I thought I was going to drop the phone when the person on the other line told me I won the Grand Award in the Premier category of the WPPI Awards of Excellence competition-- for this photo-- previously a topic of grand serendipity right here on this blog! It's an international competition, hundreds of entries by top photographers.
Yowza. Then I found out what the prize is... a $2000 gift certificate for photo stuff! Aw yeah!
Oh, and also received a Kodak Award of Distinction for having the second highest number of points scored in the entire competition. They sent me a gorgeous etched crystal trophy, now residing with pride on a tabletop in my office. I shot this photo while covering the Warped Tour last year for eMusiConnect.

Congratulations! That picture really kicks ass. Isn't it funny how something as simple as a silly little picture can get so much attention and stir up so many cool props from all sorts of people? You rock.
