I was informed yesterday that my image is in the top 32 in the commercial category in Professional Photographers of America’s (PPA) all-new “International Print Competition (IPC). There are 16 different categories, and the winner of each category will win $1000 in a head-to-head competition at Imaging USA in Louisville. The IPC overall winner will receive a $10,000 cash prize.
The IPC has changed over the past years and is the very highest level of photography competition with some of the top photographers in the world. All the images in the 16 categories and specially trained judges scored on four criteria: Composition, Impact, Style, and Technical Excellence. The image can receive 25 points per criteria for a possible total score of 100, and the top-scoring 32 images for each category move on to be judged live at Imaging USA.
I am so honored to be one of the top 32 images and look forward to the judging and seeing how far I go. Per judging rules, the images are allowed to be published once the final competition takes place in January. I will keep you posted when the first round of judging starts at Imaging USA.
