Creative Concepts for Competition

If you’re working towards a degree this program will get you ahead of the game. Some, whom have received their Masters, think they don't need to enter print competition anymore or they have developed a major creative block. If you have reached this point, Christie is going to help you get out of that rut and go through her creative process to go above and beyond with your competition prints. This will be hands on shooting and post processing.

We have secured a special room rate of $99 per night for this event. Make sure that you mention PPM when booking for your discount.
The discount ends August 24, 2017, so, book early and save.
