Winners of the Imaging USA Kickstart Scholarship - PPA Today

Winners of the Imaging USA Kickstart Scholarship

This fall, PPA launched its third annual PPA Kickstart Scholarship. PPA granted four lucky winners the opportunity to attend free pre-convention classes at Imaging USA 2016 in Atlanta. They had the chance to choose between a full day of hands-on classes or a two-day business workshop.

All of the winners are very excited about this amazing opportunity, and two of these four PPA photographers will be attending Imaging USA for the first time. We introduce to you the 2015 scholarship winners and some highlights from conversations following their winnings:

"Imaging USA will help me be more by just being there. I can't even imagine the vibe of the place, the people that are there and the fact that everyone that will be there has a story and something in common with me. Anything and everything that happens during Imaging USA will undoubtedly change my life and my studio. "

"I am hoping that by taking a pre-convention class I will learn enough helpful tips to make my studio the best in my residing area. That's my goal for 2016."

"The best part about winning this scholarship is that I would not have had the extra money to take a pre-convention class, so thanks to the PPA scholarship, now I can take an in-depth class that will help me take my photography business to the next level!"

"The biggest thing I am hoping to take away from Imaging USA is learning about new information through the Hands-On classes. That will be an amazing opportunity for me to learn next to a master photographer. After that are the courses, I've already bookmarked the ones I'm going to attend and researched all about the speakers I want to see. Lastly, I'm looking forward to speaking with the vendors and learning about the new equipment and techniques."
