Our last Pioneer

Yesterday, our last Pioneer was published. It was a good edition with some fresh news from our first year students, an article on a prestigious nomination from a graduate of the program for a World Press Award, a multimedia piece and more.

A number of the articles are from yours truly. I was glad to be able to try new things in the edition as well. For one article on theatre plays being worked on in Kingston, I put a collage of multiple pictures together. It’s not something we do often but I think it worked well in this case. I am also particularly proud of the article on sheep farming, mostly because of the nice images with the article. Normally we publish only one image per story but the three images in this case really add to the narrative.

I hope you enjoy this read.

As photojournalists, we also try to always get good visuals to accompany our stories as well. And that is not always easy for some stories, and especially now during a global pandemic.
