One award is for the category Blog-Writing. The judges, in making their decision, specifically considered three of my blog posts at Digging:
Up on the High Line, a skyline promenade
Gardens are for people, so put people in your garden photos
Color-drenched walls and desert beauty in Steve Martino-designed Palo Christi Garden
The other award is for the category E-Zine Article, and the recognized piece is “Placing Art in the Garden,” which I wrote for Garden Design magazine’s website.I’m honored by this recognition. According to GWA, “This national award recognizes individuals and companies who achieve the highest levels of talent and professionalism in garden communications. The Media Award winners have been judged by industry experts and show significant distinction and merits that exemplify exceptional work.”
A Silver Award is wonderful in itself, but it also places my work in a competitive judging process for GWA Gold Awards, the winners of which will be announced at the annual symposium this fall. Fingers crossed!
