Johns Creek Photographer Named Gold Medalist at International Photographic Competition

Cindi Fortmann of Cindi Fortmann Photography is honored by peers and jurors for high-quality photography.

Johns Creek, GA - Cindi Fortmann of Cindi Fortmann Photography in Johns Creek, GA was named a Gold Medalist during Professional Photographers of America’s 2020 International Photographic Competition. Fortmann’s work will be on display at the upcoming Imaging USA, held virtually January 17-19, 2021. Imaging USA is one of the largest annual conventions and expos for professional photographers.

A panel of 36 eminent jurors from across the United States selected the top photographs from over 5000 total submitted entries at PPA Headquarters in Atlanta. Judged against a standard of excellence, 1706 images were selected for the General Collection and 865 (roughly 17 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.

The level of the award is determined by how many of those four images receive the highest possible honor: acceptance into the PPA Collection, which is displayed at photographic exhibitions, conventions and other photography events. Fortmann was named a Gold Medalist, meaning that two of their four merited images entered the PPA Loan Collection. In 2020, they were one of only 60 Gold Medalists.
