Portrait Palooza 2017 Winner

The staff at the Carolina Inn has deemed a winner for Portrait Palooza 2017. The WPS would like to congratulate Maria Sollecito for her beautiful window light portrait. A $100 check is coming your way!

There were so many great images to select from and the judges had a hard time narrowing down a winner. A special thank you to The Carolina Inn staff for judging and hosting Portrait Palloza this year. They also have named a tie for second and a third place finisher to round out the competition (a first for Portrait Palooza). Below you will find their work for you to enjoy.
