Congratulations to Gena and the other award-winning professional photographers for placing in January’s Laughlin Print Photography Competition hosted by the Professional Photographers of East Tennessee (PPETN), East Tennessee’s official trade association of professional photographers and the local affiliate for the Professional Photographers of America.
About the Laughlin Print Photography Competition
Each month, PPETN ‘Active’, ‘Studio’, and ‘Aspiring’ members can submit up to four 8″x10″ images to compete against the best Knoxville-area professional photographers and earn the title of East Tennessee Pro’s Choice Photographer of the Month. All ‘Active’ and ‘Studio’ members vote on the submissions, and the top three vote-getters are awarded. In addition to being Photographer of the Month, first place finishers typically win a door prize as well.
All vote-getters earn credits toward PPETN’s prestigious Pro’s Choice “Photographer of the Year” award. All award-winning images in our Laughlin Print Photography Competition are published in an annual gallery you can view here.
