..."first place doesn't suck"
I don't usually write about this stuff, but...
Tom Boyd is a cool dude who shoots for the Oregonian and whose BLOG I follow. On Saturday he won the photo portfolio award in the big boys division (large dailies) of the western region SPJ contest.
Me, I won it in the little guys division (non-daily). What's also cool is that this is the third year in a row I've won it. You can check out the portfolio I entered HERE if you like.
My boss wrote up a nice little thing about it on our website, which you can check out HERE if you like.
