Six prints created by Lisa Cuchara of BREA Photos in Hamden have recently been awarded Blue ribbons (Award of Expert) at the Connecticut Professional Photographers of America's 2016 Annual Print Competition. Lisa's work was on display at the Sheraton Hartford South, March 18-20 2018, in Rocky Hill, CT. This exhibition was held in conjunction with the CTPPA convention, an annual convention of professional photographers and photographic associations. Lisa's portrait website can be viewed at www.BREAphotos.com and her creativity and teaching website can be viewed at www.photographybylisaandtom.com.
Lisa also won CTPPA Photographer of the Year in the ART/EI category (based on the total accumulated points) from all four quarterly competitions and CTPPA Photographer of the Year in the Creative category (based on the total accumulated points) from all four quarterly competitions. This is the third year in a row that Lisa has won CTPPA Photographer of the Year in those two categories.
A panel of five eminent jurors selected the top images from all of the submitted entries. Judged against a standard of excellence, Lisa's images were selected for awards — the best of the best. Lisa's photographs entitled "Frog on Calla Lily" (highest scoring print of the 2016 convention), "Veiled chameleon", "Prison tough", "Barn with star trails and first light", "Disoriented at the Insane Asylum" and "Left behind" all earned Award of Expert Blue ribbons. Lisa also won a Judge's Choice award for one of her photographs and the Kodak award for another one of her photographs. Her photograph "Frog on Cala Lily" was the highest scoring image at the annual print competition. The total of the her six photographs earned Lisa the 2016 CTPPA Treskunoff Award (for the highest total point score for the 6 prints entered at the CTPPA convention).
