Las Vegas, NV - March 9, 2009 - Gabrielle Mullinax, owner of Fullerton Photographics and Board of Directors member of Independent Photo Imagers, recently won $25,000 in the Custom Photo Gift Promotion Competition at PMA09. Competing against the Fujifilm U.S.A. national consumer site campaign introducing and the Canadian Magenta Photo Studio campaign, the Fullerton Photographics team submitted the winning custom photo campaign incorporating seven unique promotional pieces.

Centered on the theme "Celebrate, Create, Donate", the vibrantly colored campaign targeted Fullerton customers interested in raising donations for their favorite local charity.
