IVRPA treasurer position available

Dear members,

The IVRPA will need a new treasurer as of January 1st, 2012.

Sandra Mexa has been our treasurer for two years now, and has done an amazing job of setting things in order.

Reminder about the Pano Awards

For those of you who might relish a bit of recognition, or even an actual prize...

The Epson International Pano Awards is still open, but there are only two weeks left for regular entries. You can enter until April 15th at the regular rates, or for two weeks after that during late entries at a higher fee.

http://www.thepanoawards.com/EnterAwards/

There is a special category (new this year) for 360/VR type panoramas. Not many people have entered yet in this specialty (versus over a thousand for regular panoramic photographs), so your chance of winning is pretty good.
