Nikki Harrison Named Gold Medalist at International Photographic Competition
Nikki Harrison Photography is honoured by peers and jurors for high-quality photography
Kelowna, BC – Nikki Harrison was named a Gold Medalist during Professional Photographers of America's 2016 International Photographic Competition. Harrison's work will be on display at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Centre in San Antonio, Texas, Jan. 8-10, 2017. This International Photographic Exhibit is held in conjunction with Imaging USA, an annual convention and expo for professional photographers.
A panel of 46 eminent jurors from across the United States selected the top photographs from nearly 5,700 total submitted entries at Gwinnett Technical College in Georgia. Judged against a standard of excellence, just over 2,428 images were selected for the General Collection and 1,007were 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 highest possible u: acceptance into the PPA Loan Collection, which is displayed at photographic exhibitions, conventions and other photography events. Harrison was named a Gold Medalist, meaning that two of her four merited images entered the PPA Loan Collection. In 2016, she was one of only 102 Gold Medalists.
