|

Professional Photographer magazine, the official magazine of Professional Photographers of America (PPA), received 10 “GAMMA” awards (including one for its website) from the Magazine Association of the Southeast (MAGS) on April 26, 2007.

Of special note was the Service Journalism Gold award won for the Studio Management Services (SMS) Benchmark Study, made possible through months of research, writing, and editing by Scott Kurkian, CFO of PPA, Ann Monteith, Past Chairwoman of the Board of PPA, Leslie Hunt, Professional Photographer’s Features Editor, and the entire SMS team. The judge described the special report as “compelling, focused, specific, impeccably researched and relevant to its audience.”
