The Lucie Awards - aka The Academy Awards of Photography

When I learned I won Runner-Up in the People category of
Popular Photography's annual Readers' Contest I was beyond shocked and honored. But, nothing compares to what I felt when I learned that I received an Honorable Mention for my photo "Lost in Thought" at the 2008
Lucie Awards. I came upon my name accidentally. I googled myself with the word "contest" to see if I could find the Pop Photo contest information. Instead I found this link with my name printed on the list as the winner of an Honorable Mention in the Portrait category.

The entries are recognized by the IPA jurors as honorable mentions from amongst 22,000 entries submitted from 124 countries across the globe! And, the names of all Honorable Mention recipients will be published in the 2008 Annual Awards Book.

As soon as I print my official certificate and seal for the competition I'll be scanning it here. I just couldn't wait to share the news! I need to find out about these things sooner - but how? Shall I google myself every week? I found my photos blogged all over the place and so far I was given credit for everything...Anyway...

Can someone please pinch me?
