UGA Student Wins Southern Short Course Shootout

Last weekend, seven photojournalism students from UGA's Grady College went to the Southern Short Couse for News Photography in Chattanooga, Tenn. Their trip was funded by the Harry Hodgson Journalism Student Support Fund.

Part of the three-day workshop was the Nikon Shootout - participants are loaned a Nikon point-and-shoot camera and given one hour to illustrate a theme.

This year, our own Kelly Wegel took first place with her photo about the weather. Ms. Wegel picked up a Nikon digital camera as well as a book of Life Magazine photos, which she has offered up as the first volume in the now-created UGA Photojournalism Library.

UPDATE: More info on the Grady College web page now.
