I got a Bronze Yippy! :)

Ok what's the differace between Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze? I'm guessing it's the number of times you've gone 4/4....

Number of loan images in your 4/4.

So, is "going loan" due to a certain score your print receives or is it decided upon separately? I.E. if a merit is 80 or above, then loan is 90 or above? Or is it different? I've always wondered how that worked.

In PPA, they score the images "thumbs up" and "Thumbs down". When an image comes up with the loan panel of judges, a majority thumbs up is inclusion to the loan collection. The loans are considered the "best of the best" for the year.
