A panel of 43 eminent jurors from across the United States selected the top photographs from nearly 5,000 total submitted entries at Gwinnett Technical College in Georgia. Judged against a standard of excellence, just over 1,800 images were selected for the General Collection and 682 (roughly 7 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.

Titled, “A Warm Heart”, Long’s photograph 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.  Long created this image during a fundraiser, ‘Santa Paws’, that she held at her studio for a deserving local animal shelter.  She is thrilled to have the honor of being a part of this Loan Collection for two consecutive years.
