HI Travel Tales wins multiple travel photography awards

by About Us

It’s been a good summer at HI Travel Tales when it comes to travel photography awards, with five of our photos each winning recognition on state and regional levels.

Therese Iknoian’s photo in the Museum of Islamic Arts in Doha, Qatar, was selected as a finalist in the prestigious California State Fair Photography/Fine Arts exhibit. That meant the photo was among the top 6 percent of all nearly 1,800 entrants. It was displayed in the Fine Arts hall during the month-long run of the State Fair in Sacramento, Calif.

Therese’s photo of performer and mustang trainer Bobbie Kerr at the 2018 Draft Horse Classic won a Best of Division and a blue ribbon.
