PHOTOGRAPHER MEGAN MYRICK HONORED IN TEXAS AS INTERNATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST WINNER
RICHMOND HILL, GA – February 3, 2017 – Richmond Hill-based photographer Megan Myrick recently visited San Antonio, Texas, where she was honored by the Professional Photographers of America (PPA). Four of Myrick’s images were chosen for the PPA’s 2016 International Photographic Competition’s General Collection.
Myrick’s photos – titled “A Mother’s Love,” “Big Boy Indeed,” “Pretty in Pink,” and “Puppy Princess” – are images she chose from various shoots with her local clients. Myrick was presented onstage as a winner, and these images were on display at the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center during the exhibition in San Antonio. This exhibition event is held each year in conjunction with Imaging USA, an annual convention and expo for professional photographers.
“It was surreal to see my winning images, larger than life, on display in the Convention Hall,” Myrick said. “Walking the stage later that evening as a recipient of the Bronze Star Photographer award was the culmination of five years of hard work and determination. I’m proof that dreams do come true.”
A panel of 46 judges from across the United States selected the contest’s top photographs at Gwinnett Technical College in Georgia. About 2,000 images were selected for the general collection, and 1,007 were selected for the loan collection. Myrick has also been awarded the Bronze Photographer Distinction for 2016 by the PPA.
The PPA considers 12 separate elements when judging an image – impact, technical excellence, creativity, style, composition, presentation, color balance, center of interest, lighting, subject matter, technique, and storytelling. The nonprofit group, founded in 1869, is the largest photography association organized for and by professional photographers, with more than 29,000 members in over 50 countries.
