Print to Win a Sunset Print Award at Photo Competitions across the U.S.

Sunset Print Award
Trophies for the 2014 National Sunset Print Award winners. For a shot at the Grand Prize you’ll need to enter one of the 2015 competitions presenting a Sunset Print Award.

With the Southwest PPA 2015 District Competition underway right now in San Marcos, Texas, this seemed a good time to remind all photographers and print makers about the 2015 Sunset Print Award.

The next competition where you could win a Sunset Print Award is the PhotoPro Expo 2015 Print Competition in Covington, Ky., Jan. 21 (print submissions for the competition are due on Jan. 19).

Every winner at one of the local, state and regional competitions where the Sunset Print Award is being presented picks up a beautiful crystal trophy, a lapel pin and a $250 gift certificate for Sunset inkjet media. Plus, all winners are automatically eligible to compete in the year-end National Sunset Print Award (the National prizes will be announced soon).

Other print competitions currently scheduled include:

  • Connecticut Professional Photographers Association, Feb. 6
  • Photo North East 2015 Image Competition, Feb. 8
  • Mad City Photo Jam, Wisconsin Professional Photographers, Feb. 19
