The National Press Photographers Foundation is pleased to announce Dennis Spronck as the winner of the 2019 Yoder Award. Spronck is a photojournalist at WSYX/ABC6 in Columbus, Ohio. The $1,000 award is given to working TV photojournalists or multimedia journalists wishing to attend the NPPA News Video Workshop in Norman, Oklahoma.
The Michel du Cille Fellowships will be ongoing – not just one time – and the long-term goal is to support visual journalism education in developing countries in Africa, Foundation treasurer Frank Folwell told News Photographer magazine today.
The Fellowships are funded by donations made in du Cille’s name to the Foundation by the late photojournalist’s colleagues and friends.
