PMPA members Cindy Kassab, Darrell Davis, PMPA board member Tom Reiman and PMPA President Mark Fitzgerald each earned Professional Photgraphers of America (PPA) merits at the recent PPA Western District Photographic Competition.
Held in Los Angeles from Feb. 22-24, 2013, the district competition was open to photographers from across the western states, including Oregon, Washington, California and others.
Judged on a 1-100 scale, images receiving a score of 80 or above each receive a PPA ‘Seal of Approval.’ Those images are often referred to like a “merit image,” but it requires that the photographer enter that sealed image in the next PPA international competition before receiving a merit.
Once that takes, place, the entrant is automatically accepted into the international competition’s General Collection.
“This is a big deal,” said PMPA Membership Director Mike Anderson, who also took part in the competition. “Because images falling into this category are guaranteed international awards of some sort.”
At the Western District Competition, Kassab saw three of the four images she entered receive merits. Her photograph “Attitude” received a score of 81, “Luminous Landscape” an 87 and “Visitor from the North” a score of 81.
Davis also saw three of his four images receive merits. He received an 80 for “Remember When,” an 80 for “Stairway to the Clouds” and an 81 for “Waiting for the Fog to Lift.”
Fitzgerald, meanwhile, received merits for two of his four entries. He received a score of 81 for “Forgotten Hero,” and an 81 for “Sixty Fourth Floor Sunrise.”
Finally, Reiman also earned merits for two of his four images. He earned an 80 for “Hangin’ On” and an 82 for “Last Legs.”
