The Biggest Competition of the year, and Studio 3 Images Rocked it!

Every year, we look forward to entering International Print Competition, because it allows us to showcase our creativity and push ourselves to try something new and different.  We aim to submit images that were photographed during client sessions, not just photographed using models.  Based on the results from this year’s International Photographic Competition (held each summer), as presented by Professional Photographers of America (PPA), Studio 3 Images (Andrew, Heidi and Dave) earned the honors of: a Gold Medalist, a Silver Medalist and one image was selected as finalist for the prestigious Grand Imaging Awards.  Of the over 5,000 entries in this year's IPC, the Grand Imaging Awards (GIA) nominates the top 10 images in each of 10 categories,  with one winner from each category awarded the following January, during a presentation at Imaging USA.  One of Dave's entries was selected as a GIA finalist in the 'High School Seniors' category.

PPA members earn the Gold Medal by placing two images in his or her case in PPA’s renowned Loan Collection and two images in the General Collection.

PPA members earn the Silver Medal by placing one image in his or her case in PPA’s renowned Loan Collection and three images in the General Collection.

This is an incredible accomplishment, and we feel very honored to have been recognized amongst some of the best professional photographers in world.  Each year, we strive and push ourselves for excellence through photographic competition.  Be sure to look for more information regarding the Grand Imaging Awards, and the celebration recognizing our achievements, to be held at Imaging USA, Jan. 17-22, 2019, in Atlanta, Georgia.
