Given in honor of Theresa Saylor who served the FPP selflessly as our Executive Director for 25 years (1974-1999). It is presented to a candidate who epitomizes the idea of service behind the scenes, not for the glory, but for the good of the FPP. Someone innovative, and always willing to help. The recipient may not be a current board member. This award includes full tuition to the Florida School.
Florida Memorial Service Award (Service) est 1996
Given in honor of the FPP members, past and present, who have passed on during the course of the year. Presented to one who has consistently worked and is currently working for the membership. They may be a support staff, service member, or even a non-FPP member. This award includes a $150 scholarship to be applied to tuition/registration for an FPP education event or FPP membership to be used within one year.

Presented in honor of FPP Member, Ed Robinson, for his many years of service to the FPP. The recipient will have attended the Florida School at least five years (not necessarily consecutively). They will have worked on several FPP committees, and consistently demonstrated a willingness to assist others and contribute to the greater good of the organization. The recipient is chosen by the Florida School Director and is presented at the Annual Focus Convention. A certificate is presented and it includes full tuition to the Florida School.
Presented in honor of Past President Dick Fowler (1976), this is presented to a relatively new FPP member who has volunteered on committees and shows an earnest interest in education and improvement. It includes full tuition to the Florida School.
The SEPPA Award, also known as the Southeastern Award, is provided by our Regional association, the Southeastern Professional Photographers Association. From 1967 to 1974 this award was always given for print competition. Since then it has been awarded for service. Again, this award recognizes outstanding service and dedication to the profession of photography and is one of the most prestigious awards presented at our banquet.
