Dedicated to improving the photographic industry through
Professionalism, Craftsmanship, and Comradery.
The IPPA would like to recognize and congratulate Allison Watkins, of English Photography (www.englishphoto.com), for her amazing accomplishment this past year during the International Print Competition (IPC). Allison achieved Diamond Photographer along with 23 others. Reaching Diamond means that all four images Allison submitted were chosen for the prestigious Loan Collection. Those four images are the first in the slideshow below. Allison is not only an amazing and accomplished artist, she’s also a past IPPA Board Member, an IPC Judge, and an all around great person!
The PPA hosts the IPC where Photographers from around the World submit up to four of their images to be judged against a standard of excellence, just over 1,800 images were selected for the General Collection and 918 (roughly 18 percent) were selected for the esteemed Loan Collection–the best of the best. The Loan Collection images will all be published in the much-anticipated “Loan Collection” book and over 200 selected General Collection images will be published in the “Showcase” book by Marathon Press.
Images accepted into the General and Loan Collections will also be on display at the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville, Tennessee Feb. 1-3, 2015 during Imaging USA, the annual convention and expo for professional photographers. These images constitute one of the world’s largest annual exhibits of professional photography gathered simultaneously under one roof.
