Pressing pause with the postponement of 2023 Honors of Excellence Program

We are pressing pause on our Honors of Excellence program for 2023, so we can take a step back and evaluate how this program can evolve to reach and deliver more value to our photographers, both educationally and creatively.

Honors of Excellence—which includes The Annual 16 x 20 Print, Album and Filmmaking Competitions—is important to us, and we recognize the program’s significance to the WPPI community. However, in order to best serve the WPPI community at large we are going to reassess its current format. We will keep you updated on our progress.

If you have questions about the program in general, or about your personal Honors of Excellence status, please refer to the FAQs (see below) or reach out to us at email address info@wppiawards.com.

We look forward to seeing you at the 41st Annual WPPI Conference and Expo on March 5-9, 2023.  

Thank you for your continued support.
