The new Evidence Photographer Certification (EPC), a unique certification for evidence photographers, will also be launched at EPIC School. Material will be presented through hands-on education with a well-respected evidence photography professional.

EPIC School brings its extensive offerings together for the second year with Imaging USA (, the photo event by the Alliance of Visual Artists (AVA) that drew 8,600 photographers last year. The combination of these conferences assures attendees of even more valuable career information, including a full day of business education. And to keep the structure convenient, all programming will be held at the Phoenix Convention Center, which is also where the 600-booth Imaging Expo will be.

By joining forces with Imaging USA, attendees of EPIC School will have access to the industry's most diverse forum for photographic education. In addition, the special presentation with Anne Geddes, the evening activities, and convention-wide parties are up for grabs.

EPIC School is the place where serious evidence photographers can get the education they need, fine-tune skills, find products, network, and have fun…all in the same place.

EPIC was founded in 1968 as a nonprofit educational and scientific organization for advancing forensic photography and videography in civil evidence and law enforcement.
