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.

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.

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.
