Awards
A word about awards: For over 20 years I never personally entered any of my work in any awards competition but various employers and clients did. I got a bit cynical about the commercial nature of the awards "industry" with all the money they charge to enter and then if you win you have to pay to attend the ceremony and for your plaque or medallion or whatever. (I wonder if movie stars have to pay for their Oscars?) They do look good on one's resume and can be impressive on the wall, so I decided I should get around to entering some things on my own. All this to explain why there's a big gap between '89 and '97.  And now that I've somewhat denigrated the whole process, I'll shamelessly list all of my wonderful and laudable achievements:
