On 22 August 2019, the AIPP ACT Council held their post-APPA event, to celebrate the achievements of local photographers at the recent Australian Professional Photography Awards (APPA) 2019. Amongst the attendees were three finalists – Kelly Tunney (Wedding), Geoff Comfort (Commercial) & Kasey Funnell (Commercial).
All entrants were invited to bring along their prints to get further feedback and learn! This event was also to encourage other photographers to prepare for entry into next year’s awards. We discussed and explained more about the print awards rules & requirements. Our experienced members, including Kelly Tunney, Dan O’Day, Geoff Comfort, and Ben Kopilow gave advice, talking more in depth about their experiences and what you can achieve by entering.
What did the attendees think?
“These events are great, especially as a student member. I didn’t think I was ready to enter yet this year, but after watching the awards and coming to night’s like this, I just can’t wait for next year! Everyone is so encouraging and I really feel like I can do it now!” ~ Richard
“I really appreciate all the feedback and discussion on my prints I received tonight. I just can’t wait for next year now!” ~ Mark
