Chernobyl App Wins NPPA BOP Award

Dear Supporters,

Yesterday, the National Press Photographers Association announced it's winners for the Best of Photojournalism, Web Division.  My iPad App, The Long Shadow of Chernobyl was awarded 1st Place in the Tablet/Mobile Delivery category!  I want to reach out and say "THANK YOU" again to all of my backers, and everyone who supported my project by spreading the word.  Each backer was listed inside the App.

If you are on the East Coast, I hope you get a chance to stop by for a special projection of my Chernobyl work at the LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph next month.
