I am officially a sort-of award winning photographer. Today I learned that my slideshow focusing on Heidi Delisle and her Hoop the World project was a finalist in the Best of Gatehouse Media awards. The award ended up going to Lauren DeFilippo at the Randolph Herald, but second place is nice too.
Since this is a blog about my journey to a Pulitzer, I should be saying how a second place finish is below me, but I’m genuinely happy for the recognition so I’ll save that for my next sort-of award.
Also, congrats to Kathy Ragsdale of the Woburn Advocate for taking home Feature Writer of the Year. Now that is an award!
Number of photography awards I’ve received: .5
