It’s this time of each year for PPGBA to hold their annual award celebration, and it was a great surprise that my name appears to the Ted Gurney Portrait Award – it’s daunting and mysterious, until I had it in my hands, I still could not believe it…
On the plate, it says:
GIVEN IN PERPETUITY BY THE PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHERS OF THE GREATER BAY AREA. IN MEMORY OF TED GURNEY MASTER OF PHOTOGRAPHY TO THE CREATOR OF PORTRAIT OF THE YEAR.
I will keep it for one year, until the next award winner takes it over, then “Jasmine Wang” will be engraved to the plate as winner of 2008.
