Study Abroad Fair, by Greg Wilson
Technician deputy photo editor John Joyner said:
In this photo, Greg used several techniques to put together an excellent photo from the Study Abroad fair. Using a wide aperture, he was able to include the two students in the background flanking the model Eiffel Tower to add context to the photo, but they were sufficiently defocused so as to not distract. Additionally, through the use of a wide angle lens, he was able to enhance the emphasis placed on the model. Finally, the symbolism of the model itself does a very nice job of telling you what the two students were learning about – something foreign – and the pamphlet on the model further specifies it as the Study Abroad program.
Vanzant Speaks, By Chris Rupert
Technician photo editor Natalie Claunch said:
Instead of uploading a safe picture of the Vanzant behind the podium, Chris captured a moment that portrayed the passion of the speaker. This gives us a much better idea of Vanzant’s personality and is visually interesting. Chris placed Vanzant on the right third and used a relatively shallow depth of field that allows us to focus on Vanzant, but see the audience as well. Good work!
Hunt Library Chairs, By Max Hodge
Agromeck photo editor Katherine Hoke said:
The way Max framed this photo is both interesting and dynamic. The spiral line of the chair draws viewers’ eyes around the image and towards subject. Max did a nice job of filling the frame while still providing context. The photo also works well because it spotlights a student’s experience in the newly constructed Hunt Library on Centennial Campus.

2010-2011 Editor-in-Chief Susannah Brinkley accepted Agromeck’s fifth consecutive Pacemaker award at the Associated Collegiate Press Convention in Chicago, Ill. Saturday night.
The 2011 Agromeck was one of only seven college yearbooks to receive the award, which is considered by many to be collegiate journalism’s highest honor.
“I’m so humbled that I could continue the trend and produce another award-winning book,” Brinkley said. “It was an incredible experience and I am brimming with pride at the work my staff, advisers and I did together — I couldn’t have done this without their help.”
The 2012 Agromeck, edited by Kathryn Glaser, won first place in the convention’s “Yearbook Best of Show” competition. The 2012 Yearbook Pacemaker winners will be announced at the 2013 convention in New Orleans, La.
Agromeck photographers Brent Kitchen and Jordan Moore won ACP photo excellence awards for photographs published in the 2012 edition. Kitchen won first in spot news photography and Moore won fourth in feature photography. Kitchen served as sports editor of the 2011 Agromeck and Moore served as photo editor of the 2012 edition.
Agromeck designer Sarah Stadler won fifth place in infographics for “Occupy the World,” a spread she designed for the 2012 edition. Stadler served as design editor for the 2011 book.

“It is our earnest hope that other volumes of ‘The Agromeck’ will be produced, not like this one, but better. The class of ’03 has set the pace — let the classes hereafter follow suit.”
