D-Photo hon­oured

New Zealand D-Photo - - CONTENTS -

D-Photo mag­a­zine was proud to re­ceive a high hon­our from one of the coun­try’s most ven­er­ated pho­to­graphic in­sti­tu­tions dur­ing its an­nual con­ven­tion this year.

Dur­ing the Pho­to­graphic So­ci­ety of New Zealand (PSNZ) Na­tional Con­ven­tion in Dunedin, at­tract­ing pho­tog­ra­phy clubs from across the coun­try, D-Photo was pre­sented with the Emma and Wil­liam McPher­son Award.

This ser­vice award is given to an in­di­vid­ual or or­ga­ni­za­tion in ac­knowl­edge­ment of ef­forts to foster in­ter­est and en­thu­si­asm in am­a­teur pho­tog­ra­phy.

Adrian Hatwell, D-Photo’s fea­tures edi­tor, says that the award is a grat­i­fy­ing ac­knowl­edge­ment of the pro­duc­tive and re­spect­ful part­ner­ship the pub­li­ca­tion is for­tu­nate to en­joy with the so­ci­ety.

“You couldn’t hope to find a more pas­sion­ate group of peo­ple than the ea­ger pho­tog­ra­phers who make

the PSNZ what it is,” he said. “That they value the work we do here means the world to the D- Photo team.”

The PSNZ praises the pub­li­ca­tion for be­ing a stal­wart sup­porter and me­dia part­ner over its pub­li­ca­tion his­tory, pro­vid­ing a valu­able plat­form for mem­bers to show­case work and de­velop pro­file.

“By pro­vid­ing qual­ity how-to fea­tures, prod­uct re­views, and in­spi­ra­tional pic­tures, the mag­a­zine gives its loyal and ever-in­creas­ing sub­scriber base the in­for­ma­tion and con­fi­dence they need to em­brace dig­i­tal cam­era tech­nol­ogy and make the art and craft of pho­tog­ra­phy part of their every­day lives,” the or­ga­ni­za­tion com­mented.

The Na­tional Con­ven­tion, held in late April, was the 66th such event that the PSNZ has hosted in its aim to pro­mote and ad­vance pho­tog­ra­phy as a craft through­out New Zealand.
