Another So-So Awards Season~

Okay, I remember this lukewarm rah-rah from last year all too well. And I have to say, I feel a little better about this year's industry awards, although not much.

I was definitely disappointed that neither the website nor the blog got anything. All the social media awards went to Facebook pages, which is annoying to me.

Good news: Our PowerPoint presentation won a bronze, despite being in competition with cell phone apps and other more high-tech competitors. And Charlie got *another* award for the eNewsletter (that's three years in a row, for goodness sake).

And the Youth Silent Film Festival won Best New Event. Last year we got it for Memorial Day, so we're golden again (in this category) . . .

Overall, my own entries did not do that great. And considering the hours and hours of work, that bites. I mean, we won for the parade telecast, which does not require a notebook. And we got a silver for Best New Promotion and a bronze for Environmental Program. But three of the notebooks I prepared got nothing. And we got nothing at all in the Educational Program category, which is unbelievable . . .

Anyway, another year, another awards ceremony. And our weakest overall result in the past four years, despite the number of entries. Hopefully this blah feeling will pass and the competitive fire will rebuild in the old belly. But today, not so much.

Most people just don't understand how we feel about this -- and how YOU have felt about it for years and years. How it's about all the TONS and TONS of work we do all year long -- then the amazing amount of effort (and long, long intense hours) that go into these submissions.

You did AMAZING submissions -- as you always do. And you put in a TON of effort and leadership and down-and-dirty WORK for the blog (which I still think greatly deserved an award). I know we get lots of awards and a good percentage for what we submit, but YEAH -- I'm there with you. The last two years just haven't been what we might have wished.

I think it's okay to feel like 'blah' about this. And we've both admitted to one another that we do. Nothin' wrong with loving to win, after all. And I love to be able to say, "Clearly we're doing ___ (whatever) right, because we got an award for it." (grin)
