**Selfie With the ribbon... Maybe I'll scan it please excuse the bad cell phone image!**
So excited to announce that one of my images earned the distinguished image ribbon at the Spring PPLA image competition. I am an out of state member of Professional Photographers of Louisiana. I was enticed by their southern hospitality and enthusiastic love for the craft. not to mention the summer convention which is held in the French Quarter in New Orleans every year.
I also earned another image as deserving of a merit and 4 others were scored "above average". This is the first year that I am taking image competition seriously as I'm working toward more degree's with PPA.
My own state Competition I had 4 Images deserving of a merit and 2 rated at above average. No additional awards were given besides the scores. For PPARI .
I entered differant images in This competition as I did in PPARI between the two states and regionls I feel that I have a fairly strong collection of images to send to The International Image competition in June held by PPA.
The image that received this award is actually going to be reworked into a digital art piece and entered in the master artist category. I have a load of work cut out for me ... I have a feeling I will be up late nights for the next month working on competition images!
