2018 PPANI Awards

THE 2018 PPANI AWARDS

On Sunday 4th of February 2018, the PPANI held a special live judging event at the Hilton, Templepatrick for its qualifed members.

 Ahead of the 2018 PPANI awards in March, entrants were competing to become finalists across 14 various categories including creative, portrait and wedding disciplines.

Prints were judged and scored by Ross McKelvey, David Stanbury, Tracey Willis and David Campbell. The PPANI wishes to thank each judge for their time and efforts across a very long day of consideration.

 The following photographer’s images were chosen as the best for each category and went forward to the final on the 3rd of March 2018 where their prints were judged again by the world famous Yervant and a panel of select judges.
