Opening


EVERYONE HAS A STORY Great yearbooks tell stories. 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?”

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.

ASHLEY SANDERS editor Southeast Career Technical Academy Henderson, NV

My favorite yearbook memory was during our clubs and majors photoshoot when I had to get everyone lined-up and make things a little easier for the photographer. 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.

My favorite aspect of working on the yearbook has always been seeing the finished product and witnessing the reactions of the student body as well as our own staff when they hold the completed yearbook in their hands.

NYREE JONES people editor/ production manager Coronado High School Colorado Springs, CO

My favorite yearbook memory was a time during my junior year when our editorial staff would stay after school on late nights, order pizza, talk, listen to music, and just work all night on pages. When the pizza came, our adviser, Mama B., would call us to the table and we would eat like a family. Afterwards, we’d continue to work. That was something I will always love and always remember. After high school, I plan on going to college and majoring in marketing.

Thanks to yearbook, I now can excel as an adult in any work environment.

TRA’VON GILBERT editor-in-chief Parkrose High School Portland, OR

My favorite aspect of working on the yearbook is feeling like I play a big role at school. I get to do something fun with a team, meet new people, and gain the experience of making something the entire school can enjoy! My favorite yearbook memory was last year when the book was finished and the entire yearbook staff had a party.

Deadlines are a pain, but the pay-off is more than worth it.

Yearbook helped me learn how to

take charge and be a leader. It has given me work skills and it has taught me how to organize a team.

After high school, I plan on either becoming a police officer or a book author. Thanks to yearbook, I now can have more pride in myself as a leader.

ROY TANNEHILL editor Udall High School Udall, KS

My favorite aspect of working on the yearbook is the design aspect, working on a page until it’s absolutely perfect. Starting out on the staff in my first year and being thrown into the editor position, I was completely clueless! I was working with a brand new staff, but somehow we all pulled through. After a while I got the hang of it and now I can do all the design aspects in my sleep! Designing pages is what I do best, and that is why I love yearbook so much. Yearbook helped me open my eyes to what the real world is going to be like. Putting in a lot of time and effort in and out of the class has shown me what it’s going to be like having a part-time job, and balancing school all at once. After high school, I plan to attend Cowley County Community College and major in graphic design.

Thanks to yearbook, I now can think quickly on my feet and work great with a team.

MEGAN REBHOLTZ co-editor Bishop Kelly High School Boise, ID

My favorite aspect of working on the yearbook is being able to provide students with a keepsake of their high school years that they can cherish for the rest of their lives. Despite the differences amongst students, being able to create the story that depicts our common high school story is especially rewarding. My favorite yearbook memory involves

distributing the yearbooks on the last day of school and witnessing the excitement on the faces of the students. Having been recognized by the American Scholastic Press Association in the past, it’s very satisfying for our hard work to be appreciated. However, it is the reassuring positive feedback we receive from the students and faculty that is most valuable.

After high school, I plan on attending a university to obtain a business degree. Ideally, I’d like to wed this with my passion for service in order to create or participate in significant global service projects.

Thanks to yearbook, I can now lead and manage diverse groups of people.

152. The American American Fork High School, American Fork, UT Abby Olsen, 2011 adviser Aaron Lyons, Jostens representative Topic: Opening

Generous white space balances the strong graphic presentation.

(2011 yearbook)

CRISTINA CIRELLI lead editor (2011 yearbook) Sonoma Valley High School Sonoma, CA

My favorite aspect of working on the yearbook is the creativity. The joy behind choosing the colors, fonts and designing the layouts allowed me to appreciate the process. While many people are familiar with yearbook as a project, to me it’s more of a journey. Yearbook gave myself and each individual staff member the opportunity to express our own unique creative ideas and so that the book truly represented our staff and our school. My favorite yearbook memory took place on April 7, 2011 at 8:40 p.m., when my yearbook teacher, Mr. [Andy] Mitchell, gave me the privilege of sending out the last page. I was ecstatic; however after sending the page, I began to cry realizing I would never be a part of a yearbook staff again. That day is close to my heart. Yearbook has had a big impact on my life, especially since I was named “Most Likely to Discuss Yearbook at a Party” and was known as the “2011 Yearbook Nerd.” After high school, I’m currently attending Santa Rosa Junior College and I plan on receiving a bachelor’s degree in Communications and later receiving a master’s degree in Business Administration.

Thanks to yearbook, now I can never read a magazine, look at an advertisement, or go on the Internet without finding elements that next year’s staff could use. Trust me, I have a long list.

My favorite aspect of working on the yearbook

JENNIFER GARDNER editor-in-chief Orono High School Long Lake, MN

is attending workshops and being inspired by the people I meet there. It’s a fantastic opportunity to work closely with industry professionals who are as excited about yearbook and design as I am. Going to workshops has challenged my ideas about design and has opened my eyes to careers I’d never even considered before.

