It's a glitch. They DID do the Showcase Album selection again this year. The book will be made up of only 175 images this year. I'll check into it and see why there are no book selections on the report. They may have to regenerate the report.

I received an email answer back today from the PEC's IT specialist that they are addressing the issue. I'll let you know when I hear more.

They never gave me an ETA on the new list. The IT guy will let me know when they get it updated and I'll post a notice here.

oh Stan- just noticed your name on the list- you should go check- of the General merits- several hundred(?) are selected for the Showcase Book- so you have the Loan Collection Book and the Showcase. :) Not sure if there are any other bennies for getting selected GB (Showcase) besides bragging rights

Stan,

The Showcase Album is a special collection of only 175 images selected from the PPA General Collection. It is also referred to as the "General Book". The way the Showcase Album images are selected is that each juror receives a packet of 6 "chips". Each "chip" represents one selection for the General Book. During the Loan Collection judging, when a juror finds an image that they just fall in love with, if the image is not selected for the Loan Collection, the juror can give up one of his or her "chips" and place that image into the "General Book / Showcase Album". Usually, the selections are those that a juror wanted in the Loan Collection, fought for, and could not convince enough of his or her fellow jurors to go along with him for the Loan Collection. So this is kind of like a "Juror's Choice" Award, so it's actually a special honor since each juror only receives 6 selections, and we were told that only 175 images were going to be included in the Book this year - so we gave each juror only 6 chips each this year. The Showcase Album images do not receive an extra merit like the Loan Collection images do, but each selected image will be featured as a FULL PAGE print in the Showcase Album.

So Stan, you better plan to order a couple copies of the PPA Showcase Album this year because "Dublin Harbor" was selected for the General Book.
Congratulations ! That makes a nice way to get your last images needed for your Masters - getting a Showcase Book image too !!!

Rick, thanks for the explanation... had no idea.... funny thing, that image was my throw in.... couldn't find a 4th, and I really liked that image, so I filled out the case... so, yes, I'll be ordering a couple of them.... thanks again. :cool:

Way to go Stan!!!

Rick, thank you for that great explanation! PPA needs to copy and paste that somewhere (maybe a link next to the link for the results page) for people to read. This was my first year submitting, so I had no clue. All I knew was that I was excited to see one of mine on the list suddenly have a "GS" beside it, but after reading your explanation I'm even more excited about it!

Rick, that is a super explanation of the Showcase Book. I'm going to copy and paste it to another competition forum. I hope that's OK. Could you explain how the Loan prints are accepted into the Collection? Is it by majority vote or how does it work? Thanks!

Lee, after images are accepted into the Merit category the are presented to another panel and voted on for Loan. It is a majority vote but the panels are larger. Up to 11. All Loan prints are put into the Loan Collection Book and the maker receives a second Merit for Loan. I know I am not Rick but he does live in LA and is most likely dealing with the hurricane.

Thanks so much for the explanations on showcase book and loan - I've learned so much over the past two years through entering competition, and feel like it will be so much easier for me to enter next year now. For newcomers to competition, though, the process and understanding the judging is so complicated! All the fabulous information that Rick (and others) have shared about the process in this forum should somehow be copy pasted into a FAQ to be included on the webpage for next year's competition - it would be so incredibly helpful to so many!

Not sure where I could "officially" make that suggestion?

Hello - When and how will we learn the actual numeric scores for our entries? It's my first IPC and I'm eager to learn where all my entries placed, especially the non-meriting ones. Thanks.

IPS isnt numeric, its thumbs up/thumbs down. Accepted or not accepted. If you ordered a critique you would get more feedback.
