Award-Winning Portraits :: Detroit Competition

posted in: News | 1

Yesterday evening, I was in Detroit for a local print competition, held by the Detroit Professional Photographers’ Association (DPPA). As usual, I helped behind the scenes (tallying and recording scores this time around), and got to have a unique perspective as events unfolded. I entered five portraits and one landscape. The landscape received a red ribbon (award of merit), and all five portraits received blue ribbons (awards of excellence)!






It was very exciting, especially since most of the portraits were images I created for you — my clients. I also went out on a limb and submitted a maternity self portrait (which received one of the five blue ribbons I took home). Over 100 images were entered into the competition, and at least one of mine made it into the top five highest scoring prints.
