Arkansas Professional Photographers Association National Award Recipients
Volunteers truly are the lifeblood of the Professional Photographers of America and its Affiliates like the Arkansas Professional Photographers Association. Every association has those extraordinary volunteers whose efforts on behalf of the Affiliate and its members deserve special recognition.
Seeking a way to thank these individuals, Professional Photographers of America created the National Award in 1958. Each year, PPA makes this prestigious award available to state, regional, national and international affiliates - who then present it to deserving individuals.
The highest honor granted by a PPA Affiliate, it recognizes those whose support for photography goes far beyond any regular expectations or contributions. The simple inscription on this plaque reads "for meritorious contributions to professional photography" - but we know that this award means far more than that.
APPA honors those special individuals here whom we have been presented this award.
The following recipients have been awarded The National Award
