BE A PART OF THE PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHERS OF LOUISIANA
PPLA provides an atmosphere for professional advancement and exchange of ideas in photography through education, inspiration, motivation, networking and fellowship.
UNFORTUNATELY DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS THE “PHYSICAL” SPRING SEMINAR IN LAFAYETTE FOR MARCH 22-23, 2020 HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
The PPLA Image Exhibition Committee was very saddened with the need to cancel Spring Seminar and the Competition. We know that a lot of our members had been working hard on their images and were excited about submitting them. Hopefully, the measures everyone is taking to stay safe will pay off and we can get past this crisis soon. In the mean time, the committee has decided to wait and watch before trying to reschedule the competition. We feel right now we need to concentrate on our businesses and our families. In the mean time, we encourage everyone to continue to work on their images and be watching for the next opportunity to learn thru PPLA!!
Also, plan to watch the PPA district competitions which will stream live starting this June! For more information about watching or entering district competition see: https://www.ppa.com/events-members/photo-competitions-mem. Entries are open now!
