Local Photographer's Work on Display at International Exhibition of Professional Photography

Three prints created by Christian Heurich of Heurich Photography in Smithsburg have recently been accepted into the General Collection of the 116th International Exhibition of Professional Photography. Heurich's work will be on display at the Tampa Convention Center January 6-8, 2008 in Tampa, Fla. This exhibition is held in conjunction with Imaging USA, an annual convention of over 8,000 professional photographers and several photographic associations.
Approximately 5,000 entries were submitted to Professional Photographers of America's (PPA's) International Print Competition, from which a panel of more than 40 eminent photographers from across the United States selected the images that would comprise the 2007 General and Loan Collections...the most prestigious awards. Titled "Swept Away", "Riders In The Rain" and "Gently Down The Stream", Heurich's entries will be shown in Tampa alongside approximately 4,000 other photographic works from not only PPA's print competition, but also traveling and special invitational displays. These images will constitute the world's largest annual exhibit of professional photography gathered simultaneously under one roof.
In recognition of the achievement, PPA members receive one merit certificate for each entry into the General Collection and two merits for each entry into the Loan Collection. These merits can be applied toward PPA degrees granted by the association.
The Professional Photographers of America (PPA), an international nonprofit association, exists to assist its more than 18,000 members in achieving their professional, artistic and fraternal goals; to promote public awareness of the profession; and to advance the making of images in all of its disciplines as an art, a science, and a visual recorder of history.
