A video profile of Cascade art instructor Curtis Fairman has won “First Place” for Best Use of Multimedia Storytelling in the 2015-2016 Pacific Northwest Association of Journalism Educators (PNAJE).  PNAJE is a group of journalism teachers in Washington, Oregon and Idaho, and for the second year it has held a competition for Community College newspapers. The video was first posted in January as part of The Bridge’s “Humans of PCC” series.

Final results for all categories are not in, but The Bridge was notified that that video won its division earlier this week.  It was created by Nathan von Brown, Gene Hall and Lucas Brehm.

In addition, photographer Gereld Gedrose received an “Honorable Mention” for his photography,

as did music reviewer David Aldred for one of his concert reviews.  We have not been notified which submitted two of Aldred’s reviews, so it could have been for his review of Madonna’s appearance at the Rose Garden, or for the review of the costume band Ghosts.
