Our first Virtual Image Competition of 2022 was held Monday, February 14 - yup Valentines Day! We had 55 excellent entries in 9 categories ~ telling many many different stories. As a first, we invited members of the Gold Coast Professional Photographers to join. Tho their images weren't included in Category or Best of Show Winners, they submitted powerful imagery and were a very welcome addition to the Competition! The judging was excellent, by 3 experienced PPC Judges: Frank Peele, Eleanor Gray, & John Powers - wonderful and enthusiastic critiques and a lot of excellent challenges! Kudos to all who entered, every single photograph had emotional meaning and impact.
All the Merit images can be seen on our Gallery Page: https://www.cippa.org/galleries
