Not to be forgotten, there were many Honorable Mention awards granted to our members as well.

When combined with the category awards, the RDPW members represented close to two-thirds of the overall winners. Impressive!

Congratulations to all of you for the time and effort that goes into the printing, matting, and framing of your photographs. It was an outstanding exhibit that truly showcased the talent and creativity of our group.
