Kendal Miller’s Photography Wins State, National Awards

On June 3rd, Kendal R. Miller received two first place awards in the 2017 Woman’s Press Club of Indiana Communications Contest. Miller is a former ArtsWORK Indiana featured artist. She lives in Dillsboro, Indiana (Ohio County), and serves as executive director of Rising Sun/Ohio County Tourism in Rising Sun, Indiana.

Miller received a first place in the Photography & Graphic: Single Photo, News or Feature category with her entry titled Memorial Day Service, Ohio County Courthouse. It was taken during the 2016 Memorial Day service at the Ohio County Courthouse in Rising Sun, Indiana.

An entry in the Single Photo, General Category titled, Along the Parade Route, Navy Bean Festival, also won first place. Both first place awards advanced to the National Federation of Press Women’s Communications Contest. Miller’s entry Memorial Day Service, Ohio County Courthouse placed second at the national level.

“This well-composed photo conveys emotion. By focusing on the subjects’ faces, the viewer is able to connect with the image and can almost hear the subjects singing. The flags in the background seem to surround the subject and make the viewer immediately award of the sense of patriotism at the event. The way this photo is cropped gives the sense of a much larger crown that has participated. I like how this photo makes a strong connection to the viewer,” said Miller’s judge who selected her photo as a national winner.

An award-winning professional photographer, Miller’s work is recognized as part of the Indiana Artisan Program, one of over a dozen state photographers whose work has received this status. She is also a multi-award winning Indiana Lt. Governor Hoosier Women Artist, recognized in 2016, 2015, 2014, and in 2012.

A ceremony to recognize the National Federation of Press Women’s Communications winners will take place in Birmingham, Alabama in September, 2017.
