60th Annual POYi Awards Ceremony Returns to Columbia for a "Bring It Home" Weekend

February 2003

Dear Friends,

For the past decade, the POY awards ceremony has been held in Washington, D.C. This year we are "bringing it home" to where it all started 60 years ago. We want to invite you to do just that this April during a gala "Bring It Home" weekend saluting the 60th annual Pictures of the Year awards ceremony in concert with a McDougall Recognition Dinner and Silent Print Auction fundraising event.

Please mark April 24, 25 and 26 on your calendar and plan to join us as we celebrate 60 years of POY and to honor and recognize Mac for his contributions to photojournalism education.

Highlights of the weekend:

Thursday, April 24 ­ Kick off the weekend with a POYi Winners Reception for this year’s winners, alumni and past winners in the rotunda of Lee Hills Hall, home of the photojournalism sequence and the Columbia Missourian.

Friday, April 25 ­ Attend POYi Education Day, featuring presentations by the major winners from this year’s POYi, a panel discussion addressing current issues in photojournalism and a retrospective presentation of work from the POYi Archive. Then, join in the festivities at the Angus McDougall Recognition Dinner and Roast at the Reynolds Alumni Center. Proceeds from a Silent Print Auction will benefit the POYi Endowment Fund.

Saturday, April 26 ­ Join Dean Mills, Dean of the School of Journalism, for a discussion about the future of POYi, tour the J-School and/or take the opportunity to look at student portfolios in the morning. In the afternoon, join us for a Boone County Pig Roast.
