    Chris Morrow Wins with Wyland Earth Day!

     

    Chris Morrow was a definite HIT with her 30 minute documentary "Wyland Earth Day."  She put together her tagged CNN iReports, a CNN.com/live interview, and additional footage to tell the complete 24 hour marathon of Wyland at his biggest Earth yet.

     

    Atop of the Long Beach Arena in California, Wyland with lots of volunteers did the unimaginable and painted the world's largest mural of the planet.  Covered from head to toe in blue paint, Wyland dedicated his unpaid art work to the world.

     

    On Sunday, September 27th, Morrow was awarded with best picture from San Diego.  Before knowing that she would win this great honor she invited several Superstar iReporters to visit the film festival and afterwards have the first meeting of iReporters in the area.  Everyone was so excited for her and an honor that was well deserved for her tireless contributions to CNN iReport.

     

    Several celebraties and film makers were also present including Katie Lowes from Transformers 2 and Easy Money, (Tab 2)  Craig Slike from the Mole (Tab 3), and Darlene Wyland, Wyland's mother (Tab 4).  A great photo of Wyland and Chris Morrow can be seen on Tab 5.
