Enough About Art, Lets Talk About Me

I interrupt your regularly scheduled blog post to make a small announcement:

trophy-tour

I won some stuff!

This past weekend I was presented with three awards for my writing in Richmond Home from the past year at the Virginia Press Association Awards. No, unfortunately the awards were far, far less weighty than the above trophy, but hey, a piece of paper with a gold-ribbon sticker is cool, too. I mean, I’ll take it.

So what did I win? 

Glad you asked. Well, first there was a 2nd Place in Arts Writing for “Ones to Watch,” a story about emerging Richmond artists to collect before they hit it big, which appeared in R.Home’s Art At Home issue. Looking to start a collection? Check it out. Really. (Richmond’s turned out THREE MacArthur Geniuses in the last five years.)

Then there was a 2nd Place in Leisure, Lifestyle or Home Writing for “Sail Away,” a story I wrote about Stove Point, a close-knit sailing community on the Chesapeake Bay where some lucky Richmonders vacation.

And last but not least, a 1st Place in Headline Writing for an entry that included five headlines I wrote during 2008. Maybe I can thank my creative-director Dad for inheriting his snappy-header gene. Two of my favorites were: “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree: Kim Vincze’s glamorous style revs up clients’ homes each holiday season.” and “Couture Digs: Enter the world of fashion and stay for a while at these designer-decorated hotels.”

O.K. I’m done patting myself on the back. Thanks for indulging me.
