Paul Kennedy Award

The Paul Kennedy Award was established in 1981 to be given for “Outstanding Service to the Profession.”

Only twenty-five (25) of these awards were made before the mold was defaced. The medallion is made from silver reclaimed from film and paper chemicals that are used to produce the product of the profession—photographs.

The silver used to make the medallions was donated by Visual Productions (now McKenna Color Lab) of San Diego.

The medallion is inscribed with the name of Paul Kennedy, Sr., the first and thirteenth president of the Professional Photographers of California, and each has been numbered.

The award may be given to an individual or to a family member.

The individual does not have to be a PPC member.

This medallion need not be awarded every year.
