NATIONAL AWARDS


 

On this page are the national awards that I received from Professional Photographers of America.  PPA holds an annual international competition with several thousand submissions from across the globe.  I find the word “competition” a misnomer. There is no constraint on the number of  awards, but rather the selected images satisfy according to panels of 5-7 judges twelve criteria. The criteria fall under the topics of impact, technical excellence,  lighting, composition, color balance, creativity, style, presentation, centers of interest, subject matter, and story-telling. Most of the images that receive awards enter the General Collection that exhibits at the annual PPA convention. A small proportion of the awards goes into the Loan Collection that takes the forms of a fine-art volume published by Marathon Press and an exhibit that travels the world with the President of PPA.

Recently PPA introduced a second fine-art book that houses the Showcase Collection.  My prints in the General and the Loan Collections went towards my achieving the PPA Degree of Master of Photography.   A former academic, I am pleased particularly to see my work in publications. Seven prints — street portraits, architectural images, and a floral scene — appear in the PPA Loan Book* and one print–a street portrait–in the PPA Showcase Book.* 

A sufficient number of loan-images led PPA to grant me the distinction of Master of Photography, which I discuss at length on the front page of the website.

Although I do not like to compete, I cannot help be proud of receiving in January 2018 a Medallion Award from the American Society of Photographers (ASP) for having received the highest score on an image submitted to the Northeast District of PPA. Members of ASP must be Masters of Photography. The image is “Addict”. Awards

I marked the art-images in this section to inhibit businesses from downloading and using or selling the works.  Available to you are clean prints of the images that I order from a professional lab in the medium and, subject to the aspect ratio, at the size that you want.  Please scroll down to see the national photography awards.
