SARASOTA, FL — The newly constructed marketing area on the S-One Holdings home office’s fifth floor has been transformed into the National Sunset Print Award gallery in preparation for the judges who will choose the national grand prize winner on Nov. 13.
Four of the five judges are Professional Photographers of America-sanctioned judges. The fifth is a director from the Ringling College of Art and Design, located in Sarasota. Twenty-nine entries that won local and regional Sunset Print Awards, sponsored by LexJet, were automatically entered into the grand prize competition. The winner will receive airfare for two to Sarasota, with lodging at Lido Beach resort for three days and two nights, a $500 Visa gift card and national recognition. Second and third place winners receive a $500 and $300 Visa gift card respectively.
Prior to the official judging, S-One employees were given the opportunity to guess the judges’ top three picks. The three employees who come the closest to the judges’ selections will win a variety of prizes.
