Impact Award


PPA Charities Impact Award


PPA Charities is proud to offer the “PPA Charities Impact Award” to all photographers who chose to donate. The intention of the award is to bring further awareness of the good works that can be done through charitable giving, in addition to encouraging all photographers who continue to strive to increase their abilities through print competition. “PPA members committed to being a force for positive change in the lives of others.”
