Scholarships will be awarded to those students whose work “tells a story.” This is a fairly broad topic and may include a variety of subject matter and approaches (breaking news, sporting events, etc.). Jim Cox, who was a television photojournalist in Phoenix, always “told a story” through his work, whether it was in video or still photography.
