Savvy Studios Stellar Successes!

At this year's Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) Queensland Division Awards, Savvy Studios experienced some of their greatest successes to date and scored not only, Emerging Photographer of the Year but also one of the more hard fought categories, Qld Illustrative Photographer of the Year.

Alex entered the Queensland event for his first time submitting eight images. He picked up an amazing seven awards including a Gold Award, two Silver Distinctions and four Silvers.

Our regular second shooter and star talent, Serena Hodson, also made a remarkable debut at the awards, entering six images and being awarded for all six prints! Serena picked up a Gold Award, one Silver Distinction and four Silvers. Serena went on to win, Qld Emerging Photographer of the Year, among some of the strongest entries the category has yielded to date. Serena has her own studio but look out for a new exciting project coming to Savvy Studios very soon that will feature Serena doing what she does best.

Like Alex, I also entered eight images and was awarded with seven. I ended up with a Gold Award, one Silver Distinction and five silvers and received the accolade of, 2010 Qld Illustrative Photographer of the Year. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the sponsor of the Illustrative Category, Photo Mounts and Albums.

The Epson AIPP Qld Awards received 545 entries from professional photographers across the state. The judging panel consisted of some of the top photographers within Australia and New Zealand. Over the weekend only three Gold Distinctions and ten Golds were awarded out of the 545 prints so we are thrilled that three of the golds were awarded to the photographers at Savvy Studios.
