Rockville Photographer Named Platinum Medalist at International Photographic Competition

Rockville-Maryland.    Joseph Giitter of Bohemian Photoworks in Rockville, Maryland was named a Platinum Medalist during Professional Photographers of America's 2017 International Photographic Competition.  Giitter’s work will be on display at the Gaylord Opryland Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee, Jan. 14-16, 2018. This International Photographic Exhibit is held in conjunction with Imaging USA, an annual convention and expo for professional photographers.

A panel of 33 eminent jurors from across the United States selected the top photographs from nearly 5,800 total submitted entries at Gwinnett Technical College in Georgia. Judged against a standard of excellence, 2,660 images were selected for the General Collection and 644 (roughly 11 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 and 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 those four images receive the highest possible honor: acceptance into the PPA Loan Collection, which is displayed at photographic exhibitions, conventions and other photography events.  Giitter was named a Platinum Medalist, meaning that three of his merited images entered the PPA Loan Collection. In 2017, he was one of only 29 Platinum photographers of the Year.
