It’s been a year for bridge photos and tours, as well as successful preservation projects and the like. And now it’s time to give them the recognition they deserve. Entries are being taken for this year’s Bridgehunter Awards, presented by the Bridgehunter’s Chronicles. Between now and December 1st, you have an opportunity to submit your favorite bridge in the following categories:
Best Bridge Photo
Best Kept Secret Individual
Best Bridge Tour Guide
Best Example of a Preserved Historic Bridge
And Bridge of the Year.
Information on the requirements can be found per link here: https://bridgehunterschronicles.wordpress.com/the-othmar-h-ammann-awards/
Please submit your entries per mail to Jason Smith at the Chronicles at: Flensburg.firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline is December 1st with voting to commence afterwards.
With some exceptions the awards will be given on the American and International levels, Therefore, entries are welcomed from all around the world.
This is the first time the awards are being given under the new name. Although it is considered a generic name, it includes the categories named after several bridge greats, from Ammann himself, to Eric DeLony, honoring them for their work in bridge construction and preservation. The Author’s Choice Awards, where the author chooses his best and worst for bridge preservation and destruction remains as is, but if you have some candidates worth mentioning, please check the guidelines in the link and submit your entries, using the above-mentioned e-mail address. While the Pics of the Week will not be included in this year’s awards, there is a separate page in the Chronicles where you can click on and have a look at the photos taken by the author, using them as a source of inspiration to refine and improve your photo-taking skills.
And with that, all I can say is Happy Bridgehunting and looking forward to the entries! 🙂
