Well we’re excited! Nearly 2,500 prints from around the world were submitted to the 2011 Accolades of Excellence competition at the WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) conference in Las Vegas that ended today. So we figure coming in third in any category isn’t too bad, and besides, it leaves room to do better next year!
Below is our third place overall in the Animals Division, and our highest scoring print in the Wedding Division, which was considered for top honors in the “Bride and Groom Together” category.
Four of the five prints we submitted received Accolades of Excellence, and the judging in the Wedding Division (where most of our prints were entered) was done by the best in the business: Yervant, Bambi Cantrell, Jerry Ghionis, Roberto Valenzuela, Ryan Schembri and Dennis Orchard, just to name a few. We’re honored, we’re humbled, and we intend to do even better next year!
