Multimedia journalism students win 14 awards from the SCPA

Carolina News & Reporter multimedia students won 14 awards, including seven first-place awards, in the 2021 South Carolina Press Association collegiate competition. The student winners took the Senior Semester capstone course in the spring or fall of 2021. 

The students and their work were recognized Friday, March 18, at the South Carolina Press Association collegiate conference. The conference, which returned after a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, brought together collegiate journalists from around the state for workshops and panel discussions.

"These stories and photographs represent some of the best work of our seniors working in the Monday-Friday newsroom of the Senior Semester capstone program," said Carolyn Click, the multimedia instructor in the journalism capstone program. "From an examination of Columbia’s affordable housing crisis to a profile of retired S.C. Supreme Court Chief Justice Jean Toal to a remembrance of the extinct Ivory-Billed woodpecker, the pieces resonate with passion and creativity."

This is the first year the Carolina News & Reporter website took first place honors.
