Congratulations to Members Rick Bauer and Michael Joseph

We want to congratulate two of our Members – Rick Bauer and Michael Joseph!

At PPA’s National Convention, Imaging USA, in Nashville, these two talented men were recipients of some pretty awesome awards that are certainly well deserved!

Rick received a Photographer of the Year Silver Award along with an Imaging Excellence Award!

“A PPA member who earns a merit for each of the four images included in their print case for the International Print Competition is an incredible accomplishment. The level of the Photographer of the Year Award is determined by how many of those four images receive the highest possible honor: acceptance into the PPA Loan Collection. ”

A Silver Level Photographer of the Year means that one of Rick’s four merited prints entered the PPA Loan Collection.

“The Imaging Excellence Award is presented to those who have achieved not only the Master of Photography degree, but have continued to excel in the International Print Competition. These individuals have placed 13 images in the renowned Loan Collection.”

Michael Joseph was awarded the Master of Photography degree.

“The Master of Photography degree (M.Photog.) is conferred upon those within PPA who have shown photographic excellence through competition and the continued desire to learn and serve the photography community.”
