WPPI’s yearly conference, expo and gallery exhibition taking place in Las Vegas. Prizes include the Grand Awards and crystal trophies.

New this year! First Half competition now accepts entries from Non-Members.
