Suspension of Operations

Effective January 1, 2018

It is with sincere and heartfelt regret that on September 5, 2017, the Executive Officers and the Board of Directors of the Southwest Professional Photographers Association have voted to suspend all operations of SWPPA, effective on January 1, 2018.  This decision was predicated primarily by two factors; the dramatically changing photographic industry, as well as the decision by PPA to move all District competitions to Atlanta beginning in 2018. You can click on this link to view and print a copy of the formal letter that has been submitted to the photographic industry and PPA.

We still have a limited quantity of Full and Associate Fellowship Awards in stock that we will continue to award to those who qualify for an award and submit the form accounting for their points earned in 2017.  The remaining awards will be allocated and awarded on a “first come, first served” basis. I also encourage those of you who might have enough Grandfathered points to qualify for either of these awards, to submit your point forms ASAP.  As soon as we have validated the points you are claiming and verified that you have achieved the 50 or 100 point plateau, you will be notified to submit your $35.00 fee per award.  All point forms must be submitted and claimed by December 1, 2017 to qualify.  Information regarding this award program, as well as a PDF of the Point Submittal Form, is available under the button at the top of this home page. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to be awarded one of these limited edition awards.  There will never be any more issued.  Please contact the Executive Director, Michael Scalf Sr, if you have any questions or need assistance in submitting your points. You can call him at 405-485-3838 or email him at
