I was recently privileged to have all four of my images merit at the International Photographic Competition sponsored by the Professional Photographers of America. Two of my images were accepted into the Loan Collection (the best of the best), with the other two being accepted into the General (Merit) Collection. I will be awarded the Gold Photographer of the Year medal at Imaging USA in January.

A panel of 46 eminent jurors from across the United States selected the top photographs from nearly 5,700 total submitted entries at Gwinnett Technical College in Georgia. Judged against a standard of excellence, 2428 images were selected for the General Collection and 1007 were selected for the esteemed Loan Collection—the best of the best. The Loan Collection images will all be published in the much-anticipated “Loan Collection” book and over 200 selected General Collection images will be published in the “Showcase” book by Marathon Press.
