SCF Photography Instructor Earns Additional International Accolades

(Bradenton, Fla., July 1, 2021)Peter Gedeon, a photography instructor at State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF), recently earned four honorary titles from international photography organizations in Romania, Singapore, Bangladesh and Hungary. Gedeon is no stranger to the limelight; during the past year, he participated in 33 international competitions receiving 158 acceptances and 22 awards.

The Asia Photo Festival (APF) awarded him the Bronze Exhibitor of APF (BE.APF) title for his frequently visited virtual gallery, which ranked 20th among more than 400 exhibits. The BE.APF title was the highest recognition in the first annual APF event celebrating photography in Singapore and around the globe. The Campina Photographic Exhibitions Society (CPE), Romania, extended Gedeon the Artist of CPE title based on his successful participation through years past. The Agile Photographic Society (APS), Bangladesh, honored Gedeon with the Genius of APS title for his prolific contributions. And the World Association of Hungarian Photographers, Hungary, recognized Gedeon’s photographic work with the Photographer of the Year 2020 title.

Gedeon’s ongoing project, “Project Ag,” has also made waves, receiving an Honorable Mention Award in Hungary’s highly competitive Budapest International Foto Award. Ag is the symbol for silver in the periodic table, and this visual experience is an imaginary planet where “life is just a bit different.”

“Photography is a statement about the artists' choices, tastes, priorities, desires, dreams and, overall, about their cultural heritage and personalities,” said Gedeon. “These recent recognitions by the contemporaries and respected photography organizations confirm to me that I am on the right track – that my years of intense work are noticed and recognized.”
