I'm assuming "L" means Loan, but what do "G" and "GB" mean?

G means merit in General Collection, GB means will appear in the General Book of images.

And what does meriting in the General Collection mean? Thank you!

A merit counts toward your degree.
For a Master of Photography degree you need at least 13 print merits and 12 other (service or speaking or they can be more print merits as well) for a total of 25 merits.
For a Craftsman Degree you need at least 13 speaking merits and 12 other merits for a total of 25.
For a Master of Electronic Imaging degree you need 13 Electronic imageing print merits and 12 other merits for a total of 25.

So getting a merit on an image represents master level work.
Entering is such a great way to improve your photography and it helps market your studio. Hope to see you entering soon.

Sorry I didn't directly answer this. An image recieves one print merit for the General collection. The General book is an honor, those images are printed in a coffee table book that is made available.
Loan Collection means the image travels around the world to associations that want to display the loan collection. It is also printed in a seperate coffee table book.
Loan collection images (the best of the best) recieve 2 print merits, 1 for being selected to the General collection and 1 more for being selected to the Loan Collection.
Hope this helps
Keith

Thanks for the explanation Keith. One of my prints got chosen for General Collection and I just didn't know what that entailed in its entirety.
