Within the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) each state has their annual awards judging (QPPA)and presentation evening. I have been on the QLD council for 5 years and President for 2 of them and it was time for me to step down. So the awards night was very special for me, to give out the Presidents awards to the people whom I felt went above and beyond their call of duty and the Lifetime Achievement Award. To feel privileged to have been a part of such a great Institute and to help the members be the best they can be through our accreditation and Professional Development.
After many, many hours a venue was decided upon which was the amazing QLD Museum at Brisbane’s Southbank. We held our gala night in the Great Hall where ancient fossils and the Museum’s Muttaburrasaurus gazed at us. Such an incredible atmosphere.
We awarded the states best in categories such as Wedding, Wedding Album, Portrait, Family, Documentary, Illustrative, Science and Nature, Travel, Commercial, Highest Scoring Print, Student, Emerging and Professional Photographer of the year Photographers.
Here are a couple of photos to showcase our night. Thank you
