Yes sir, it's that time of year again. In connection with National Historic Bridge Month in November, the Bridgehunter's Chronicles is once again hosting the fifth annual Othmar H. Ammann Awards. Between now and December 1st, entries are being taken for the Ammann Awards in the categories of Best Photo, Best Kept Secret in the fields of individual bridges found and tour guides- cities/regions with a high number of historic bridges, Lifetime Achievement, Mystery Bridge and Bridge of the Year. More information on the Ammann Awards and where you can send your entries can be found here: http://thebridgehunter.areavoices.com/2014/10/26/now-taking-...
Voting will take place beginning December 3rd, with the winners to be announced in January. More information on the voting scheme to come in the Chronicles very soon. If you have a bridge or a pontist that deserves accolades for all that has been done, then let's give them the recognition needed. Happy hunting and submitting.
