After winning first place in the sports photo category in the California division of the National Federation of Press Women (NFPW) High School Communications Contest, Blueprint Graphics Manager and Acalanes junior Adam Byberg received an honorable mention (equivalent to fourth place) for his photo in the national division of the contest.
"I feel very honored that I was granted such a prestigious award,” Byberg said afterward.
Blueprint won a total of 19 awards in the California division of the NFPW contest, but Byberg was the only winner to also be recognized at the national level.
This is not the first time that a Blueprint staff member has been granted a national-level award by NFPW. Web Editor-in-Chief and junior Julia Zucker won first place last year in the review category for her in-depth review of the 2011 movie True Grit.
Blueprint members are appreciative of Byberg’s hard work and talent, and many feel sure that this honor is only the beginning of a very successful photography career.
"Adam is a really insightful photographer,” said Managing Editor and junior Alice Bishop. "He pays incredible attention to detail. I've seen some of the pictures he’s taken recently, and they will definitely win him even more awards next year."
Works for us. Glad we'll be seeing more stuff from Adam and the rest of the Blueprinters. Congrats on your recognition.
