The Pioneer Valley Photographic Artists typically presents an annual award to a deserving recipient in recognition of outstanding contributions and/or service to the community in the field of Photographic Arts and for enriching the Photographic Arts to the benefit and enjoyment of all in the community. Although the award is typically given annually, occasionally there may be a year in which no award is given.
The Award is generally given to a single awardee but it has been given to multiple recipients in cases where joint efforts resulted in an identifiable project that affected a community.
Past recipients who we have honored are:
Anne Tiberio - 2006
Alfredo DiLascia and Keith Sikes - 2007
Les Campbell - 2008
Gene LaFord - 2009
Stan Sherer - 2010
