GardenDrum has WON its first big-time award! The Horticultural Media Association of Australia has awarded GardenDrum its Website Laurel in a glam and glitzy ceremony in Melbourne last Tuesday.
An HMAA Award, as the awards are held only every 2 years, is a highly-coveted prize. It was very exciting to be a finalist but to then hear a roar of approval from the crowd of several hundred when GardenDrum was announced as the category winner was maybe even better than getting the engraved glass trophy itself.
It’s also recognition of the consistently high quality of journalism on GardenDrum from the many and varied authors who love to be published here.
My own blog here on GardenDrum also won the Social Media Laurel, so it was wonderful to have accolades as both a publisher AND as a writer/photographer.
