Congratulations to Corin Bishop AIPPA who won the overall IPPA National Portrait Day Award for 2014.

The NPD 2014 Awards, sponsored by Canon, took place at the Mansion House in Dublin on May 26th.

Corin's image was taken during the charitable initiative for this year's National Portrait Day Campaign which raised funds for the ISPCC.

The runners up were Brendan Lyon LIPPA and Gosia Tuznik LIPPA.

This year IPPA members raised 42,000 for the ISPCC and collectively just over 180,000 has been raised for charity during the last three years by members of the public donating 25 in exchange for a professional portrait experience. IPPA members give their time each year to this initiative and 100% of the proceeds go to charity.
