The latest honour came after Learmonth had three prints accepted for the competition, including an architectural print that won “merit” status in both B.C. and Canada,  a second that won best in class in figure study and a third that will be hung in the National Salon.

Learmonth’s photographic art is a fusion of photography, painting and illustration, and has been published nationally and internationally.

She owns Amber Light Photography and Design and will receive the award at the association’s upcoming banquet.
