08/15/07 224 W - + 11 - 16 IAFF Media Awards

Earlier this year, the Raleigh Professional Fire Fighters Association sponsored the submission of some FireNews articles to the International Association of Fire Fighters 2007 Media Awards. Entered for the category Best Story on Web-Based News Site, the submitted articles included stories about the Raleigh Fire Department, with text by Mike Legeros and photography by Legeros, Lee Wilson, and Jeff Harkey.

The IAFF confirms that the article New Tabletop Simulator, which was published on FireNews on January 16, 2006, won Honorable Mention in the above category. The cited winner is Mike Legeros, who wrote the story text. Though accompanied by excellent photos by Lee Wilson, we're told winners in Best Story on Web-Based News Site were judged on text alone. The IAFF does not presently have an “internet photo” category.

Mike Legeros thus extends his award to Lee Wilson, to share in this accomplishment. The incentive and information for Mike’s reporting extends directly to Lee, who provided a steady stream of encouragement and added info. The award-winning article would not have been written without both the interest and participation of Lee Wilson. He helped make it happen.

The announcement of this and the other 2007 Media Awards will appear on the IAFF web site shortly, we're told, and will also appear in the IAFF magazine. Maybe another year they will add an “internet photography” category.
