Results are in from the 2015 Professional Photographers International Print Competition and I am pleased that each of the prints I submitted received a merit (a big deal in photographer circles) and one was chosen to be published in the judges showcase book for 2015.
Below is a nice article about me published by the McKinney Courier newspaper and my winning entries.
I have always felt that I should enter the portraits I create for my clients instead of trying to create images just to submit for competition, so thank you to you, my clients, who trust me to create award winning images of you and your families.
David Quisenberry of David Quisenberry Photography in McKinney was named a bronze medalist during Professional Photographers of America’s (PPA) 2015 International Photographic Competition.
Quisenberry’s work will be on display Jan. 10-12 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. The International Photographic Exhibit is held in conjunction with Imaging USA, an annual convention and expo for professional photographers and several photographic associations.
A panel of 43 jurors from across the United States selected the top photographs from nearly 5,200 submitted entries at Gwinnett Technical College in Georgia. Judged against a standard of excellence, just over 2,100 images were selected for the General Collection and 1,085 were selected for the esteemed Loan Collection – the best of the best, according to a news release.
The Loan Collection images will be published in the “Loan Collection” book and over 200 selected General Collection images will be published in the “Showcase” book by Marathon Press.
Quisenberry was named a Bronze Medalist by earning a merit – a mark of quality and honor – for each of the four images included in his entry case to the competition. It’s the most prestigious competition of its kind, where images are judged based on a standard of artistic excellence, not against each other. He was one of only 57 bronze medalists this year.
