We've added an all-new event at Imaging USA this year to honor the hottest of the hot images of the International Photographic Competition. Here's how it works.
In order to qualify for a Grand Imaging Award, images not only have to earn a merit in one of the world's toughest photographic competitions, they also have to be judged the best of the best--awarded entry to the Loan Collection. (What a strange name, huh? Not so much when you consider that years ago, these were the images that formed a traveling exhibit for museums and prestigious public gatherings.)
But let's go back to the future. On Monday, January 17 (6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m., with doors opening at 5:30 p.m.) we'll award prizes in each of the International Photographic Competition categories. We'll also honor the 2010 Photographers of the Year--all the photographers who merited all four images in the competition. So many outstanding photographers. So many beautiful images--that's one happy hour.
The Grand Imaging Awards celebration is open to everyone attending Imaging USA. To make it an even happier hour, there's a cash bar, light refreshments and the opportunity to visit with friends, so come on over and help us cheer on the best of the best.
