You have no idea how good it felt typing that title! I entered WPPI’s (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) 16×20 print competition this year. This was my first time ever entering a print competition. Why not enter an international print competition – go big or go home – right?! There were approximately 3,500 entries from all over the world in various categories. Approximately 500-600 of these entries receive Accolades of Excellence and are hung at the convention.I was thrilled to have two of my portraits receive Accolades of Excellence and completely humbled by having my prints hung for display at an international level.
Here are my two award winning portraits:
The convention was fabulous, overwhelming, inspiring and refreshing! I attended many classes and my head is full of incredible ideas I can’t wait to implement. I loved the tradeshow and being able to see all of the vendor products first hand. I spent a ridiculous amount of money at the tradeshow! I can’t wait for all of my new goodies to arrive in the studio! I have to admit though- my favourite part about WPPI was reconnecting and meeting amazing photographers from all over. I had such an incredible time with these girls….love them all so much! You know who you are!
