Awards Are Great Validations

Local and National Awards...

Awards at first glance seem to be tooting your own horn. But in reality they are a great validation of the years of hard work and dedication to your craft. Those are especially note worthy when they come unexpected and unsolicited. In the last week I have received two such awards.
 

 

The first to arrive showed up in my email last week informing me I had been selected as the Winner for the 2021 Best of Auburn Awards in the category of Stock Photographs & Stock Photography. I have had a studio in the Auburn and Lewiston area since 2013, and had been a prolific photographer in the community for many years before that. It is with great pride that I will display this award in my studio.

AUBURN March 18, 2021 -- Jim Walker Photography has been selected for the 2021 Best of Auburn Award in the Stock Photographs & Stock Photography category by the Auburn Award Program.

Each year, the Auburn Award Program identifies companies that we believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and our community. These exceptional companies help make the Auburn area a great place to live, work and play.

Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2021 Auburn Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Auburn Award Program and data provided by third parties. Jim Walker Photography can be reached by email at [email protected].

The Auburn Award Program is an annual awards program honoring the achievements and accomplishments of local businesses throughout the Auburn area. Recognition is given to those companies that have shown the ability to use their best practices and implemented programs to generate competitive advantages and long-term value.

The Auburn Award Program was established to recognize the best of local businesses in our community. Our organization works exclusively with local business owners, trade groups, professional associations and other business advertising and marketing groups. Our mission is to recognize the small business community's contributions to the U.S. economy.

The next award I received came as a great surprise at the annual MPPA Awards Banquet held via Zoom this year. The National Award is a special honor that PPA Affiliates can award to recognize outstanding services in professional photography. It is available to state, regional, and national PPA Affiliates to honor an individual for his or her outstanding services to professional photography in their community.
