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.
