…Jessica Wakefield! That’s right folks…I managed to merit (score of 80 or higher) on 4 of the 6 prints that I submitted to Southern Pro Exposure, held by Professional Photographers of Louisiana, in New Orleans 2 weekends ago. In addition to the merits, I also won 2 distinguished print awards as well as 1st place in the photojournalism general category & best 1st time entrant! (One of the images won this spring for 1st place print in commercial work as well as a judges choice award)
This print competition was judged by photographers from various places in the USA including Chicago, Kansas City, Orlando & Lubbock. It is a great honor to not only have images merit, but also to be recognized for additional awards by these amazing photographers.
Thank you to everyone who supports me in my photography endeavors! I can’t wait to enter more print competitions. Now we just need to get Tony to submit his work next year!!
