Maurer Photography received several awards at the 2008 Northern Light Professional Photographers of America (NLPPA) Convention in Fargo, ND. The regional event included the three states of SD, ND, and MN. Several key South Dakota awards were earned with the four images submitted, including:
The Highest Scoring Wedding Print
The Fuji Masterpiece Award
The Kodak Photo Excellence Award
The Ralph Richter Award
The 2008 South Dakota Photographer of the Year
"We are thrilled and thankful with the results of the competition. We submitted images from two weddings and two senior sessions from last year's clients, and feel very fortunate to have our everyday work recognized like this." Maurer was especially honored to receive the first ever Ralph Richter Award which was established in remembrance of a lifelong, endearing photographer who passed away recently. "Ralph was from Watertown, SD and was a great friend and mentor to many photographers in this region. It's a real special award."
Maurer Photography is not new to winning awards. Named to the Top-Ten photographers in Iowa in 2004, Lem received top honors for the highest scoring Wedding Print and the highest scoring Wedding Folio in subsequent years at conventions in Iowa, one of which garnered another Fuji Masterpiece Award.
