In the competition there were 146 images entered, and all three of Bill Curry Photography’s entries were in the 85 “accepted images” winning group, and the photo shown, Bald Eagles, won a Merit award as one of the 30 images chosen as worthy of that honour.
Submitted images are judged by a group of very highly qualified, trained judges, all of whom have already achieved their PPOC Craftsman of Photographic Arts or Master of Photographic Arts designation. They have completed a PPOC Judging Clinic to prepare them for the process of objectively judging the images without any personal bias. This is not an easy task and PPOC is constantly striving to nurture and develop a strong group of qualified members to take on this difficult and taxing responsibility.
The Image Salon is one of the Professional Photographers of Canada cornerstone activities.. This salon showcases, literally, the best of the best, from those submitted images deemed worthy of inclusion in the final Salon, there are tiered levels of acceptance. The first level is simply known as “Accepted” and denotes that the image is of a high enough level to warrant being displayed in a prestigious national display of photography by the members of PPOC. The next level is known as “Merit” and indicates a clear step above the first level of Accepted. The highest level is known as “Excellence”. At Moncton there were 146 images entered, 85 garnered a score of “accepted”, 30 received a “merit” award and 7 images were given the highest ranking of “excellence”.
