While family and friends were in town this weekend I fielded several questions about the New Mexico Press Association awards conference last month. I told quite a few people I would attend, but most didnâ€™t know the outcome.
I guess thatâ€™s my fault.
I received two awards: Second Place for Continuing Coverage, and Second Place for Photo Series. Both were related to my work during the fire season in southwest New Mexico earlier this year. In addition, both were in class II competition, which means newspapers with smaller circulation.
Sorry itâ€™s taken so long for me to get the word out.
