ONPA comes to Kent State

The Kent State photojournalism program along with the student chapter of the NPPA had the pleasure this past weekend of hosting the annual judging for ONPA. The judging itself took two days, with the final day reserved for the guest speakers and the award ceremony. Kent State and other college students also enjoyed the opportunity to learn at workshops and have their portfolios reviewed by industry professionals during the event.

 

The Golden Flashes were well represented this year in the competition. Junior Jacob Byk was awarded the James R. Gordon Ohio Understanding Award for his photo story “The Fracturing of Green County”. Jenna Watson, also a junior, was awarded the Larry Fullerton Photojournalism Scholarship for a portfolio of her work, and received an award of excellence in the sports feature category. Freshman Andrea Noall took home an award of excellence in the pictorial category for her “Morning Fog” photo.

 

Recent alumni and alumna of Kent State also took home awards for their work. Kristen Bauer, who now works at the Elyria Chronicle Telegram, received an award of excellence in the feature picture story about a family moving out of low-income housing. Awards of excellence were also given out to Coty Giannelli in the news picture story category for his coverage of the conflict in Syria, and Shane Flanigan for product illustration.
