Professional Photographers of Colorado Awards and Fellowship Medallions

Fellowships with PPC

The point system and degree program are designed to encourage, recognize and reward those who demonstrate outstanding imaging skills and provide service and education to the profession. The program helps affiliate organizations attract program talent and encourages the individual to learn and achieve. Only PPC members will be awarded points, and only specified points can be applied toward a degree.

In January 1999, the PPC Board of Directors adopted a new degree program. The degree program includes the following: Colorado Service Fellowship of Photography (S.F.) and Colorado Educational Fellowship of Photography (E.F.) and the Colorado Photographic Fellowship of Photography (P.F.). A review committee consisting of Fellowship chairperson(s) current and past Fellowship recipients has been established to review the Degree applications to help with points toward Fellowships.

Professional Photographers of Colorado Columbine Pin award

Columbine Pin

PPC is dedicated to serving its members and we recognize our members’ help in serving the organization. This unique pin symbolizes dedication and participation every time it’s displayed on a lanyard. 

Purpose and Goal
The purpose of the award is to promote member participation, encourage personal growth as a photographer and teacher and to reward simple acts of service that help our events run well.

When is the Columbine Pin Awarded
The Columbine Pin is awarded annually at the PPC Holiday Party in December and given to all PPC members in good standing who have earned 15 or more points in our award scheme in any given year. The award runs separately from the Fellowship Award. Members can earn a Columbine Pin every year they participate. Points do not carry over.
