So a few weeks ago I went onto the Glenwood Springs Post Independent site to vote for some of my local favorites, friends of mine, and one of the businesses I work for. My friend Aften opened up her tattoo show almost one year ago, and I wanted to vote for her as well as her shop. I think it would be really cool to see her win right around the time she is celebrating her 1 year anniversary! I also wanted to vote for one of the companies I work for, Uncle Pizza, and my boss' other business, Big Sid's Bottles. Uncle Pizza has won Best Pizza every year since it opened in 2004, and I want to keep that going. There is also a Best Photographer section, and I usually like to see who is on it and vote for my favorite. (I know a lot of photographers!) Well, who should I happen to see at the very tip top of the ballot?! "ADAM HUGHES - SILVER AND COLD PHOTOGRAPHY"
Whaaatttttt! How did this happen?! I thought I had an idea who might have added me to the ballot, but it turns out it wasn't them....I'm sincerely flattered, and honored to be a part of this list! I never thought anyone would see me as one of the best local photographers in the valley...there is some tough competition on that list! maybe it's because I do something different, and stand out?? Who knows! anyway, I still have no idea who wrote me in. But if you dig my work, and you want to vote for me, you can do so here:
You can find me in the Arts and Entertainment section under Best Photographer.
It doesn't matter if you're a local or not. Anyone can vote, all you have to do is enter your email and create a password. It literally takes 5 seconds.
While you're at it, if you're feeling generous, please vote for these other nominations...Voting ends Apr 16th, so get on it!!!!

Thank's everyone who voted!!! It really means a lot to me! I'm not trying to win or anything, but I think it is really cool tha don't really care that much if I win. Yeah, I think that would be cool! but the fact that someone thought about me enough to enter me into the ballot, that alone is a prize in my eyes!!!
If you are the one who wrote me in, and you are reading this, I expect you to come clean!!!! It can only get worse if you don't fess up!!!! So just come forward!! hahaha love you, whoever you are!!
