Bobbi Carpino, a professional photographer from Prince George, was awarded Best in Class trophy in the Portrait of a Woman class for her image entitled Teardrops on My Window Pane.

She received her award from the 2013 Professional Photographers of Canada - British Columbia annual provincial image competition.

Carpino, who specializes in portraiture: child, infant, maternity, couples, wedding etc., has had three images accepted in the Provincial Image Salon.

This is PPOC-BC’s 68th year as an organization for professional photographers.

Carpino and another photographer from Prince George, Dana Friesen, just returned from the awards ceremony in Sun Peaks.

“We both received Best in Class Trophies for Portrait of a Woman for me and Freestyle for Dana for the region,” said Carpino.
