I am thrilled to announce that 2016 brought forth three awards for Ares Photography. In late summer, I submitted four photographs to the Association of Marketing and Communications Professionals organization’s MarCom Awards entry in portrait photography.
The foundation for AMCP began in 1995 as a means to honor outstanding achievement and service to the communication profession…The goal of the group was to provide an inexpensive, independent competition on an international level that would be fair, respected and open to everyone.”
I first found out about these organizations when I worked as a marketing and communications professional (before I started my photography business). I earned a few honors, but I never quite reached the highest status, which is a Platinum Award.
This year I was so incredibly thrilled to learn I not only earned an honorable mention and a Gold Award, but I found myself as a platinum award winner. Seeing my name and company listed alongside massive organizations, such as Nationwide Insurance, made me realize that photography is something I have excelled at (above anything else).
Special thanks go to my customers and friends who helped me kickstart this really amazing adventure!
