YOUNG PHOTOGRAPHER FINALLY WINS JIS COMPETITION

 

Aspiring photographer Yone Gordon placed first in photography in the Jamaica Information Service 2019 Heritage Competition. He had placed second and third in previous years. Gordon was one of 17 participants awarded prizes for entries in the categories of Photography, Poster and Essay, under the theme ‘Reparation.’ The competition targeted students, who were required to submit a high-resolution-quality photograph and were judged based on originality, composition, technicality and impact.

 

Gordon also got a $15,000 cash prize, a course at the Caribbean School of Media and Communication at UWI, Mona; a day pass to Jewel Runaway Bay resort; a tablet; and a book from the Centre for Reparation Research at UWI.
