Applications are now being accepted from returning second year students in the Photojournalism Program at Loyalist College , for the 2012 Shaun Best Scholarship.
This is a full tuition scholarship in memory of Shaun Best, the talented Reuters photographer who died suddenly at the age of 43 in 2011. To learn more about Shaun and his work, visit the Reuters photo blog at
Spearheaded by Barbara Davidson, a Pulitzer prize-winning photojournalist and friend of our program, Shaun’s colleagues and co-workers have decided to remember Shaun by helping a second year Loyalist College Photojournalism realize his or her dream too.
The application will consist of a portfolio of no more than 20 jpeg images. Picture stories or multi media count as one of the 20. demonstrating your skills so far, and a letter to the judges, giving them an understanding of who you are, why you want to be a photojournalist, and why you are deserving. Financial need may be considered in this letter.
Deadline for this package containing a CD of your images and your letter is Thursday October 4, 2012. Submit your envelope to Frank at his office. 1n3b no later than 2 p.m. on that date. Final selection will be made by Barbara Davidson and committee.
Best of Luck to all -FOC
