Great Plains Journalism Awards...I got a first place.

A while back, I did a job for Sunflower Publishing that involved making images that depicted a day in the life of a Kansas Klingon.  We followed this Klingon around and documented her daily routine.  Who knew Klingons had to deal with the same day to day struggles as ordinary Earthlings?

Fast forward to just recently, this image series was entered into the Great Plains Journalism Awards, which is a regional contest honoring print, web, TV and magazine journalists for outstanding stories, photography and design. The eight-state competition includes Oklahoma, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and there were over 600 entries this year.

Anyway, my images won first place in the "Magazine Photography - Multiple" category.  Pretty cool.  Here's my page from the GPJA awards book and I've also included more of the images from this series.
