Some are happy, others sad. Some are funny, others serious. Some are short, others long. However, every story needs characters, and your school is full of them. It's your job to tell their stories. Everyone has a story, and a contemporary and inclusive yearbook brings these stories to life on its pages. Interesting stories don't just happen. Yearbook journalists dig for details. They ask revealing questions. They take hundreds, even thousands, of images. They carefully compose descriptive nouns and action verbs. And, they display the story with a reader-friendly design. Whether reporting with a notepad, an iPad or a camera, a yearbook journalist constantly asks --"What's Your Story?" Charlie Hunnicutt, photographer Margaret Sorrows, adviser Bryant High School, Bryant, AR Opening 3 IMAGES, WORDS TELL THE STORY Images show emotion, action and reaction with great realism. Yearbook spreads that used to include five to seven photos now might feature 20 or more photos. Words provide facts, figures, opinions and descriptive details to supplement the images. They tell the anecdotes about people and their experiences that readers like. The best writing focuses on people and uses their quotes to tell much of the story. When editors, writers, photographers and designers work collaboratively to tell relevant stories focusing on people, great yearbooks are born. 4 Opening Bril Flint, photographer Cindy Todd, adviser Westlake High School, Austin, TX Bo 6 6 Book Looks Book Looks ok Looks From an artistic middle school yearbook from Florida to a sophisticated private school volume from Texas, our judges selected 30 yearbooks to showcase from cover to cover.

We shoot all the major group photos at one time, so I felt the pressure of responsibility, but also the excitement and satisfaction of a job well done. Yearbook helped prepare me for life after high school. Stepping in as yearbook editor has taught me that no one person can do anything alone. It takes a serious team of all different types of people to get something done. It's also taught me how to better organize priorities, reach out to more people, conduct myself in a professional manner, and just have fun with work. After high school, I plan to attend UCLA in pursuit of my bachelor's. Then, I'm going to be on a mission to start my own design business. Thanks to yearbook, I now can be confident when it comes to being in charge of any size group of people. 21 78 Spread Gallery 21.
