Bring your A-game! Get the most out of WPPI 2016 with these three tips from Rangefinder Magazine's Editor-In-Chief, Jacquie Tobin:

  1. Attend the Live Print, Album & Filmmaking Judging on March 5th and 6th. Even if you can only come for an hour, it's a fascinating experience and you get to hear directly from leaders in the industry on what makes for a winning image!
  2. The classes are super-informative and you will learn more In a week than you have in a lifetime--but remember to make time for the parties, as well! WPPI has an amazing lineup of special events, including the kick-off party on Sunday, March 6th, at the hottest club in Vegas, Hakassan, and the WPPI Fun Run on Tuesday morning, March 8th.
  3. Pace yourself! There's so much to do in just a week. Get some good sleep (but not too much) and stay hydrated! This will be the best week of your life!