Yearbook helped me by giving me exposure to things most high school students never experience. I’m essentially running a $60,000 business while learning about design and effective marketing and advertising strategies. Yearbook has also helped me develop my leadership skills and my ability to manage stress. It’s cool, actually, to look at a class that some people say is “easy” and knows that all of the hard work I’ve put into it has helped me develop skills I’ll use for the rest of my life. After high school, I’ll be attending Drake University and majoring in Magazine Journalism with a minor in Marketing. I plan to work on one of Drake’s award-winning magazines.

Thanks to yearbook, I can now “cob” like a pro. Thanks to a prior year’s Hall of Fame page, I’m the resident cobbing expert on our staff.

AMBER ROLLAND sports editor Buffalo Island Central High School Monette, AR

My favorite aspect of working on the yearbook is seeing everyone’s reactions the day the yearbooks are passed out. Teachers are always telling students to put the yearbooks away and pay attention to the lesson. Seeing everyone else appreciate the hard work the staff has put in all year long makes it all worth it. My favorite yearbook memory is

winning Writer of the Year at the 2011 Arkansas Scholastic Press Association convention. Since it was my first year on the staff, I really didn’t expect to win. Receiving the first place award in both the news story and feature story categories from the Arkansas Press Women competition the very next day made my first ASPA experience quite memorable.

After high school, I will be pursuing an

engineering degree at a university in Arkansas. After that I hope to obtain my master’s degree and become an aerospace engineer.

Thanks to yearbook, I now can truly appreciate the magazines I read, not just for their articles and copy, but for the work that was put in to create the layouts and photographs.

The photos are placed in a Brady Bunch style grid. • For contrast, black-and-white and processcolor portraits are combined effectively. Different bright colors are used for the paragraphs of text profiling each student.

216. Laurel

215

Millbrook High School, Raleigh, NC Mary Beth Putnam, 2011 adviser Kim Trezona, Jostens representative Topic: Contents

• Tightly cropped photos of students holding personal “bucket lists” make the contents listing highly personal and interesting. • The design receives high-profile treatment by displaying it on the front endsheet.

217. Panther Tale

Duncanville High School, Duncanville, TX Mary Pulliam, 2011 adviser Tread Sheffield and associates, Jostens representatives Topic: Project Graduation

• A strong dominant photo provides visual impact with its leading lines and is contrasted in size by the set of three subordinate photos along the left. • Tilting the headline package and story at a slight angle adds visual variety within a clean and orderly layout.

218. The Bolt Central High School, Keller, TX Natalie Brown, 2011 adviser Tread Sheffield and associates, Jostens representatives Topic: Cheerleading

219

• Tight spacing on these photo collections helps showcase a variety of action shots from stunts to sidelines. • The “One Out of 20” module coverage provides a thematic link, as does the “One Thing I Like” quote presentation in another variation of the whole-book headline font.

219. Lair Wheeling High School, Wheeling, IL Sandra Gruen, 2011 adviser Regina Murray, Jostens representative Topic: Weekends

• A variety of mini-stories cover the topic of weekends. Visual unity is achieved by repeating dominant red in the photos with the accent red in the headline presentation and folio tabs. • The tight spacing in the photo collections contrasts the cut-out-background of the photo next to the headline and in the photo strip at the bottom.

220. T he Pride

220

Starr’s Mill High School, Fayetteville, GA Patt Coleman, 2011 adviser Lauren Logsdon, Jostens representative Topic: Unique activities

• The dominant photo becomes a powerful focal point because the rule line of the headline treatment leads the eye into the photo while the vertical rail of expanded spacing on the right isolates it from the other modules. • The spread contrasts the tight spacing in the photo collection with the standard spacing that separates the photos and their captions along the bottom.

221. The Traveler Robert E. Lee High School, San Antonio, TX Brenda Slatton, 2011 adviser Mica Carpenter, Jostens representative Topic: New Mexico trip

221

• The dramatic power of the dominant photo is enhanced by the fact that it is the only black-and-white photo on the spread; it also makes a visual connection to the story about the exciting aspects of a school trip to New Mexico. • The photo-contact prints add youthful energy, a retro-graphic element in a digital age.

222. The Eagle Richardson High School, Richardson, TX Wade Kennedy, 2011 adviser Tread Sheffield and associates, Jostens representatives Topic: Marching band

• Direction plays a big part in the spread’s visual appeal, with both photos on the left page leading into the layout. • In place of a traditional feature story, quotes with mini-headlines break the text into easy-to-read segments.

223. Trojan Stanton County High School, Johnson, KS Ann Davis, 2011 adviser Jake Wright, Jostens representative Topic: Softball

224

• An eye-catching primary headline makes a strong connection to the dominant photo’s action, pulling in readers. • The scoreboard goes beyond the basics, incorporating a cluster of three action mugs for visual appeal and individual player recognition.

224. Mountaineer Rogers High School, Rogers, AR Diana Kolman, 2011 adviser Randy Joe Hamilton, Jostens representative Topic: Twitter

• This design features a large primary headline in the purple accent color and a longer, secondary headline with specific a lead-in that encourages reading of the main story. • Effective use of the purple accent color and the novelty font results from repeating each with sparing control to avoid over-whelming the content.

