APA SF would like to offer a heartfelt thanks to everyone who attended our 20th Annual Something Personal Exhibition Premiere & Holiday Party on December 11, 2017, at SOMArts Bay Gallery.

About 500 Creatives, Photographers, Production Professionals and friends showed up to enjoy the Judges' top 100 original personal images on display from 72 talented photographers, listed below. (The online gallery contains those 100 images, plus 100 more, this year).

We want to extend our gratitude to everyone who participated by entering the contest, and especially to the Judges (listed below) who selected the 200 finest images from a large number of entries.

A special thanks also to our sponsors (please see below) who helped us put on another very successful show. We simply couldn’t continue to present such a quality event without their generous support.

Also, we want to express our deep appreciation to the many volunteers who helped with this year's exhibition and party, most notably: Frederic Neema, Lupine Hammack, Steve Babuljak, John Lund (and Steph), as well as Elizabeth Grivas.

APA SF would like to congratulate the 2017 Exhibitors and remind everyone to keep creating personal work throughout this year. There’s a good chance you could be recognized in 2018 for creating Something Personal.

If you are interested in purchasing a print, please contact the photographer directly; their individual websites are linked within the online gallery.
