Drumroll, please...

The award goes to HughE Dillon, the proprietor of PhillyChitChat.com and society photographer for Philly.com and the Philly Post, was handed the award by Mayor Michael Nutter, who said that Dillon created a new platform for sharing stories behind the community, through the lens of his camera and the words on his blog.

Congrats HughE!
