MPI 2018 IIC Winners Circle



WOW! What a great year for the MPI 2018 International Image Challenge...

Congratulations and thank you to all that Participated in this years MPI 2018 International Image Challenge

As Professional Photographers and Artists, challenging ourselves to new levels with competition is one of the best ways to keep our Photographic Art fresh and up to date with today's ever-changing industry. By receiving feedback from Industry Professionals that are not only trained judges, but mentors and workshop instructors, we believe this has created one of the most educational competitions in the industry. 

The 4th Annual MPI International Image Challenge was a success as it breaks another record on entries. We have noticed over the past 4 years many entrants into the MPI IIC Competition have grown in their PHOTOGRAPHIC ART!   

For members of Master Photographers International that have entered - don't forget, you have earned Certificates that count towards your next level in the Master Program. MPI is closing in on its 6th year and a number of our members are closing in on their next level including some members getting closer the Grand Master Designation. WOW MPI are so honored to be representing such talented photographers!
