Hearst Celebration

Saturday was a day of celebration for the WKU Photojournalism program at Mass Media & Technology Hall with a reception honoring their accomplishments in the Hearst Intercollegiate Photojournalism Competition.

WKU has won the Hearst Journalism Award Program’s Intercollegiate Photojournalism Competition 17 times in the past 20 years. WKU students have won nine Hearst individual photojournalism titles (’87, ’88, ’91, ’92, ’96, ’04, ’05, ’06, ’08). The Hearst competition is considered the Pulitzer Prize of collegiate journalism.

I certainly was proud to be a WKU Photo alum and had the opportunity to meet up with friends from the past and get a good look at where the program is going. Congrats fellow PJers!
