Professional Photographers of America each year has a series of Photographic Print Competitions. These competitions are judged by training judges and determine the images which are worthy of Merit and Loan. To see more about his visit my blog post on Print Competition Here.
Print competition is the single most challenging thing I do in my career and the ONE THING which continues to make me a better photographer for all of my clients.
With just a couple of exceptions, all of the images I enter are client images.
In 2016 I was honored with the Kodak Gallery Award and That image is now up for the Kodak Elite Award which will be judged at Imaging USA In San Antonio next week.
In addition, when an image receives the prestigious designation of LOAN, it is then judged one more time for the GRAND IMAGING AWARDS (GIA). This is the best of the best and in the photography world. it’s like being nominated for an Academy Award.
For any competitor, the dream of being nominated for a GIA is the creme-da-la-creme. The best of the best of the best.
I am honored that I have been nominated for 2 GIA’s this year in the Wedding Catagory. I cannot explain how excited I am about this! Both of these images were created for clients and I am over the moon that my client work is being recognized at such a high level.