225. Culmen

225

Scotch Plains Fanwood High School, Scotch Plains, NJ Julie Whitty, Amy Rutkowski, 2011 advisers Bonnie Blackman, Jostens representative Topic: Now and then

• Charming recreations of childhood friendship photos provide unique “Now and Then” coverage. Note that the “beach buddies” in the bottom right module are even using towels that are similar in color to those in their childhood photo. • Interesting direct quotes turn these expanded captions into mini-stories.

226. Talismann J.L. Mann High School, Greenville, SC Phillip Caston, 2011 adviser Claude Saleeby, Jostens representative Topic: Food and snacks

• A dynamic approach to a question-answer module uses cut-out-background photos anchored to a rule line in a light blue accent color used elsewhere on the spread. • The use of unjustified alignment for the captions and story create an open and informal look. A larger point size makes the reversed text more readable.

28 My favorite aspect of working on the yearbook is designing. The idea of a single element, adding to another element, creating a visually appealing spread and watching it come together step-by-step just fascinates me. I enjoy changing around elements on a page and tweaking them here and there to create something that will stand out.

JENNIFER Yearbook helped me gain responsibility, be RAMOS more organized and become more effective in my

editor-in-chief Legacy High School Las Vegas, NV

various roles in life. It has also prepared me to deal with all of the stress that comes my way.

After high school, I will be moving to Long Beach, CA, and attending a tech school to become an ultrasound technician. Once I finish and begin that field, earning a steady salary, I want to earn a graphic design degree and become a freelance designer, possibly opening up my own ad agency.

Thanks to yearbook, I now...look at a magazine, for more than just the pictures.

78 My favorite aspect of working on the yearbook is working with amazing people to create and document special memories. There’s nothing better than the feeling I get when I think about how my classmates will be looking at their yearbooks, 40 years from now and reminiscing about their high school memories —smiling and knowing that I helped create that.

ANA CASTANEDA Yearbook prepared me for life after high

editor-in-chief Katella High School Anaheim, CA

school by providing me with some “real-world” skills. I have acquired better communication skills and I’ve become a better leader. I see yearbook as a job—and one that I love. I have to make sure I’m at school every day and that our sales are on schedule—or even better than last year.

After high school, I plan to go to college,

stay active in yearbook and pursue my dream of becoming a yearbook sales representative.

Thanks to yearbook, I now can say I’m ready for the “real world.”

At one angle the lenticular shows a close-up of the hawk and then it changes to a spirited crowd shot of students. The Custom Embossed cover features foil stamping, silk-screening with the lenticular applied as a tip-on.

A HELPING HAND | Sarah Nichols helps four-year journalism student Sydney Rodriguera set the white balance on her camera for classroom lighting. In addition to the yearbook, Nichols advises the school’s news magazine, news website and photojournalism programs.

‘Every reader, every page’ Sarah Nichols, JEA National Yearbook Adviser of the Year, uses social media and the web to bridge the gap between instant and delayed gratification while demonstrating the value of the printed book. January 19, 2011, began like many other Wednesday mornings for Sarah Nichols, the Details yearbook adviser at Whitney High School, Rocklin, CA. She woke up, went to work and spent the day teaching students in her publications, journalism, photojournalism and mass media classes. After school she attended a staff meeting in the library. “It was the first time I had left the classroom,” she said, “and I was in a daze at the start of the meeting, enjoying a few minutes of peace after a chaotic day.” That’s when she saw H.L. Hall, Journalism Education Association Yearbook Adviser of the Year committee chair, and Kelly Furnas, JEA executive director, walking out of a back room, followed by a long trail of people. “I thought to myself, Those people are here for me!”

192

JEA National Yearbook Adviser of the Year

Her stomach rumbled with a curious mix of nervous energy and anticipatory butterflies. Her instincts proved to be right. Hall and Furnas had come to bestow the JEA 2010 National Yearbook Adviser of the Year award upon her. “I was surprised and touched and obviously very honored, but I was also caught off guard and that’s something that doesn’t happen often or easily.” The honor represented the crowning achievement of a career in yearbooks that began when Nichols was a junior in high school at Centerville High School, Centerville, OH. As part of Centerville’s Elkonian staff, she served as editor of the people section during her junior year and as co-editor during her senior year. Her tenure there would prove to be formative.

“Being part of yearbook in high school was the single most influential experience in my life,” Nichols said. “The close personal bond I formed with my high school adviser inspired me to pursue advising, but it was more than that. I loved every aspect of the book’s production and the collaborative experience involved. I knew at age 16 it was something I wanted to pursue.” She launched her yearbook advising career at Danville Community High School, Danville, IN, where she taught journalism for five years. In the summer of 2005, Nichols started the new yearbook program at Whitney High School. She helped the first two yearbook editors name the yearbook (Details) and wrote the program’s first mission statement. “We are inspired and bound by our name, Details; we strive to cover it all. Our motto is ‘Every reader, every page.’ ” Nichols’ enthusiasm for yearbook is renewed each year by the fervor her students bring to the effort. “Seeing students start with just a few tools and helping them find their way is such a fun journey,” she said. “Every day has those ‘Aha!’ moments mixed in with all of the laughter, food, chaos, revisions and teamwork.”


