Best Series Photo
In February 2020, I drove up to the airfield near Priest Lake to watch the 50th Priest Lake Sled Dog Race.
When I came home, I knew I had some winning photos. Award-winning photos, that is.
I submitted the blog post, He Was Mad He Didn’t Get to Run Further, into the 2020 Dog Writer’s Association awards, a long-running national competition.
It won! I was so stoked because winning an award for a series of photos demonstrates my ability for storytelling with my camera.
More awards with DWAA
In addition to winning the Maxwell Medallion for Best Series Photo in the Dog Writers Association of America awards, I’ve been a multicategory finalist for two years running.
