Columbia, Mo. (April 8, 2013) — The Missouri School of Journalism won first place and $10,000 in the Intercollegiate Photojournalism Competition with the highest accumulated student points from the two photo competitions.
Grant Hindsley won first place and $2,600; Samuel Gause, ninth, in the Photo I-News & Features category.
In the Photo II category, Sarah Hoffman placed seventh; Jamie Henry-White, ninth. Their work was selected from 61 entries submitted from 38 schools in the nation.
“Our students do great work in classes and on internships in order to produce meaningful photojournalism,” said David Rees, chair of the photojournalism faculty. “It’s a happy coincidence when others recognize the value of this work, and it is recognized in competitions. These are all very hard working and deserving students and we’re proud of their efforts.”
Other schools in the top 10 are Pennsylvania State University; Western Kentucky University; University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; Ohio University; University of Nebraska-Lincoln; Kent State University; University of Oregon; University of Minnesota (tie); University of Florida (tie).
There are 106 universities with accredited undergraduate journalism schools eligible to participate in the Hearst Journalism Awards Program. The Journalism Awards Program added photojournalism to the competition in 1970, and is funded and administered by the William Randolph Hearst Foundation. The program awards up to $500,000 a year in scholarships, grants and stipends, and takes place under the auspices of the Association of Schools of Journalism and Mass Communication.
