PPANI Awards 2014

During the day weheld our showpiece wedding seminar, this year hosted by award winning photographer Ross Harvey. Click here to view more details on this seminar.

The Awards are the most prestigious in Northen Ireland; the Professional Photographers Association of Northern Ireland celebrates and identifies individuals that have achieved outstanding success through their superb images and gives every qualified member the opportunity to compete against other members for the title of PPANI Photographer of the Year.

This gives professional photographers the opportunity to benchmark their work and development against a recognised framework. Winning an award also demonstrates commitment to continual personal development and provides great PR opportunities.

The Awards are open to fully qualified members of the Association. There were 9 different sections to cover all types of professional photography and the Licentiate Award honoured one of our new members work. This year we also had a new award - judged by non-photographers - called the Style Award - which was awarded to the most stylish image of all of the 45 finalists.

Here are the winners from this years competition...
