Lisa's "Frog on Calla Lily" photograph was awarded the Kodak Gallery Award!

How exciting!
I just got an email that my "Frog on Calla Lily" photograph was awarded the Kodak Gallery Award!
It will be eligible for the Kodak Elite award at the annual PPA Imaging convention in January


Presenting the Annual KODAK Gallery

The KODAK Gallery Awards were introduced in 1985 as a way to honor
and promote the importance and value of excellence in professional photography.

KODAK Professional products and services have always represented imaging excellence for professional photographers. We will continue to work to elevate the importance of professional quality imaging within the industry. It’s a connection we’re pleased to make. Therefore, we are delighted once again to salute and support outstanding professional photography and photographers by presenting our annual Gallery. 

The Gallery Awards are judged on a state or regional basis, with winners going on to compete at the national level for the Gallery Elite Award. Gallery Awards will be presented, throughout the year, at the annual Professional Photographers of America (PPA) district and state conventions — in addition to those events’ customary awards. The annual Gallery Elite Award will be judged prior to the national PPA conference and trade show and those winners will receive a KODAK Gallery Elite Award representing the “best of the best.”

A district and/or state organization may award one (1) trophy. Each entry must have achieved the minimum 80-point criteria to be considered for a KODAK Gallery Award. The primary purpose of the awards is to recognize and further the use of professionally-printed photography, especially if it utilizes KODAK PROFESSIONAL Media. Therefore, Gallery and Gallery Elite trophies are intended to be awarded for prints and printed albums. Digital-only images and video albums (e.g., CD, DVD), are not within the scope of these awards.
