PPG - Pentax Photo Gallery

I don't go the the PPG as often as I should but was wondering, how would one submit a picture for consideration to be included into the gallery? I clicked around the main page but didn't see anything. There is a submittal form but it looked like such a thing for suggestions or comments regarding the actual website.

Can anyone enlighten me?

Go to the Contact Us link and ask for an artist code. They will email you the code and a link for submitting images.

Good luck.

Make the first shots you send in are ones you don't care much about

Pick the shots that is sharp everywhere. Make sure there is nothing soft at all.

Just make sure that your image is a quality image and something that will grab the attention of the viewer/voter.

Of course voting is related to personal taste but a stunning, well composed image will appeal to anyone regardless of how they are feeling at that moment.

I think the PPG is great, but it's not the be all and end all though. It is tarnished somewhat by some of the crap that people post and we have to vote on. On the other hand though, photography is for everyone and if people continue to have images rejected naturally they want to know why and will work harder to get better. It can only be a good thing even if we have to look at 30 images of someones family, holiday and backyard that are enough to send us to sleep.

Sorry. That was supposed to be irony there...

I had no ideas what the majority wanted. Just send your work in and cross your fingers.

After all, we do not need other people's rejection defining our own hobby.

Dan, you are putting yourself down again.

Give it a go and treat it like a fun exercise. As long as the images are not something that you have posted in the forum, you will be safe
