Over the last few days, the City and Regional Magazine Association handed out annual achievements at its conference up in Providence, Rhode Island. While the biggest prize went to regional magazines in Texas, Cincinnati and Honolulu, our own city glossy picked up a trophy for some of its excellent use of digital media.

Washingtonian Magazine received top honors in the multimedia category, which recognizes the use of videos, slide shows and podcasts on the respective websites for the magazines in the last year. Congrats go out to the digital staff of our local mag, and you can see the release that lists all the winners across the categories at Romanesko.

In its just-released May issue, the Washingtonian names the winners of its 2010 Green Awards, which honor those who protect the environment and teach others the importance of eco-friendly living.

Loyal We Love DC readers may recognize a few names — Philip O’Neal and Rhon Hayes, co-founders of Green DMV, whose Greater Washington Green Jobs Corps graduates weatherized the Gospel Rescue Ministries homeless shelter earlier this year; Seth Goldman, co-founder of Honest Tea, who told us why he loves DC; and Tracy Bowen of the Alice Ferguson Foundation, which organized the massive Potomac River Watershed Cleanup for which We Love DC co-sponsored a site earlier this month.

See the issue for more on the efforts these and all honorees have made. A hearty congratulations to all the winners! Keep up the great green work!
