Local Photographer Named Gold Medalist at International Photographic Competition

Claudia Nix of NixPack Pet Photography is honored by peers and jurors for high-quality photography.

Naperville, IL – Claudia Nix of NixPack Pet Photography in Naperville and Oswego, IL was named a Gold Medalist during Professional Photographers of America's 2016
International Photographic Competition. Nix's work will be on display at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, TX, Jan. 8-10, 2017. This International
Photographic Exhibition is held in conjunction with Imaging USA, an annual convention and expo for professional photographers and is attended by photographers from all over the world.  These images constitute one of the world's largest annual exhibits of professional photography gathered simultaneously under one roof.

A panel of 46 eminent jurors from across the United States selected the top photographs from nearly 5,700 total submitted entries at Gwinnett Technical College in Georgia. Judged against a standard of excellence, just over 2,428 images were
selected for the
General Collection and 1,007 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.

The level of the award is determined by how many of Nix’s four merited images receive the highest possible honor: acceptance into the PPA Loan Collection, which is displayed at photographic exhibitions, conventions and other photography events. Nix was named a Gold Medalist, meaning that two of her four merited images entered the PPA Loan Collection. In 2016, she was one of less than 100 Gold Medalists.
