Matt Eich (Barnstorm XVIII) was recently awarded the Community Awareness Award by Pictures of the Year International for his Carry Me Ohio project. The Community Awareness Award, one of POYi's premier awards, is awarded annually for "a body of work that demonstrates an understanding of and appreciation for everyday life within a community."

Eich adds this award to a long list of accolades, including College Photographer of the Year (2006), and, more recently, Student Photographer of the year (2008).

Congrats Matt!

  1. Sorry to nitpick, but I think IXX is a typo? First, there is no such number, but second, based on Matt's profile page, it should be XVIII, anyway.

    Congrats to Matt, anyway!
