Anna Beaudry, a local photographer working in the Railtown district of Vancouver, was recently named PPOC-BC Photographer of the Year!
The announcement was made at the 71st annual awards ceremony held by the Professional Photographers of Canada – BC Region at the Anvil Centre in New Westminster. BC on Nov 5th.
“It’s really an honour to be considered for this prestigious award and I’m lucky to have been a finalist, considered alongside such incredibly talented photographers as Bobbi Carpino from Prince George, Greg Blue from Vancouver, and Larry Sherban from Richmond.” Beaudry said.
The competition featured entries from BC photographers in twenty different classes, including fine art, portrait, product illustration and architecture. An expert panel of qualified judges from across Canada juried the images that were on display during the PHOTOGraphie Festival last weekend. To be eligible for this prestigious award of Photographer of the Year, finalists must have all 4 images accepted into the salon show in a minimum of 2 categories.
“I’d really like to thank my fabulous clients Nita Lake Lodge, Corry Staff and Roadhouse Homes for trusting in my creative vision for their businesses. They provided me with unique opportunities to stretch and expand my visual skills so I could create these award winning photographs.”
Rima Dickson, PPOC-BC Salon Chair, said: “We were thrilled to see so many inspiring entries in the competition this year. The salon images clearly demonstrate the exceptional skill and quality that professionals bring to the medium of photography.”
