Continuing in our attempt to recognize those people who have made outstanding contributions to Modern Vespa, I have a couple of awards to bestow.
MV Artist
I don’t think anyone will be surprised that our first-ever award for MV Artist goes to Ironfoot. The logo you see at the top of this page was designed by him, just because he wanted to do it. And I am honored to have it as the most visible representation of this forum. He has also designed numerous MV patches, and continues his artistic contributions to MV with his Let’s Draw... series. I can’t think of anyone more deserving of this award than Ironfoot.

Let’s hear it for Ironfoot!

MV Photographer
Next up we have our first-ever award for MV Photographer. And the award goes to... Steve Williams, aka VESPAsfw3. Steve has been contributing his artistic talent to Modern Vespa for a long, long time -- over 15 years now. As an amateur photographer myself, I am always blown away at the atmosphere captured by Steve’s photos.

Let’s hear it for Steve!

I so agree!! Both Ironfoot and VESPAsfw3 have made huge contribution to MV and the PTW community at large. Thumbs up to both of them.

Another person who I think fits in this category is HoneyBadger (Steve H/B) who started the Show you best photographs in 2013. In addition to his amazing photos, he inspired many of us to post our best photos. It's 42 pages and 8 years of many fabulous images by MVers. Whenever someone posts a new photo, many of us are inspired to post new photos too. Great idea Steve! Thanks!!

I should add that everyone is welcome in the Let's Draw Scooters thread. Doesn't matter if you're a new artist or an old hand. Any general art project—maybe you designed a custom sticker, maybe you made an oil painting—it's all good.

Love the hassy award icon. Had me a 500cm but about 18 years ago I sold it. Regretted it ever since.

Congrats to both for their contributions and recognitions!

I completely agree, I wanted to add that the comments of VESPAsfw3 and accompanying his photos are also deserving because they make them three-dimensional.

I'm honored by the recognition. My contributions to the forum seem small compared to the massive returns I've received in terms of technical information, humor, ideas, kicks in the ass, and reminders that I'm not just some crazy person with a Vespa!

Thank you Jess and everyone else who was involved in the award. I feel lucky to be part of this community.
