Well, this was fun news to find out about. It has been brought to my attention that I recently received some awards for my 2012 editorial photography work at the Bozeman Daily Chronicle. The Society of Professional Journalists has a annual end-of-the-year contest that newspapers from across the country send their best work of the year in to compete against other news organizations. For the Pacific Northwest region (which includes Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Alaska) I was awarded First Place in the Portrait Photography section and Third Place overall in the Photography Portfolio section. Pretty cool. It’s always great to get a nod from your professional peers every once in a while. You can view the full list of winners here. Congrats to the staff of the Bozeman Daily Chronicle for crushing it this past year! And thanks to all of you for the continued support of my photography! -M
And here is the winning portrait and a link to my winning portfolio.
