The Grand Imaging Award Finalists Are... - PPA Today

The Grand Imaging Award Finalists Are...

...coming soon! On September 7, 2017, PPA will (for the first time!) publicly announce the finalists for 2018's Grand Imaging Awards!

The GIAs are awarded at Imaging USA 2018, the largest annual conference and trade show for pro photographers. The Grand Imaging Award finalists have been judged to be the very best of the 2017 PPA International Photographic Competition (IPC). 

The Grand Imaging Award finalists were selected from 5,800 entries judged by a panel of 33 jurors. There are ten finalists in ten categories comprising the Grand Imaging Awards, and one winner from the ten categories will be named the recipient of the overall Grand Imaging Award. 

Each category winner will receive a crystal award and the winner of the overall Grand Imaging Award will receive a $1000 cash prize. Last year's winner was Chicago pet photographer Barbara Breitsameter, M.Photog.Cr., CPP,  for her image "Send in the Clowns" in the General Portrait category. 

So, get ready to celebrate and share congratulations! In one week, the 2018 Grand Imaging Award finalists will be revealed!
