IPC_Rules_SW.jpgHopefully you will get a chance to check out the International Photographic Exhibit (right next to the Expo) at Imaging USA in Nashville. When you do, you might wonder where those beautiful images come from. You might even daydream a bit about seeing your own work up there at Imaging USA 2016 in Atlanta.

You can make it happen. The displayed images make up PPA's Loan Collection and are chosen by a panel of judges at the International Photographic Competition (IPC), held each year in August. Only the top images make it to the prestigious Loan Collection each year, but don't let that intimidate you.

 If you're feeling inspired and want to be more recognized, a good place to start is your local district competition. Take a look at the 2015 dates. Entries for the Southwest District competition open next week!

The International Photographic Competition was earlier this month and the results have been in for weeks

Now, it's time to dish out some medals. Well, not actually dish them out, that doesn't happen until Imaging USA, but we can at least tell you who won!

So yes, there be SPOILERS AHEAD!

PPA members receive these medalist designations by earning a merit--a mark of quality and honor--for each of the four images included in their entry case to the International Photographic Competition. This is the most prestigious competition of its kind, where images are judged based on a standard of artistic excellence, not against each other. 

After going 4/4 at the merit level, these images went to another round of judging. The level of the award is determined by how many of those four images receive the highest possible honor: acceptance into the PPA Loan Collection, which is displayed at photographic exhibitions, conventions and other photography events. 

The scoring rundown is as follows:

Diamond - 4/4 accepted into Loan Collection
Platinum - 3/4
Gold - 2/4 
Silver - 1/4 
Bronze - 4/4 merited, no Loan

And here is the spread of our 224 winners:

Diamond - 12
Platinum - 32
Gold - 59 
Silver - 66 
Bronze - 55 

"These photographers have reached a prestigious achievement," states Randy McNeilly, PPA's Photographic Exhibition Committee Chairman. "It takes dedication to achieve the consistent quality and creativity necessary to earn the title of Silver Medalist in one of the world's most celebrated photography competitions. While they will be receiving this award at Imaging USA in Phoenix, the real winners will be their clients who have commissioned the work!"

Make sure you check out the full list of IPC medal winners, ranging from Diamond to Bronze.


Here are a few of the winner images which will be on display at Imaging USA, January 12-14 in Phoenix.
