I couldn’t talk about this before the announcement this morning, but Crystal has won another award.
A week or two ago, I submitted Crystal and Fall’s Dance to the folks at Photo Talk Radio for their monthly HP Monthly Photo Contest. The winner of this contest wins an HP Photosmart 475 Photo Printer. This is a slick little printer that prints 4×6 and 5×7 images, and can be run from batteries for work in the field — real nice device.
So I sent my images in, and kinda forgot about it.
Well, Thursday night, I got a call from Michael A. Garcia and Howard Lipin congratulating me on being selected as the January winner of the contest! To say I was floored is an understatement! I talked with them for more than half an hour, talking shop, and talking about what would happen next.
This morning, along with Gary Bernstein, they announced the win, and interviewed me on their internet radio program. What a thrill! Now, off their site, there’s a link to Crystal, as well as a link to the redesigned Colin Wright Photography site. My web server logs are showing that there’s a bunch of folks looking at my site as a result of this exposure — cool!
While this is all great, there’s an even cooler aspect to this. HP will get a copy of Crystal, and has rights for a year to use it in their promotional materials. I sure hope that happens!!!!
If you’d like to listen to the archive of the show, you can find it by clicking here. My piece is in the first part of the show, so it should be easy to find in the sound files. I think the archive of the show will be posted sometime tomorrow or Monday — enjoy!!!!
