Pennsylvania Game Commission Nets Two Awards At ACI Conference
HARRISBURG, Pa., Sept. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Two Pennsylvania Game Commission employees were selected for top honors for information and educational materials prepared to promote Pennsylvania wildlife at the recent conference of the Association of Conservation Information (ACI).
Hal Korber, who is the Bureau of Information and Education’s chief photographer and videographer, won first place honors in ACI’s poster category for a poster illustrating bird migration routes across North America. Tracy Graziano, who is the Bureau of Information and Education’s assistant videographer and chief video editor, won second place honors in the video category for a Game Commission promotional video she produced.
A 24-year veteran of the Game Commission, Korber was responsible for the previous award-winning bear, deer and elk video productions, and also is widely recognized for his outstanding photography skills. His work appears often in Game News and other agency publications and displays.
A multi-media specialist with many skills, Graziano has been with the Game Commission for two years, and has been busy taking video footage of many agency projects throughout the state that have been and will be used in video productions.
“Just this past summer, Hal and Tracy were instrumental in setting up and maintaining the remote cameras used to stream video of nesting barn owls on the Game Commission website,” said Joseph J. Neville, Game Commission Bureau of Information and Education director. “These two talented people are doing a tremendous job helping tell Pennsylvania’s wildlife story, as well as the Game Commission’s role in managing our state’s native wild birds and mammals.”
The Association of Conservation Information is a professional organization of information and education specialists representing state, federal and Canadian agencies and private conservation organizations.
