NYIP Student Successes

Many NYIP members have won prestigious awards in contests and photo fairs or have had their work exhibited in galleries. Other NYIP members are building careers shooting weddings, press events, corporate and commercial assignments, or have received professional recognition and publication of their photos. Here are some recent NYIP success stories:

 Congratulations to John who had four photos accepted into competition at the San Diego County Fair. He won First Place in the Macro category and an Honorable Mention in the Theme category: Race to the Fair. John says it was the first time he entered a contest and he says that "NYIP was a contributing factor to my first-time-out success." We suspect he'll be winning more contests soon!
