The PDF Insider goes to Hollywood for the PRSA-LA PRism Awards


Last Thursday was the 2009 PRism Award banquet. The contest, hosted by the Public Relations Society of America, Los Angeles Chapter (PRSA-LA), celebrates outstanding communication campaigns. This year, the PDF Insider was a finalist in the blogs category, so we braved Los Angeles rush hour traffic and carpooled over to Hollywood for the awards banquet.

The event’s theme was “The Next Frontier,” so there was a lot of talk about how professionals use blogs and social media like Twitter and Facebook (yes, those are links to Bluebeam’s accounts. Follow and fan us!). To tie in with that theme, the banquet’s center pieces included colorful glow sticks! As you can see from the photos below, we had a lot of (and perhaps too much) fun embracing the “future” theme.

It’s fun to take photos of moving glow sticks with your camera’s flash turned off.


Here I am posing for my official award acceptance photo, complete with my new glow stick bracelets. Maybe this is why they don’t let me out of the office often?

At the end of the night Jill (the master behind the Bluebeam Insider Newsletter) won a very cool door prize – a weekend get-away to a Hollywood resort. I hope she takes me!

In the end, the PDF Insider didn’t win the coveted PRism Award, but we did snag an Award of Excellence! Not bad for an 8-month old blog, eh? So thanks for reading and commenting on the blog, and making it a cool place to talk about Bluebeam. And remember to keep on PDF’ing!
