Warrensburg, MO.

A panel of 36 eminent jurors from across the United States selected the top photographs from over 5,000 total submitted entries at PPA headquarters in Atlanta.

The Imaging Excellence Collection images will all be published in the much-anticipated " Excellence Collection" book by Marathon Press.
Titled "Still Your Sister", McCall’s photograph will be in the International Photographic Exhibition alongside other top photographic works from the competition and traveling and special invitational displays.
