Winning an Award
I'm really pleased to have picked up another award from the Outdoor Writers and Photographers Guild, at the Annual Dinner held at the National Mountain Centre, Plas y Brenin in Snowdonia, last Saturday (Oct. 25th)
I was Highly Commended in the Feature category (sponsored by Crimson Publishing Ltd) for my Classic Ride piece on the Isle of Man published in Singletrack magazine. The judges commented: “This had a really strong style. The author's personality and humour came through clearly and there was a good balance between the background description and history, and the ride itself. A really good read!”

What made this award unusual was an element of synchronicity. Earlier in the day I'd organised and led a a workshop on the challenges and opportunities of new media and one of the speakers – without any prompting or collusion from me – mentioned Singletrack as an example of a mag that is doing things right. And then that same evening I learned that I'd been Highly Commended for a feature published in the same magazine. Sweet.
Although the award was specifically for writing, I did illustrate the feature as well, so here are some images from that shoot.
