Jacquie Matechuk Received PPOC Accreditation in the category of Ornithology


What is a PPOC Accreditation

Accreditation is a first level of achievement for an active member of the association and is achieved by submitting a portfolio to a Pan-Canadian PPOC Evaluation Board.

This honor demonstrates that the artist has the ability to deliver imagery that is a "cut above" in this category of Scenic/Pictoral by capturing content that exemplifies impact, creativity, style, composition, presentation, mastery of colors, focus, lighting, subject, image quality and technique. These are the criteria evaluated by a panel of 6 nationally Accredited Judges.

In addition to other Merits Service and Merit Photos required, accreditation is required to qualify for the title of “Craftsman of Photographic Arts” and two are required for the title of “Master of Photographic Arts”.
