Going for Gold

Entering print competitions is one of the best ways for photographers to hone their craft by seeing how they stack up against their peers and learning from each other throughout the judging process. At this years International Print Competition hosted by the Professional Photographers of America, I earned the distinction of being a Gold Medalist with all four of my prints getting blue ribbons, one of them being accepted in to the Genral Collection, one being accepted in to the Genral Collection Showcase book and two of them being accepted in to the prestigious Loan Collection. It is an honor to have that kind of success when being judged by such high standards against thousands of incredibly talented photographers across the country.

Here are the four images that were entered.

"Out of Reach"

"Third Party Candidate"

"Shootout Round Six"

There are several regional print competitions leading up to the IPC, including the competition at the Focus NY conference through the Professional Photographers Society of New York State. We were allowed to enter six prints there instead of the usual four. The images below also received blue ribbons at Focus NY along with the images above.
