First, a big thanks to Kelly for his great Guest Blog yesterday. It created a somewhat lively debate, but for the most part it stayed pretty civil, and got a lot of people talking and thinking, which was good. Thanks Kelly.

A Tough Portrait Nicely Done
Each week NAPP’s Executive Director Larry Becker choose an image posted in the NAPP member portfolios to feature as “Image of the Week” and this week Larry choose a very cool portrait by photographer Adam Daniels as this week’s winner.

Corey Comes Up An Award-Winner (once again)
Our in-house video crew at Kelby Training participated in the 48-hour Film challenge just a few weeks ago (they have 48 hours to write, film, and edit a project from scratch), and their entry “Bedlam” wound up being nominated in two separate categories. At the award ceremony last week, they won the award for Best Graphics, and to accept the award—-the guy who designed them—-our own graphics guru, Corey Barker. Congrats to Corey, and to our entire video team of kick-$#@ editors, camera operators, and creative video sharks. Way to go guys! (Here’s the link to the challenge site).
