Location: Jefferson City, MO - Courtyard 610 Bolivar St Jefferson City, Missouri 65101

We invite you to attend Develop's annual conference. Learn new skills, shoot alongside top-notch photographers, compete in image competition, connect with fellow attendees, and be inspired.

Check-out what is happening for 2022.

Develop is our annual educational conference that has taken place since 1940 (with the exception of one year for war, as stated in our history). It has had different names over the years but has always had the same goal: to educate, encourage, and honor Missouri photographers. This year it takes place in Jefferson City, Missouri. 

PPA members in good standing will receive one education merit from PPA for attending three days of Develop.

The conference will take place at the Courtyard by Marriott in Jefferson City, MO. Book your room early to secure a conference room rate.

Image Competition

Image Competition is by far, the most intense photographic education you can get. Through this process, you will learn to see and view your work in a more objective way, all the while developing a more refined skill set which carries over into your everyday work. We welcome everyone to participate in image competition. Newcomer or seasoned veteran, we all have something to offer and something to learn.

Image competition through our State Affiliate, MOPPA, is based on the 12 Elements of a Merit Image, as established by the Professional Photographers of America. 

This is a DIGITAL ONLY competition.

All images MUST be pre-registered and uploaded to PrintCompetition.com

Why should you stay in the room block?

The price is good, for one! Also, our rates are calculated based on the hotel filling rooms. If we do not fill our allotted rooms, we will still pay for them. Not coming directly out of your pocket? Well, yes it is. It comes out of our general funds (which are your yearly dues...) Please keep that in mind.

Get a roommate or two and share the cost of the room! 

Also, there are very few king sized beds in this hotel. If you want a KING... book ASAP.

Digital File Submission Instructions

The Professional Photographers of America has gone to a system of digital submissions to prints at the International Print Competition. Due to this, we have decided that it is in our best interest to offer a digital competition. This allows our members to be judged at the same size as they will be at IPC as well as learn calibration and color management skills. The below requirements and settings will help with accurate representation on the competition monitor.

Images saved with long side at 4000px. Quality 10.

Images can be submitted online at https://www.printcompetition.com

Membership for the site is required at a negligible fee.