DEADLINES & HEADLINES | On deadline in room C-2, National Yearbook Adviser of the Year Sarah Nichols and Details editors Lauren Roudebush and Amanda Peterson. Nichols gave the editors the T-shirts as a “nerdy yearbook gift” during the holidays and they wore the shirts on deadline days to motivate the staff.

As a veteran adviser, Nichols has witnessed the evolution of yearbooks. In the early years of her advising career, yearbooks were still primarily created by scanning photos printed from film or by tagging photo prints and mailing them to the plant. “From shooting digital images on high-end cameras to creating page PDFs and uploading online, it’s a totally different process,” she said. “Students record interviews with their cell phones and use text messages to verify quotes.” New media channels like the web and social media continue to impact the ways yearbook staffs gather stories and images to produce the story of the year. “Teens are used to getting things quickly,” she noted. “Everyone’s a photographer now and everyone’s sharing or posting photos constantly. Sarah Nichols That alone has significantly affected how we operate. “We’ve had to shift our mindset to stay in the conversation, bridge the gap between instant and delayed gratification, show the value of the printed book.” “Making yearbooks relevant in an increasingly digital age was our focus,” she said. “So, I pushed the staff to achieve this.” The staff expanded its Facebook presence and used social media to generate better coverage opportunities, solicit

photos and obtain information. They use interactive elements, such as “likes this” stickers, customized for each student. They offer supplemental yearbook coverage in the form of a website, detailsyearbook.com. “That student-created, student-managed site includes Flickr galleries, Soundslides audio presentations linked to pages in the book, profiles, spring scores not included in the printed book, comments from readers and more.” The look and feel of the website matches the school’s 2010 yearbook. It offers readers an interactive spring supplement, as well as expanded multimedia coverage of important school events, all year long. “Other staffs are doing similar things to reach new readers/buyers and make the yearbook experience as interactive as possible,” she said. “With QR codes, personal pages and all of the other cool things happening, it’s fun to watch yearbooks evolve.” Ultimately, Nichols hopes advisers have fun. “Take positive risks,” she said. “Let the kids do the work. Teach and train, and sit next to students every step of the way, but let them run the show. Expose your staff to excellent examples and reward them often for work well done.”

2011 yearbook adviser honor roll of excellence In all, seven advisers were honored by the Journalism Education Association in the National Yearbook Adviser of the Year competition, co-sponsored by Jostens. In addition to the Adviser of the Year honor, Distinguished and Special Recognition advisers were also recognized.

The photographer’s use of a slower shutter speed allowed this photo to show blur as these girls slap hands. The camera’s tilted angle adds to the frenzied, happy emotion shown on the girls facing the camera. The warm red tonality of their costumes adds a pop of color to the scene. The photographer went behind the scenes to get this award winner.

Academics/Community Service

1st Place: “Water Lab” Casey Simons, photographer; Cindy Todd, adviser Westlake High School, Austin, TX An experiment in a science class provides a strong reaction from both the chemicals and the girls conducting the exercise. The photographer is at a perfect angle to capture both the liquid flying through the air and the girls’ faces, visible through their safety goggles. The photographer used a fast shutter speed to capture the liquid explosion.

2nd Place: “Around the Pole” Sam Alexander, photographer; Donna Leopard, adviser Fox Creek High School, North Augusta, SC Students gathered in prayer around a flag pole show a solemn presence from this photographer’s position outside the circle. Lots of repetition aids the composition, including the students clasped hands and bowed heads. Soft morning light diffused by the trees adds to the quiet mood.

Photo Contest

201


3rd Place: “Wonder” Maggie Zhang, photographer; Renee Levy, adviser Fayetteville-Manlius High School, Manlius, NY A circle of students involved in a “hands-in” science experiment creates strong composition from this photographer’s high angle, possibly from atop a table. The outstretched arms experiencing the result of the experiment combine with the concentrated faces to provide a strong interaction between the experiment and the participants.

Photo Contest


4th Place: “Illumination” Dylan Gray, photographer; Margaret Sorrows, adviser Bryant High School, Bryant, AR The dark background surrounding the students, combined with the industrial protective masks and gloves, creates a strong setting for this classroom scene that looks a little like something from a horror movie. The photographer’s elevated shooting position enables the down-pointed heads to bring the viewer to the bright white focal point at the bottom of the picture.

Photo Contest

203


5th Place: “Book Learning” Brandon Townley, photographer; Mike Wise, adviser Oakstone Academy, Westerville, OH Buried behind a pile of books, this girl’s portrait is enhanced by the framing of her face by the white pages of the book she gazes into. The photographer placed the girl’s face high in a strong top rule of thirds placement, letting the stack of books support her attention and the studious mood of the image. A dark background complements the setting.

