Hanging Four!

I just received my results for the national PPA print competition I entered this year. All four of my images were accepted into the General Collection of the 117th International Exhibition of Professional Photography. Because all of my prints received this recognition, I will also be receiving the Photographer of the Year award at Imaging USA: an annual convention of over 8,600 professional photographers and several photographic associations. My work will be on display at the Phoenix Convention Center, January 11-13, 2009, in Phoenix, Ariz.
Here's what PPA has to say about the competition: Approximately 4,514 entries were submitted to Professional Photographers of America’s (PPA’s) International Print Competition, from which a panel of more than 40 eminent photographers from across the United States selected the images that would comprise the 2008 General and Loan Collections...the most prestigious awards. These images constitute the world’s largest annual exhibit of professional photography gathered simultaneously under one roof.
I've often heard of the prestige of "hanging four" (having all four of your images accepted) but I never dreamed it would happen to me this year. Thank you so much to my beautiful models!
