Andrea Phox of Andrea Phox Photography, Long Branch, NJ was named a Platinum Medalist during Professional Photographers of America’s 2015 International Photographic Competition. Phox’s work will be on display at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia, Jan. 10-12, 2016. This 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 eminent jurors from across the United States selected the top photographs from nearly 5,200 total 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 (roughly 21 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.

 

 

The level of the award is determined by how many of those four images receive the highestpossible honor: acceptance into the PPA Loan Collection, which is displayed at photographic exhibitions, conventions and other photography events. Phox was named a Platinum Medalist, meaning that three of her merited images entered the PPA Loan Collection. In 2015, she was one of only 69 Platinum photographers of the Year.
