As many of you know, the Photojournalism program established an award in John’s name some years ago, to be awarded to the student who demonstrated commitment and excellence in the area of picture editing, an aspect of photojournalism that was so important to John in his career.
That award will now become the John Peterson Memorial Award in his memory. The college has set up a process to donate to that award. For those who may wish to contribute in John’s memory, please use the link below. Be sure to mention the donation is to be used for the John Peterson Award in Photojournalism. Please contact Awards Officer Joanne Farrell at JFarrell@loyalistc.on.ca if you have any questions or inquiries.
