    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 !!!

    Thanks for that great description for the Showcase Book, Rick. One of my wedding images made it and now I am even more excited since you explained it so well!

    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.
