I'm delighted that High and Wild, a piece about the Cairngorms in winter that appeared in the February 2014 issue of The Great Outdoors, has just been awarded the Outdoor Writers and Photographers Guild 2015 Award for Excellence for an Outdoor/Travel Feature.
The judges commented “A wonderfully written 360 degree look at a stunning region. Chris grabbed us from the off, giving a vivid picture of the landscapes, their power and beauty. We really felt his passion for the place, and the writing inspired the same. A great feature.” I love it when my enthusiasm for a favourite place can win an award!
This website also received a Special Mention in Digital Media, the judges saying "If it was for interesting content alone, then Chris, as always, is a stand-out entrant." I think there's a hint there that I need to do some work on the design.
