Sonya Gilbert, CPP of Sonya Gilbert Fine Portraiture is honored by peers and jurors for high-quality photography.⠀
Oak Park, IL – Sonya Gilbert, CPP of Sonya Gilbert Fine Portraiture in Oak Park, IL was named a Bronze Medalist during Professional Photographers of America's 2019 International Photographic Competition. Gilbert’s work will be on display at the Gaylord Opryland Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee, January 19-21, 2020. This International Photographic Exhibit 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.⠀
Each artist can submit up to four images in a category. Gilbert was named a Bronze Medalist by earning a merit—a mark of quality and honor—for each of the four images included in her entry case to the International Photographic Competition. This is the most prestigious competition of its kind, where images are judged based on a standard of artistic excellence, not against each other. In 2019, Gilbert was one of only 170 Bronze Medalists. Gilbert was also named a Bronze Medalist in 2017.
