Judging for the Loan Collection began today. These prints are the best of the best; only the most exceptional images will “go loan.”
Because the expectations are raised to a much higher level, the judges fire through the prints. Some rooms averaged between 50 – 100 prints and hour.
To be as fair as possible, the PPA uses a list called the “12 Elements of a Merit Image.”
Impact, creativity, technical excellence, composition, lighting, style, print presentation, center of interest, subject matter, color balance, technique, & story telling.
