David Snyder awarded Platinum Photographer of the year in 2020 International Print Competition
For those who are not familiar with Professional Photographers of America's International Print Competition it is kind of like the Olympics of Photography. Each photographer can submit up to 4 images each year in competition. Last year, my first year, I merited one image. Think of this as a "B" internationally. Now that this years results have been published I can finally show my entries that won awards this year. All four of my images submitted were accepted and three of those was chosen to be in the prestigious Loan collection (Think of this as an "A"). This level of achievement earned my a Platinum Medal under PPA Rules. I was one vote away from the Diamond level! This competition is rigorous. In 2020, I am one of only 37 Platinum photographers of the Year internationally.
A panel of 36 eminent jurors from across the United States selected the top photographs from over 5,000 total submitted entries at PPA headquarters in Atlanta. Judged against a standard of excellence, 1,706 images were selected for the General Collection and 865 (roughly 17 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 by Marathon Press.
The level of the award is determined by how many of those four images receive the highest possible honor—acceptance into the PPA Loan Collection, which is displayed at photographic exhibitions, conventions, and other photography events. I was named a Platinum Medalist, meaning that three of their merited images entered the PPA Loan Collection. Check out these images and other Colorado and SW Landscape Photography here:
