This last week Tony Colangelo in Victoria, BC told me that his photos helped four of his clients win the top prize in the 2015 CARE Awards. The CARE awards are a big event for the Victoria Residential Builders Association. Tony said:
Last week, the largest professional builders' association on Vancouver Island (the Victoria Residential Builders Association) announced its 2015 CARE Awards at a very large gala celebration at the Empress Hotel, in Victoria. The event is like the "Oscars" for the building community; and, just like the Oscars, the awards are broken down into many different categories, based on the type of build/renovation/work that was done. In order to get nominated for these Awards, builders, interior designers and millworkers/cabinet makers have to submit photos of their respective projects, as part of a very intensive application process. The CARE oversight committee then selects finalists for each category, with winners announced in the Fall... my images contributed to numerous builders, interior designers and cabinet makers receiving Finalist nominations in 13 categories (out of approx. 45 categories in total.) I'm especially proud that clients in four of those categories went on to win the top award: the Gold CARE Award! See the four images above.
If you are a PFRE Flickr forum regular you will recognize some of these images. Tony has posted some of them to the PFRE Flickr group in the last few months. Congratulations Tony! Great images! By the way, if you want to learn how to create images like this Tony is a PFRE Coach so you can contact Tony via the PFRE Coaching page for some one-on-one coaching.
