Ken Robinson, command information chief, records a radio spot to advertise the arrival of the 2013 Fort Huachuca phone books. It aired on Fort Huachuca and surrounding area’s radio stations. Robinson took a first-place at the Installation Management Command-level competition.

The 2012 U. S. Army Major General Keith L. Ware Public Affairs competition results from the Headquarters Installation Management Command level are in, and the Fort Huachuca Public Affairs Office is home to three of the winners, all within the Broadcast section of the competition.

According to the MG Keith L. Ware Public Affairs Communications Competition webpage on Army Knowledge Online, this annual competition, sponsored by the secretary of the Army, recognizes military and civilian employee public affairs practitioners for their journalistic excellence in furthering the objectives of the Department of the Army, or DA.

“Not a year has gone by since I’ve been here that we haven’t had someone win at the command level,” said Angela Camara, Fort Huachuca public affairs officer. “Of course the DA-level competition is much more competitive, but our team has held its own and brought some wins at that level as well.

“Most of our wins in the past few years have been out of our broadcast team. Our video and radio products really magnify our reach to various audiences through the Commander’s Access Channel (Channel 97) and Vimeo, YouTube and UStream online outlets.”

Ken Robinson, command information officer, placed first in Category B: Radio Spot Production, with his “Laugh Out Loud Comedy Tour” entry.

Thom Williams, Channel 97 broadcaster, gained first and second place in a variety of categories including: second place – Category I: Television Sport Production with his “All-Army Boxing 2012” entry; first place – Category J: Television News Report with his “11th Theater Tactical Signal Brigade Returns” entry; first place – Category K: Television Feature Report with his “Sesame Street” entry; first place – Category L: Television Sports Report with his “University of Arizona Football” entry; and first place – Category O: Television Newsbreak with his “Fort Report Band iPad” entry.

Romeo St. Pierre, audiovisual production specialist, and Williams took second place in Category M: Local Television Newscast with their combined efforts of the “Fort Report Tax and Playground” entry.

Judging is conducted with a goal of ensuring the best internal information efforts receive the recognition that is deserved for professional excellence and outstanding achievement. Broadcasting entries are graded on a multitude of criteria including audio levels and quality, camera movement, editing, music selection, opening and closing shots, special effects and more.

“I’m very proud of the team working in the Public Affairs Office,” Camara said. “They take great pride in their work and work hard each day to tell the Army and Fort Huachuca story with professionalism.”

The winners of this competition will be forwarded to the Office of the Chief of Public Affairs for DA level competition. “We’re looking forward to hearing if our team picked up any awards at the DA level this year as well,” Camara said.
