Local Photographer's Work Goes to International Exhibition ... Kurt English of Kurt English Photography is honored by peers and jurors for high-quality photography.
Jacksonville, Florida—"Always On My Toes" created by Kurt English of Kurt English Photography in Jacksonville has recently been accepted into the Loan Collection of Professional Photographers of America's 2015 International Photographic Competition. English's work was on display at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia Jan. 10-12, 2016. This International Photographic Exhibition is held in conjunction with Imaging USA, an annual convention and expo for professional photographers and several photographic associations.
A panel of 43 eminent jurors from across the United States selected the top photographs from more than 5,000 total submitted entries 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 have been published in the much-anticipated "Loan Collection" book and over 200 selected General Collection images have been published in the "Showcase" book by Marathon Press.
Titled "Always On My Toes", English's photograph was in the International Photographic Exhibition alongside other top photographic works from the competition and traveling and special invitational displays. These images constitute one of the world's largest annual exhibits of professional photography gathered simultaneously under one roof.
