the Professional Photographers of Canada.

In assessing Accreditation Submissions, the judges will consider the following criteria: Impact, Creativity, Style, Composition, Presentation, Color Balance, Centre of Interest, Lighting, Subject Matter, Image file quality, Technique, and storytelling.

Child and Infant Portrait

Accreditation is the first elevation above the general membership level, and is achieved by submitting samples of the applicant’s photography to a PPOC Board of Review for Accreditation. Accreditation demonstrates that the photographer is capable of delivering above average quality photography in a chosen category.

Child Study

More than simply a portrait, a child study requires the photographer to illustrate the character and
inner spirit of a child and should make use of a variety of environments relating to the child. Submit
two series of five images (five per child). Variety should be shown in viewpoints, cropping, settings
and propping (others may be used in a group/couple setting but must be considered as props and
secondary to the main subject).
