I participated in the MPI ICC last year
and truly value the experience this World Class forum offers. For me, the ICC
is more than just a competition as I believe it is a tool or a steppingstone
that facilitates development of my craft and assists with building a successful
The adjudication offered inspired my
confidence as an artist and promotes a mentality of continuously challenging my
abilities and improvement in my work. With my success in the first year of the
ICC, I look forward to using my performance this year as a metric to gauge my
I appreciate the feedback and
acknowledgment of what I have achieved, and I consider myself enriched through
my participation in this event.
Having been a member for 2 years, during this
period I took on the jump-start option and was successful in obtaining my
Master’s in Portrait Degree, and submitted my first entry to the Image
Challenge, what a journey when I reflect back!
The image challenge was stressful in the beginning
to review, collect, resize and rename images into categories. However, once
submitted, for my first entries I wasn’t expecting too much.
knowing the outcome, I was surprised and pleased with my overall results.
Of course, as an individual I always seek to improve my skills and train my
eye. I’m not striving for bragging rights, I want to ensure quality,
my art keeps on improving. The IIC is one of these mechanisms to achieve
I have been entering IIC since the beginning & I
cannot stress enough how it has helped me grow as a photographer. It has
challenged me to keep learning & evolving my craft. I truly
wouldn’t be where I am today with my photography had I not been entering
consistently every year.
The IIC takes competitions to a new level as I’m not aware of
any others that also gives such feedback from the judges which is
invaluable!! You have nothing to lose & absolutely everything to gain
by taking your first step & entering into MPI International Image
We joined MPI when it first began and have
participated in all the International Print Challenges. As two
semi-retired photographers, we enter the competition NOT to enhance our
business, but to challenge ourselves to learn new skills and to keep our
passion for photography alive. Every year, when the Call For Entries
comes out, we plan to do something entirely different that requires us to delve
deeper into lighting skills and post-production knowledge. Some of these
new projects have paid off with praise from the judges, others have been dismal
failures. For us, the goals are to always continue learning and to enjoy
the process. (An added bonus, which was not our initial purpose, is that
several of our competition images have proven to be highly salable.
We place great value on the comments of the
judges. Although sometimes difficult to hear, we follow their advice when
creating new images. Our work has improved with each competition.
We highly recommend others entering the MPI Print Challenge. There is no
better way to grow as photographers than to have your work judged by these
internationally acclaimed photographers. Be prepared to sometimes read
comments that might make you tense up, that you disagree with, that you despair
over. This is part of the process of taking our work to the next
level. We all have shed a few tears. We believe that MPI has the
finest judges, offers the most transparency, and gives its members the support
we need to fulfill our highest goals. This is an amazing organization
that takes pride in offering an outstanding international competition.
I participated for the first time in the MPI ICC in 2018 and unlike other competitions, I had great support from this organization that helped me understand the rules following me during the loading process. I was welcomed as a member, as if I had joined a new family and I must admit that MPI in this is really unique in the landscape of photographic associations.
An international showcase of great prestige where the level of competition is very high and I hope to see among others, many Italian colleagues participate in the next contest. The constructive criticism offered by the judges of MPIO, have undoubtedly enriched me by stimulating me to grow more and more in my work as a photographer. I can't wait to test myself this year, enthusiastically participating in this great event.
Ho partecipato per la prima volta all' MPI ICC nel 2018 e
diversamente dalle altre competizioni, ho avuto un grande supporto da questa
organizzazione che mi ha aiutato a comprendere le regole seguendomi durante il
processo di caricamento. Sono stata accolta in qualità di membro, come se fossi entrata a far parte di
una nuova famiglia e devo ammettere che MPI in questo è davvero unica nel
panorama delle associazioni fotografiche.
Una vetrina internazionale di grande prestigio dove il livello della competizione
è molto alto e mi auguro di vedere tra gli altri, tanti colleghi italiani
partecipare al prossimo contest. La critica costruttiva offerta dai giudici di MPIO, mi hanno indubbiamente
arricchita stimolandomi a crescere sempre di più nel mio lavoro di fotografo. Non vedo l'ora di mettermi alla prova quest'anno, partecipando con entusiasmo a
questo grande evento.
Every photographer sees their works as a perfect
masterpiece. I have been a member since past 3 years. It has been a wonderful
journey of learning and improving my skills.
Taking part in MPI's competitions and getting my work judged
by the experts has truly been beneficial in sharpening my skills. From prestige
awards to being a wedding photographer of the year 2019, MPI has helped me
abundantly with their judges feedback.
Judges comments helped tremendously in improving my work and
this is reflected in the results of my participation.
This is a great platform for photographers to take their
skills to the next level.
