Local Indianapolis Photographer’s Work Goes to International Exhibition 

Chris and Brandy Gronde of Gronde Photography are honored by peers and jurors for high-quality photography.

Indianapolis, IN 8/17/2018 — 2 Photographs created by Chris and Brandy Gronde of Gronde Photography in Indianapolis have recently been accepted into the General Collection of Professional Photographers of America’s 2018 International Photographic Competition. Gronde's work will be on display at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia, Jan. 20-22, 2019. This International Photographic Exhibition is held in conjunction with Imaging USA, an annual convention and expo for professional photographers.

A panel of 32 eminent jurors from across the United States selected the top photographs from nearly 5,073  total submitted entries at Gwinnett Technical College in Georgia. Judged against a standard of excellence, 2,622 images were selected for the General Collection and 513 (roughly 10 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 365 selected General Collection images will be published in the “Showcase” book by Marathon Press.

Titled “Start Your Engines" and "Counter-Strike Champion,” Gronde's photographs 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.
