Award season for the movies is just wrapping up…but its just getting started in the world of professional portrait photography. The annual convention of the Virginia Professional Photographers Association just wrapped up last week and with the close of the convention came the Awards dinner for the Print Competition that opened the convention. Judging was tough this year and the number of images awarded Blue Ribbons was significantly down from previous years, but through it all, Jeff Bowman still brought home 3 Blue Ribbons…from which one was also awarded a Court of Honor and two others gained Best in Category awards. Jeff also narrowly missed out on winning the coveted Photographer of the Year award…soooo close!
Here are Jeff’s 3 Blue Ribbon prints, with their awards listed below each one…to see the rest of the Commonwealth Team’s competition entries, hop on over to the Commonwealth Photography Page on Facebook.
The Next step is to prepare for regional competition at the end of March in Atlanta…we’ll keep you posted on how the Commonwealth Team fares at SEPPA!