204

Photo Contest


Graduation

1st Place: “Salutatorian” Sidney Hollingsworth, photographer; Deanne Brown, adviser Westlake High School, Austin, TX The diagonal placement of the bow becomes a leading line directly to the concentrated gaze on the violinist’s face. The warm, red color of her robe’s sash also brings the viewer to her face. The simple, warm-toned wall provides a perfect, unobtrusive background for the evenly illuminated natural light image.

Photo Contest

205


2nd Place: “Saying Goodbye” Jared Lathan, photographer; Toni Cooper, adviser Marist High School, Eugene, OR Hugging is one of the classic moments at graduation ceremonies. Pride and emotion show in the face and arms of the woman embracing a robed graduate. While it’s often hard to simplify the background in such busy settings, the photographer did a good job of framing this moment by moving in close to the subjects and keeping a simple background.

206

Photo Contest


3rd Place: “Future Awaits� Grace Finley, photographer; Margaret Sorrows, adviser Bryant High School, Bryant, AR A good shooting position at the ceremony allowed the photographer to interact with newly graduated students still reacting to having received their diplomas after walking across the stage. The swinging, warm-toned yellow tassel on the graduation cap leads to the wide-open mouth of the graduate proudly displaying the diploma.

Photo Contest

207


4th Place: “Anticipation� Katherine Usavage, photographer; Sarah Rogers, adviser Mission College Preparatory Catholic High School, San Luis Obispo, CA The repetition of a long line of graduates waiting for the processional into the ceremony uses strong depth of field to maintain focus through the photo from the foreground to the vanishing point in the background. The sunlight from the left side of the frame provides texture and interest bouncing off caps, gowns, hair and faces.

208

Photo Contest


5th Place: “I Made It, I Made It!� Erica Oswalt, photographer; Julie Goldstein, adviser Green Valley High School, Henderson, NV In a group of graduates, the photographer found this beaming graduate looking in her direction becoming the focal point. Placing her face, and the face of another graduate, at the right rule of thirds position allowed the photographer to use the surrounding graduates to fill the scene without interfering with the moment. Specular highlights from light coming into the lens also frame the subject.

Photo Contest

209


Illustration

1st Place: “Scorched—With Missing Pieces” Leah Rachel Von Essen, photographer; George Mazzeo, adviser Holmdel High School, Holmdel, NJ A variety of photo software techniques adds areas of interest in this portrait. The photographer isolated each technique by making individual selections of the image and then applying the techniques. The strong cropping of the original image, combined with the intense gaze of her eyes, make the starting image a strong one for manipulation.

210

Photo Contest


2nd Place: “Through the Roof” Nicole Rodriguez, photographer; Jeff Grimm, adviser Trinity High School, Euless, TX Shooting beneath a frosted glass stairwell creates an interesting image that holds the viewer’s gaze as the eyes move around the frame. The contrast of the black footprints on the floor’s surface creates interesting patterns in the picture, as does the geometric pattern of the stairway’s architecture.

Photo Contest

211


3rd Place: “The School” Heather Ellis, photographer; Clint Smith, adviser Texas High School, Texarkana, TX Using the silhouettes of people in contrast to an aquarium’s display of a school of fish, this photograph effectively showcases the forms of the people against the light background. The position of the three cell phones used by the visitors adds interest and creates a focal point in the center lower third of the frame’s horizon.

212

Photo Contest


4th Place: “Adolescent Bliss� Mikka Mitchell, photographer; Meagan Masters, adviser South Barber High School, Kiowa, KS A joyous reaction to snow seems enhanced by some photographic software techniques enabling the photographer to clone subjects and snowfall in this illustration. The relatively snow-free area of the image on the right side of the frame suggests the starting point for the illustration.

Photo Contest

213


5th Place: “Breaking the Mold� Savannah Nangle, photographer; Karla Primosch, adviser Fountain Hills High School, Fountain Hills, AZ This photo starts to take on the effect of art with its use of photo software tools and techniques. Composed with a strong mystical theme, the photo blurs the line between photo and art illustration, making it difficult to define which parts of the image are original and which are created on the computer and added to it.

214

Photo Contest


Junior High/Middle School

1st Place: “Soul Grate” Amethyst Ortega, photographer; Marsha Lott, adviser Ebenezer Middle School, Rincon, GA Starting with a well-composed, tightly cropped image, this illustration’s warm tonality is enhanced by strong brown brush strokes to selected image areas. The alteration of the original image is enhanced by its tone and contrast enhancements, allowing the color and shading to work to strong effect.

Photo Contest

215


2nd Place: “Friends” Santana Moretz, photographer; Wendy Layne, adviser West Iredell Middle School, Statesville, NC Arm-in-arm, this group of girls walking down a school hall shows them enjoying each other’s company during the school day. The photographer’s position allows the group room to move into the picture. The natural light is used to great effect, creating an image with light bouncing off the metal lockers, the polished floor and the glass windows.

216

Photo Contest


3rd Place: “Sundown in Church� Jeremy Phillips, photographer; Bruce Fowler, adviser Ola Middle School, McDonough, GA Even without a person in the frame, this scenic pictorial shows interest in the way the background is illuminated by a large reflection on a wall. The light falling across the folding chairs suggests intense sunlight casting strong shadows and adding to a photo that is both solemn and serene.

