David Perry Named Top Contributor for FRONT
David Perry walked off with the top honor of Most Outstanding Contributor at the Valley Business FRONT's Writers Awards Luncheon at Hunting Hills Country Club today. Perry's work was cited by Editor Dan Smith for its clarity, humor, creativity, resourcefulness and for being on time, accompanied by superior photos--which Perry took.
Alison Weaver's cover story "Niche Itch," about the niche publications in the region, was named Story of the Year. Kathy Surace, who writes the Business Dress Column (and did a cover story on business dress, as well as other features) and Rachael Garrity were selected winners of the Editor's Award.
Jane Dalier, the FRONT's senior advertising executive, was selected Most Valuable Player on the staff of Valley Business FRONT. "If it weren't for Jane's outstanding performance," said Publisher Tom Field, "we simply wouldn't be here celebrating 16 months of publishing."
