Opportunities for true photojournalism in television news have prompted this scholarship. It is one way to encourage those involved in television production to see the person holding the camera as more than a camera person a true photojournalist. Like the scholarships for still photographers this award is aimed at those students with television news photojournalism potential but with little opportunity and great need.
Students applying for this scholarship must be enrolled in a recognized four-year college or university having courses in TV news photojournalism must be continuing in this program leading to a bachelor's degree and must be in their junior or senior year at the time the award is given. Each applicant must complete the entry form and submit it along with a videotape containing examples of his or her work. The tape should contain no more than three complete stories (total time for all stories: six minutes) with voice narration and natural sound. Applicants must also include a letter from their professor/advisor. Applicants must include a one-page biographical sketch including a personal statement addressing their professional goals.
