MSFCA Magazine Awards


The Minnesota Fire Chief Magazine is a very important part of our organization.  The articles submitted are mostly Minnesota based and contribute to the success of all of our fire departments.  We appreciate the support of our firefighters, reporters, and advertisers that contribute to the success of the magazine.  The Minnesota Fire Chief’s Magazine has two award categories:

Tony Richardson Photo Award

The Tony Richardson Photo Award is for the photo of the year that was used on the cover of the MN Fire Chief magazine.  It goes to the photographer who captured an event that is indicative of our progressive fire service.

(Tony Richardson was the Editor of the MN Fire Chief magazine for a period of time in the 1970’s and the 1980’s.  Tony provided valuable leadership, advice and editorial opinions to MSFCA members.  Tony was the Director of the Fire Center at the University of MN before it became a part of MNSCU.)

Frank Oberg Story Award

The Frank Oberg Story Award is for the story of the year in a Minnesota news publication and goes to a local who did a unique and/or favorable story concerning the Minnesota Fire Service.

(Frank Oberg was the Editor of the MN Fire Chief magazine for a period of time in the 1970’s and the 1980’s.  Frank provided valuable leadership, advice and editorial opinions to MSFCA members.  Frank was a Chief Officer in more than one fire department including St. Paul.)

Both awards may be given out annually, however neither must be given out if there is no outstanding article or photo – as judged by the Committee.

The winners of all awards will receive a Gold Level Award.  Nominees will be selected by the Editor of the MSFCA Fire Chiefs magazine.  The entries should be submitted by August 15 of each year to the Award Selection Committee.  The winners will be selected by the selection committee.
