Fatima NeJame, president and chief executive officer of the world renowned Palm Beach Photographic Centre (PBPC), today announced the prize winners of its current exhibition: 22nd Annual MEMBERS' SHOW. Running Through October 27, 2018.
Best In Show went to EJ Morales from West Palm Beach for his photograph Encounter. Morales received the First Place cash prize of $950.
The Second Place winner is Cynthia Conley of West Palm Beach for I Wish I Were A Lion, and Third Place went to Sheryl Kittrell of Juno Beach for Chai Tea Time. They both received free tuition for a FOTOfusion Passport or a Master Workshop.
The Juror for the 22nd Annual Members Show was media industry leader and photojournalist Scott Mc Kiernan. His leadership of the ZUMA Press family of companies, as well as decades of wide-ranging experience in photography has proven to be instrumental in establishing one of the world's largest editorial photo news agencies, ZUMA Wire, which was launched in 1992 as the internet's first database for editorial pictures. Today, ZUMA Wire Service is the agent to the world's most respected newspapers and magazines with over 33+ million images online. In 2016, Mc Kiernan won the prestigious Jim Gordon Award from the NPPA for Editor of the Year.
Also on display now at the Photo Centre is The FOTOcamp Exhibition, showcasing works by the talented young people, ages 10 to 17, who participated in this summer's FOTOcamp for Kids. This year's FOTOcamp winner is Allison Robbert (14) of Wellington, who received an SLR camera. Second place went to Jamie Jerchover (15) of Wellington, and third place went to Stephanie Barnard (16) of Boca Raton - both of whom received a free family membership at the Photo Centre.
