UGA VJ Alums Win All the Things

Word filtered out yesterday that two alums from my program here at the University of Georgia’s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication sort of, well, won all of the things in the Georgia Press Association’s January clip contest.

Sara Caldwell, a 2011 grad, and Jon-Michael Sullivan, a 2010 grad, are both on staff at the Augusta Chronicle and about to get knee-deep in the Masters. But here’s what they did:

  • General News, first and second – Sara Caldwell
  • Photo story, first – Jon-Michael Sullivan
  • Photo story, second and third – Sara Caldwell
  • Spot news, second – Jon-Michael Sullivan
  • Sports, second – Sara Caldwell
  • Sports, third – Jon-Michael Sullivan
  • Feature, second – Jon-Michael Sullivan
  • Feature, third – Sara Caldwell

So, by my count, of the 15 photo awards for the month, the two of them won 10. In a state wide contest.

And as if that wasn’t enough, they also each had a photo in the Zuma Press Photo of the Day this past weekend.

What a great way to end the week, eh?