Photo Contest

217


4th Place: “Fall Festival Fun� Teagan Hayes, photographer; Mary Patrick, adviser Maize South Middle School, Wichita, KS This winning photograph was shot by a photographer aiming a camera at the subject from the next chair over on an amusement park ride. Motion is nicely suggested through the positions and arc of the chairs. The color on the concrete walls picks up the colors of the chairs and the T-shirt of the girl reacting to the motion.

218

Photo Contest


5th Place: “Shatter” Kaylee Clark, photographer; Leah Tucker, adviser South Junior High School, Boise, ID Using the cobweb of broken glass to frame the subject, the photographer perfectly frames the child’s eye in this haunting portrait. The subject’s placement at the right rule of thirds intersection allows the setting of the broken glass to be interpreted in an abstract way. The blue color of the boy’s eyes and T-shirt connects strongly to the color of the glass hole surrounding his right eye.

Photo Contest

219


Portrait

1st Place: “Piano Man� Tessa Ostvig, photographer; Sarah Cole, adviser Orono High School, Long Lake, MN Shooting from a low angle at the end of the piano, this photographer effectively used the piano keys and shallow depth of field to lead to the intense subject of this environmental portrait. The reflection of the subject in the piano adds strong interest. The top of the hat and the far end of the piano also create interesting geometry at the far end. The dark shirt, hat and piano keys move the eyes through this frame.

220

Photo Contest


2nd Place: “Asian Princess� Olivia Strohm, photographer; Marian Stofsick, adviser Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy, Cuyahoga Falls, OH A beautiful portrait with beautiful light makes for a winner in this tightly composed and cropped image. Lighting from the front of the subject allows the facial texture and eyelashes to be featured in this side-angle shot. The red lipstick adds great contrast to a shadowed area of the image. Shooting the subject with closed eyes adds interest to the portrait. Photo Contest

221


3rd Place: “Age” Jessica McCann, photographer; Martha Akers, adviser Loudoun Valley High School, Purcellville, VA Finding interesting environments for portraits is a significant task. A peeling paint wall is a great textured background for this effective portrait shot with a wide-angle lens. The outstretched hand serves as a strong leading line to the subject’s face showing an intense gaze. The fading pink wall, fingernails, sweater and lips give this portrait a unified color connection.

222

Photo Contest


4th Place: “Little Mind…Big Thoughts” Zach Pezzillo, photographer; Lenda McGehee, adviser Seabury Hall, Makawao, HI This is a great portrait of a child with a definite sense of attitude and personality. The child’s upturned face and wide eyes are framed by her arms supporting her face. The photographer moved in tight, effectively eliminating distraction. The black-and-white tones also prevent distraction. The natural light adds interest through texture, highlights and shadows.

Photo Contest

223


5th Place: “Christian Larrave—Muralist” Ben Chesnut, photographer; Ray Westbrook, adviser St. Mark’s School of Texas, Dallas, TX Here is another use of an interesting environment for a winning portrait. The art on the wall, with the swirling red lines and grasping hand, seems to encompass the subject in its grasp. The subject’s gray-and-black clothing contrasts effectively to the wall art. The long shadow from the side light further enhances the portrait.

224

Photo Contest


Sports: Athletes in Action

1st Place: “Freestyle” Alyssa Muraoka, photographer; Michelle Knoetgen, adviser ‘lolani School, Honolulu, HI Giving the viewer a different point of view from under the water, this sports action is intriguing with its light casting shadows in the water and across the subject’s body. The inclusion of the line of the lane marker gives the image color contrast and provides a leading line matching the swimmer’s arm and position in the water. The blue reflection in his swim goggles illuminates his eye.

Photo Contest

225


2nd Place: “Deep Dive” Matt Trauschke, photographer; Margaret Sorrows, adviser Bryant High School, Bryant, AR Frozen by a fast shutter speed just as he dives off the platform, this swimmer’s body arcs up, framing the action of his fellow competitor. The lines of orange and black, both horizontally and vertically, lead the eye through the frame’s extreme depth of field. The natural overhead light provides even illumination front to back.

226

Photo Contest


3rd Place: “Dozal Tackle” Paul Mathieson, photographer; Cindy Todd, adviser Westlake High School, Austin, TX A telephoto lens brings a potential touchdown run into the frame of the camera. Just out of reach from the opponent’s dive with outstretched arm and body, the runner keeps his sights on the end zone. A large f/stop combined with the telephoto’s range provided shallow depth of field, which isolated these players from everything in the background.

Photo Contest

227


4th Place: “Chris Bull—Sports Action 1” Chris Bull, photographer; Cindy Todd, adviser Westlake High School, Austin, TX Peak game action is key in this winning volleyball shot. The high jump and upstretched arm of the offensive player’s action contrast with the upstretched arms of the defending opponent hoping to block her shot. Much of volleyball is upper-body action, as shown effectively in this winning image.

