I recently entered some of my work into the International Photographic Exhibition held by the Professional Photographers of America. I am proud to say that three of my images won merits this year! I had a lot of fun working to create these images and I’m proud to add them to my collection of award winning photography.

Local Photographer’s Work Goes to International Exhibition
Crystal Malta of Crystal Amber Photography is honored by peers and jurors for high-quality photography.
Photographs created by Crystal Malta of Crystal Amber Photography in Edgewood have recently been accepted into the General Collection of Professional Photographers of America’s 2017 International Photographic Competition. Malta’s work will be on display at the Gaylord Opryland Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee, Jan. 14-16, 2018. This International Photographic Exhibition 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.
Malta’s photographs will be 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.
Professional Photographers of America (PPA) is the largest international non-profit association created by professional photographers, for professional photographers. Almost as long-lived as photography itself, PPA has roots that date back to 1869. It assists 30,000 members through protection, education and resources for their continued success.
