Yes, Professional Photographer won the Magazine Association of the Southeast's highest award, the Grand GAMMA, along with fourteen other GAMMA awards on April 30, 2009. These additional awards included the Gold top spot for General Excellence, Best Single Issue, Best Magazine Website, Best Cover, and Best Photography.
"Professional Photographer...creates a stunning visual impact of print. Add to that the service factor, and you have a magazine that starts and directs a conversation with its intended audience and does that extremely well," said Samir Husni, Ph.D, one of the GAMMA Awards judges. "All things considered, Professional Photographer--through its editorial content, photography, and design--rises to the top of the pot as the cream of the crop."