228

Photo Contest


5th Place: “Full Speed” David Cha, photographer; Amy Huntoon-Perkins, adviser Gilman School, Baltimore, MD Panning and a slow shutter speed combine to make this image a winner. Slightly moving the camera with the forward motion of the runner allowed the photographer to eliminate most of the busy background. The slow shutter speed suggests the motion of the runner’s arms and legs. The placement of the runner on the left quadrant of the rule of thirds leaves room for him to run into the frame.

Photo Contest

229


Sports: Sidelines and School Spirit

1st Place: “Pumped Up” Nathan Kallison, photographer; Deanne Brown, adviser Westlake High School, Austin, TX Good photographs often result from behind-the-scenes moments. This photographer’s winning shot is one of those moments. Getting close to the group of athletes allows a sense of being in the middle of this group’s fun and spirited moment. The photographer brings the viewer into a hallway by looking beyond the sidelines and action.

230

Photo Contest


2nd Place: “Tears and Rain� John Dukes, photographer; Clint Smith, adviser Texas High School, Texarkana, TX While game action is a big part of sports coverage, reaction is often more emotional. The embrace of these students shows a shared emotion at the conclusion of a game. Holding each other tightly is suggested by the touching embrace. An outstretched arm seems to reach in to offer additional support, a moment shared by all of the participants.

Photo Contest

231


3rd Place: “Spell It Out� Parker Pamplin, photographer; Margaret Sorrows, adviser Bryant High School, Bryant, AR Shooting from a low angle with a wide-angle lens, this photographer showcases school spirit. Yelling with upstretched arms, the girls show support for their team, spelled out by their decorated shirts. The low angle and tight crop give the photograph power and a beautiful blue sky background without distraction.

232

Photo Contest


4th Place: “Game Time” Samantha Madar, photographer; Cindy Irish, adviser St. Johns High School, St. Johns, MI The worm’s-eye point of view in this image makes the viewer feel the emotion and motion of this pre-game ritual. The slow shutter speed used by the photographer allows the motion to blur slightly. The low angle places the action against a sky filled with twilight and gives the moment strong power.

“Teacher’s Torments” Briella Bartholomew, photographer; Lea Greene, adviser Albertus Magnus High School, Bardonia, NY

Two rows of people divide this scene of students at a cookout. The foreground student’s interaction with her friend and her food provide a focal point for the image. Repetition of people, shapes and colors reinforces the composition.

Shooting from a low and close angle, the photographer captured a teacher being a good sport with two of his students. Even, natural light makes this photo’s illumination consistent across the image.

“Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice” Bridget Bennett, photographer; Jeff Kocur, adviser Hopkins High School, Minnetonka, MN From the far end of the table, the photographer shoots a classroom scene of a student working on an assignment.

“Hats Off” Heather Ellis, photographer; Clint Smith, adviser Texas High School, Texarkana, TX The strong vertical crop adds to the power of this image showing graduates in the traditional ritual of tossing their graduation caps. The photographer’s low angle and vertical camera position enabled the sky-borne caps to be framed above the graduates’ heads.

“Campus Clean-Up Day” Becky Jegier, photographer; Erika Bowen, adviser Providence High School, Charlotte, NC On the same level as the subject, the photographer did a great job of placing the subject in the foreground. The subject’s intense concentration adds interest. Her arm frames the secondary subject in the background.

“Meredith” Sidney Hollingsworth, photographer; Deanne Brown, adviser Westlake High School, Austin, TX A portrait of a beaming graduate is effectively composed by the photographer who filled the frame with her face showcased by her hand displaying her graduation ring.

Holland Rine, photographer; Lori Weickert, adviser Gulf Breeze High School, Gulf Breeze, FL Taking advantage of the scene’s beautiful bright colors, the photographer shows a street scene of strong pictorial interest, adding interest with the camera angle.

“America on Ice” Kimber Huffotutler, photographer; Mike Jadwin, adviser Paragould High School, Paragould, AR

This exercise in combining words with image using computer software creates an intriguing portrait. The expression in the eyes and the tilt and angle of the head make this a strong portrait underlying the words.

Weather conditions often make for great shooting. This rural scene’s focus on the frozen American flag provides a strong focal point, the only real source of color in the image. The placement of the flag in the frame’s left thirds point allows the frozen fence to become a strong line leading to the flag. Photo Contest

Honorable Mention “Homecoming Happiness”

“Clarity”

Brittney Holbrook, photographer; Peggy Ligner, adviser Coronado High School, El Paso, TX

Leah Rachel Von Essen, photographer; George Mazzeo, adviser Holmdel High School, Holmdel, NJ

Using selective color on the flowers, this photographer captured a beaming homecoming queen sharing a moment with a fellow honoree. The photographer did a nice job of isolating this moment from other homecoming activities by moving in close and filling the frame.

Selected areas of the picture display a variety of techniques altered by computer software in this image. The relatively unaltered girl in the right thirds point provides a strong subject. The soft colors of the image add to the strong, ethereal feeling.

