Judges JOHN CUTSINGER transitioned this year into the role of Jostens Ambassador after 16 years in the classroom as a yearbook, newspaper and magazine adviser and 27 years as a Jostens education and creative manager. A JEA Certified Journalism Educator, John takes great pride in his CSPAA Gold Key, his NSPA Pioneer, his JEA Medal of Merit and Friend of Scholastic Journalism, his SIPA Distinguished Adviser Award, and Dow Jones Newspaper Fund Journalism Teacher of the Year.

SAM OLDENBURG advises the Talisman at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Kentucky. A student-produced culture and lifestyle magazine, the Talisman was originally a yearbook and has received 20 Pacemaker Awards from the Associated Collegiate Press, including one while Sam was the photo editor. A graduate of the school’s nationally-recognized photojournalism program, he worked in media in New York and Kentucky before returning to his alma mater.

DEREK GOWER has been a freelance photographer in the Dallas-Fort Worth area for six years and has been part of photojournalism education for even longer. He has mentored under a professional photojournalist, helped military-dependent youth find their voice through photojournalism, co-founded a wedding photography business, and photographed for a variety of clients in the fields of healthcare, education, business and advertising.

MARCI PIEPER, Ed.D, teaches yearbook and photojournalism at Clayton High School in St. Louis, Missouri and has advised yearbooks for over 30 years (and sometimes newspapers and literary magazines).
