Society of Professional Journalists' Regional Award Winners

Hmmm … let’s see … there are 14 teaching members of the journalism faculty here, one of whom teaches photojournalism. At the Society of Professional Journalists’ regional award ceremony, the Red & Black won 16 awards this year (scroll down to the second editorial) … seven of them for photography.

Hmmm …

Congrats go to:

  • Richard Hamm – first place in Sports Photography
  • Josh D. Weiss – first place in Photo Illustration, second place in Feature Photography, second place in Sports Photography
  • Kelly Wegel – second place in General News Photography
  • Danielle Hutlas – third place in Breaking News Photography
  • The Red & Black staff – third place in Feature Photography

Also heard this weekend that Josh D. Weiss won in the sports photo category at the Southern Short Course in News Photography.

Nice work, guys.
