SWPPA President
Robert Seat
M. Photog. Cr. CPP

In the tradition of the Southwest PPA we had a great District Competition.  Special thanks to Rich Newell and all the PPA crew for their fine work.  According to them we set the standard for the districts with the most images, most physical prints, and largest audience of the year.

Dwayne, John and the whole print crew did a terrific job.

Congratulations to all those who entered, and merited.  On a special note we had a record 47 people earn 4 for 4 pins.  By sending your images onto IPC you are all Bronze Finalists!  Let’s see how many Loan prints will be earned at the IPC this year.

 I really appreciate everyone who attended, and hope you enjoyed the incredible lineup of talent that was there.  We owe a great debt of gratitude to all the people who sponsored the speakers, because without their support events like this would not be possible. 

 Thanks to Miller’s Professional Imaging for the ice cream that we all enjoyed at both Saturday and Sunday’s events and to Bedford Camera for the “March Madness” games and prizes.

Convention chairs Jennifer and Joel Schmidt did an outstanding job.  My thanks to both of them for keeping everything running smoothly.  Christopher Whipple  for the audio/visual, he and Joel  were amazing at keeping the rooms ready for the various programs. It’s this type of devoted hard working volunteers that makes events like this work.

The 2016 Southwest Photo Expo is now in the history books and the 2017 conference is already in the planning stages.

 Next year SWPPA is going on the road!

 Join us for the “Shootout at the OK Corral.” The 2017 Southwest Photo Expo & Conference will be at the Tower Hotel Oklahoma City. District image judging will be onsite March 24- 25th with  the main programming from the 25th through the 27th.  We have a fantastic room rate of only $79 per night.  So bring your images, watch the judging, enjoy the talent, Trade Show, District GIA Awards, and share in the fellowship with all your fellow photographers.

See you there.
