Cash prizes will be awarded, and in past years, sales have been made from this exhibition and will be encouraged, again, this year.

In 2002, Mr. Lawrence was inducted into the Mississippi Institute of Arts and Letters, from which he received the 2002 award in photography. In 2009, a retrospective exhibition of his work was presented at the Madison Morgan Cultural Center in Madison, Georgia. A retrospective of his photographs from 1984-2010 was mounted and exhibited at the Hudgens Center for the Arts in Atlanta, Georgia for October and November of 2010. In 2012, he served as juror of the Serenbe Photography Center’s exhibition at the Cochran Gallery in LaGrange, Georgia. Recent exhibitions of his personal work include Siena Italy in 2016, and at the Cochran Gallery of LaGrange and at the Rankin Center of Photography in Columbus, Georgia in 2015.
