This year I was unable to attend the 2006 Wedding & Portrait Photographers Conference in Las Vegas (WPPI). Since I couldn’t go I thought I’d enter their 16×20 print competition. Once I looked up all the info online I realized I had only 2 weeks to get my images printed and mailed to them before the deadline. I quickly chose the two images below and entered them in the Pet/Animal Category. I’m happy to say that both of them received an Accolade of Excellence! This is really exciting since over 2500 print entries were entered in 19 different categories, from photographers around the world. I’m looking forward to entering the 8×10 print competition this year as well. Enjoy!
