BOULDER, Colo. – Photographer Inga Pae, whose artwork is available to public relations professionals, advertising consultants and their clients, has been named as a finalist for the Jacob Riis Award in the Worldwide Photography Gala Awards competition.

The contest attracted 388 portfolios from 305 photographers around the world, and Inga Pae is one of 25 entrants still eligible to receive the grand prize May 4, 2011.

She submitted her collection called “Female Nudes, Fog,” which can be viewed at the Inga Pae website, www.IngaPae.com. The photos explore the indefinite borders between the human body and its environment. Inga Pae’s artistic goal is to “create fresh visual symbols for your conversational diet;” and she offers four additional collections on her website, including one that presents the “shadow side” of the human condition, and another that suggests ways in which invisible forces affect our movement.

“I am pleased to know that such a distinguished jury has recognized my work,” Inga Pae said; “and I hope in viewing it, the panel engaged in some raw dialogue about the message within the work.”

Contest entries came from the United States and 31 other countries. The award was juried by Tim Anderson, publisher of Red Dog Journal and Cygnet Press, Albuquerque, N.M.; Larry Padgett, founder and former executive director of the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins; and Sucheta Das, photojournalist, Mumbai, India.

Last year’s edition of the Jacob Riis Award went to Kamil Vojnar, a Czech photographer living in France.
