Boise Photographer Named Silver Medalist at International Photographic Competition
Kelly Zimmerman of Cherished Images Fine Art Portrait Photography & CsiPhotoDesign is honored by peers and jurors for high-quality photography

Boise, ID – Kelly Zimmerman of Cherished Images Fine Art Portrait Photography & CsiPhotoDesign in Boise, Idaho was named a Silver Medalist during Professional Photographers of America’s 2015 International Photographic Competition. Zimmerman’s work will be on display at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia, Jan. 10-12, 2016. This International Photographic Exhibit is held in conjunction with Imaging USA, an annual convention and expo for professional photographers and several photographic associations

A panel of 43 eminent jurors from across the United States selected the top photographs from nearly 5,200 total submitted entries at Gwinnett Technical College in Georgia. The level of the award is determined by how many of those four images receive the highest possible honor: acceptance into the PPA Loan Collection, which is displayed at photographic exhibitions, conventions and other photography events. Zimmerman was named a Silver Medalist, meaning that one of her four merited images entered the PPA Loan Collection. In 2015, she was one of only 115 Silver Medalists.

About PPA:
Professional Photographers of America (PPA) is the largest international nonprofit association created by professional photographers, for professional photographers. Almost as long-lived as photography itself, PPA’s roots date back to 1869. It assists more than 28,000 members through protection, education and resources for their continued success.
