If you are somewhat new to Print Competitions it can be challenging to understand what constitutes an image worthy of Merit per the PPA guidelines. The PPA has some great resources about this topic, though sometimes its hard to beat seeing an example!

The collection of images on this page were provided by the Artist as images that Merited in an official competition. We encourage you to take a detailed look at each image and identify the items in each image that qualify it as worthy of Merit.

Last we have a collection of images that received a Merit vote at the most recent competition.
