Kodak Gallery Awards and other IPPA awards

Well, I'm still trying to frantically recover from missing 4 days of work due to the IPPA annual convention and print competition. I know there are several of you out there waiting to hear how I did, so I thought I'd post my results for you. Here are each of my entries, and what they won.

"Meet me in the Orchard at Dawn" Kodak Gallery Award: also second place wedding, Regional level and second place album, State Level.

"Threads of the Past" Kodak Gallery Award: also, first place Pictoral, State Level

"Lead, Follow, or Get out of the Way" first place Photojournalism, State Level: second place Commercial, Regional Level.

"Splendor in the Grass" No awards.

The thing I consider the most satisfying, however, is the award I almost won. The photographer with the highest-scoring print case received Regional and State Photographer of the Year. The winner, Ted York, scored 331. My print case scored 330 points... So close! Congrats to Ted, though, as he is one of the nicest people I know, and totally deserves such a fitting title. Check out his work here. I did qualify for the Court of Honor, which consists of the top 5 Master Photographers, and top 5 General Photographers in the Intermountain Region.
