BLOOMINGTON — The Herald photography staff earned 16 awards this weekend.
The awards, recognizing the best photographs from 2019, were part of the judging at the Indiana News Photographers Association contest in Bloomington.
Herald chief photographer Sarah Ann Jump was named 2019 Runner-up Indiana Photographer of the Year.
Evansville Courier & Press photographer Sam Owens was named the Photographer of the Year and Courier & Press Visuals Coach Denny Simmons placed third.
Herald staff photographer Marlena Sloss and former interns Traci Westcott and Kaiti Sullivan also received awards.
Jump, Westcott and Sloss swept the Community Awareness Portfolio category, which is awarded for “a body of work that demonstrates an unusual understanding of and appreciation for everyday life.” Jump’s portfolio featured images of girls preparing to compete in high school sports, 4-H and dance competitions. Westcott’s portfolio was a collection of moments, including Southridge’s trip to the state baseball championship, Schnellville’s mud volleyball tournament and Jasper Strassenfest. Sloss’s portfolio spotlighted local marching bands practicing and competing at the local and state levels.
The judges for the contest were Josh Bickel of The Columbus Dispatch, Jim Weber of The Daily Memphian and Taylor Glascock, a freelance photographer in Chicago.
Former Herald intern Daniel Vasta recently received an Award of Excellence in the Pictures of the Year International competition in the Sports Life category for a photo of Kade Greulich at a Forest Park High School baseball game.
