Best in Show!

This past Friday I was honored by the Colorado State University Department of Technical Journalism as part of the 2nd annual Alumni Media Festival.

Out of about 150 entries, about 25 "Cammy Award of Excellence", 10 "Cammy Grande" awards, and 4 Best of Festival awards were given out. Entries spanned Broadcast, Newswriting, Public Relations an Technical Writing. Each entry was judged on a 0 to 100 point scale.

At the last minute, I decided to enter the specification for the DocBook Schema for Publishers, which finally achieved OASIS Committee Specification status this past August. The entry scored 100 points and was awarded a "Best of Festival" award!
