Vernon’s Brenda Hala is a recipient of the coveted Master of Photographic Arts.

The award, presented by the Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC), is bestowed upon its members whose images accepted into the annual PPOC Image Salon are consistently of a high quality. It is also meant to recognize the contributions made by them to the association, and to photography in Canada.

Hala, an association member since 1994, accepted the honour from PPOC chair Ken Frazer, at the annual awards banquet last April in Halifax. She has served on various provincial and regional boards, and has been photographing the people and places of the North Okanagan for more than 21 years.
