A PEEK INTO ACCREDITATION PREPARATION

computer screen
(Submitted by Mark Laurie. Images by Glenn Krahulic)  - I was helping a PPOC member (Glenn Krahulic) to prepare his accreditation submission. The process might be helpful to you. Look at your body of work, what do you have the most of right now? What category will these images fit into? Rapidly go through them, select raw images with the finished images. Don't dwell too much on each image for its merits etc. Let your mind consider parts of the photo too. Do this quickly, and amass a large group of files.

PPOC 50th ANNIVERSARY NATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS GALA

PPOC LOGO
The Professional Photographers of Canada had big plans to celebrate their 50th Anniversary (1970-2020) along with their Awards Gala in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan April 24 - 27th. Unfortunately, those plans abruptly changed with the growing restrictions due to COVID-19. Instead of canceling the entire convention, it was decided to go ahead with the first (and hopefully last) Virtual Awards Gala that celebrates the successes and achievements of the dedicated service of their members as well as their photography skills. Many thanks to all those involved in producing this event.
