ppaWendy Seagren-PPA Awards Bronze Metal, Written by Adam Littman of the Columbian Newspaper in Vancouver, Wa. Sept. 2015, at International Photographic Competition. Wendy M. Seagren, who owns www.thruthelensephotography.com is honored by peers and jurors for high-quality photography.

(Camas, Wa.) – Wendy M. Seagren of thruthelensephotography in Camas, Wa. was named a Bronze Medalist during Professional Photographers of America’s 2015 International Photographic Competition. Seagren’s work will be on display at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia, Jan. 10-12, 2016. This International Photographic Exhibit is held in conjunction with Imaging USA.  This is an annual convention for professional photographers and several photographic associations
A panel of 43 eminent jurors from across the United States selected the top photographs from nearly 5,200 total submitted entries.  The competition was held  at Gwinnett Technical College in Georgia. Judged against a standard of excellence, just over 2,100 images were selected for the General Collection and 1,085 (roughly 21 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.  Over 200 selected General Collection images will be published in the “Showcase” book by Marathon Press.

The level of the award is determined by how many of the four images that she submitted,  receive the highest possible honor: acceptance into the PPA Loan Collection, which is displayed at photographic exhibitions, conventions and other photography events. Wendy M. Seagren was named a Bronze Medalist by earning a merit—a mark of quality and honor—for each of the four images included in her entry case to the International Photographic Competition Loan Collection.  This is the most prestigious competition of its kind, where images are judged based on a standard of artistic excellence, not against each other. In 2015, she was one of only 57 Bronze Medalists.
