Diamond and Platinum 2019 Medalist
Cristie competed in Professional Photographers of America 2019 International Competition and is thrilled to announce that she once again was named a Diamond and Platinum Medalist. In 2019, they were one of only 20 Diamond Photographers of the Year, and only 37 Platinum photographers of the Year.
A panel of 36 eminent jurors from across the United States selected the top photographs from over 5,200 total submitted entries at PPA headquarters in Atlanta. Judged against a standard of excellence, 2,654 images were selected for the General Collection and 625 (roughly 12 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. All 8 of Cristie’s images were selected as part of the General Collection, and 7 out of the 8 were selected for the Loan Collection.
Four of Cristie’s images have also been selected to be in the running for this year's Grand Imaging Awards. The winners will be announced at the national convention held in Nashville, Tennessee, January 19-21, 2020.
