At the 2009 PPANE convention, Susan White was presented with the George Hastings Memorial Award in recognition of her years of dedication to the craft of photography. It took me six years to get it!, said Sue. I printed all the images with my epson 2200 printer. I wanted to join the ranks of other photographers who have won it in the past, who look at photography not only as their profession but as their passion! The Hastings Awards is named after the very first President of Professional Photographers of New England, and is designed to test all the skills a photographer should have: proper composition, exposure, processing, printing (including print controls), retouching, mounting and finishing. In order to receive the award, the photographer submits prints for judging and accumulates points within a certain time period. When they've reached the required number of points, they are awarded a trophy.
