Seth Mayer of SETH MAYER Fine Art Imagery is honored by peers and jurors for high-quality photography.

San Diego, CA 09/2019 — Three Images created by Seth Mayer of SETH MAYER Fine Art Imagery in San Diego have recently been accepted into the General & Loan Collection of Professional Photographers of America’s 2019 International Photographic Competition. Mayer’s work will be on display at the Gaylord Opryland Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee, January 19-21, 2020. This International Photographic Exhibition is held in conjunction with Imaging USA, an annual convention and expo for professional photographers.

A panel of 36 eminent jurors from across the United States selected the top photographs from over 5,200 total submitted entries at PPA headquarters in Atlanta. Judged against a standard of excellence, 2,654 images were selected for the General Collection and 625 (roughly 12 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 by Marathon Press.

Titles, “Guiding Light” (Loan Collection), “Research at Sea” (Loan Collection) and “The Lookout” (Merit Collection),  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.
