For more information click http://studentphotos.asu.edu

Greg Crowder Photojournalism Award
This photography contest honors a Cronkite student for excellence in photojournalism. The winner of this contest gets a $1,000 award and his or her work is displayed on the third floor of the Cronkite School overlooking the First Amendment Forum for a full year.

Cronkite graduate or undergraduate students who have completed at least six hours of journalism coursework are eligible to enter. A student who has won the award in the past is ineligible, although students who have received honorable mentions in past contests are eligible to submit their work again as long as they are still students.

Entering is simple:
·Select six to eight photos that represent your best work. The photos should have been taken between March 1 of 2012 and March 31 of this year. We’re looking for diversity of content, from portraits and features to breaking news and sports. You do not have to submit a photo from each of these areas, but do your best to provide us with a selection that shows your work across topic areas.
·Put your work on a CD or provide a url with your selections and send to kristin.gilger@asu.edu or drop them off in her office, Cronkite 304C.
·Provide a complete caption for each photo.
·Submit your work by Monday, April 8, 2013.

The usual ethical guidelines apply: Content may not be altered digitally or in any other way beyond what is traditionally accepted in the darkroom. The following is permissible: burning and dodging, changes in contrast and/or lightening or darkening a photo to improve reproduction; correcting technical defects in a photo by closing pixels to cover dust spots or erase line hits in transmissions; minor color changes to correct color shifts and improve reproduction quality.

We do not require that any of the photos have been published.

The entries will be judged by a committee appointed by the Cronkite School, to include Cronkite School faculty and professional photojournalists. In addition to the winning entry, honorable mentions will be awarded at the discretion of the judges.

We will announce a winner at the Cronkite Student Awards ceremony this spring. The photos will be mounted and framed over the summer, and a reception to honor the winner will be held next fall.

This contest is made possible through the generous support of Troy and Betsy Crowder, who established the contest to honor their son, Greg Crowder, who was a photojournalism student at the Cronkite School and who became a professional photographer after graduation.

Last year’s winning work by Cronkite student Aaron Lavinsky is featured on the third floor of the Cronkite School overlooking the First Amendment Forum next to Cronkite 314 and at http://cronkite.asu.edu/node/979.
