10/26/11 206 W, 2 I - + 9 - 7 More Media Awards: Best News Story, Best Photo

Two more awards to announce, again from this year's International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) Media Awards for 2011. We already proudly announced the awarding of Honorable Mention for Best Blog in a posting on October 13. Well, with great humility and rapidly expanding ego, I am pleased to announce two additional wins for myself: Second Place for Best News Story on Web-Based Site, and Honorable Mention for [Best] Photo on News-Based Site.

The former is a FireNews.net story about the mass-casualty incident at the Raleigh Sheraton hotel on February 13, 2010. The latter is the FireNews.net photograph of a commercial structure fire on April 22, 2010. That was the dentist office on West Millbrook Road, just up the road from Blog Central. All three of the winning entries were submitted on behalf of IAFF Local 548, the Raleigh Professional Fire Fighters Association.

Congratulations to all the winners in all the categories. Thank you again for everyone's support. It remains my pleasure and privilege to serve our local emergency services in written, recorded, and photographic form. And winning contests is pretty cool, too. Maybe we'll start one on this blog. Annual award, for something or another. We'll call it the Mikey.