“The New Foster” Zach Pezzillo, photographer; Lenda McGehee, adviser Seabury Hall, Makawao, HI A great shot of animals interacting. The worm’s-eye viewpoint of the photographer brings the viewer into the scene at eye level to the cats. The simple, consistent pattern of surface puts the pair in the focused middle ground area. The moment captured is compelling.

“Speak Love” Olivia Strohm, photographer; Marian Stofsick, adviser Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy, Cuyahoga Falls, OH Stark, white stage make-up dramatizes the subject’s face fused to the right side of the frame.

“Capitola Pier” Jacob Meyberg, photographer; Alana Abatecola, adviser Willow Glen Middle School, San Jose, CA Under a pier, this photographer found a study in weathered wood affected by its exposure to the elements. The unending repetition of the pier supports leads the viewer through the frame from foreground to vanishing point using good depth of field.

“Untitled” Josh Martindale, photographer; Crystal Fowler, adviser Buford High School, Buford, GA Walking into the light in this tunnel, the subject’s dark clothing intersects with the exact center of the light. His outstretched arms seem to reach to the walls with their symmetrical handrails disappearing into the light. The shadow on the floor adds interest as does the writing on his shirt.

“The Drizzled Sand” Hunter Booth, photographer; Marsha Lott, adviser Ebenezer Middle School, Rincon, CA A formation in sand on a beach shows texture through the side light pattern. Placed at the left thirds point, the sand formation’s uneven texture contrasts nicely with the smoothness of the sand surrounding it. The pool of water in the center adds a focal point.

Honorable Mention “Day Dreaming” “Step-Siblings Arm Wrestling | Boys vs. Girls” Madison Obermeyer, photographer; Mary Patrick, adviser Maize South Middle School, Wichita, KS Muscles in the girl’s arm highlight this arm-wrestling event between two students. The photographer’s angle at eye level and in front of the subjects allows their grasped hands to occupy the foreground while their arms provide leading lines to their faces. The use of flash isolates the scene from its background.

Paige Duncan, photographer; Bonnie McClelland, adviser Washington Waldorf School, Bethesda, MD Shot from above, this photo shows a variety of winter wear with heads positioned in a circle. Each face holds interest through similar expressions and facial features.

“Santez in Straw” Hannah Holder, photographer; Bruce Fowler, adviser Ola Middle School, McDonough, GA Beautifully shot through a foreground unfocused by shallow depth of field, this horse is veiled by a foreground of warm, golden color. The horse seems to be posing for the photographer, with its focused face peering through the veil and his body’s form visible beyond. The pattern of white on the horse’s face adds interest.

“The Right Angle” Reina Zamora, photographer; Lori Duncan, adviser White Pine Middle School, Saginaw, MI A protractor provides an appropriately literal frame for this classroom shot. The warm color of the protractor works effectively for its primary foreground position in the picture. The photographer placed the subject at the right thirds point showcasing her face, pencil and book.

“Race to the Top” Kayla Paige Whitt, photographer; Deborah Niehaus, adviser Bethesda Christian Academy, Durham, NC A climbing wall creates an interesting subject for this photographer. The horizontal pattern of the wall and the diagonal support board contrasts with the vertical lines of the climbers. The orange bandanas create color interest, as does the left climber’s face away from the wall.

“Wait for It” Hannah Adams, photographer; Bruce Fowler, adviser Ola Middle School, McDonough, GA The photographer’s position—both to the side and extremely close to this subject—makes this a winner. A fast shutter speed stopped the water drop from the bottle, which also leads to the subject’s mouth. The strong red color of the bottle connects to the lips.

“3:45!” Jordan Ayers, photographer; Bruce Fowler, adviser Ola Middle School, McDonough, GA This photo is full of great geometry with squares, triangles, lines and patterns. The symmetry of the two open doors with two sets of students provides additional interest in the jumps and expressions of the gleeful students.

“Walking in the Arms of Friends” Sofia Pisacane, photographer; Kari Smith, adviser Diegueño Middle School, Encinitas, CA Arm-in-arm, these girls’ close relationship is showcased, even without showing their faces.

Sasha Sobol (Vera Sobol), photographer; Mary Lou McKenna, adviser Egan Junior High School, Los Altos, CA Frozen in peak action clearing the hurdle, this photograph shows a sports moment hard to see during the actual event. The use of black and white works well with the hurdler’s dark clothing nicely contrasted against the lighter indoor arena’s background.

“Champions in the Dugout” Taylor Reed, photographer; Bruce Fowler, adviser Ola Middle School, McDonough, GA Bathed in side sunlight, this photo’s close angle shows an intimacy with the player, clearly focused on the game in a dugout. Her intense, green eyes pick up the color of her uniform. Her hands frame her face and helmet. The shadow areas keep the focus on the subject.

“Sunlit Beauty” Gilberto Ruiz-Ortega, photographer; Tamra McCarthy, adviser James Enochs High School, Modesto, CA Natural side light evenly illuminates this beautiful portrait. The light showcases her skin, hair and sweater. Her eyes looking to the side show lots of white and add highlights to her green eyes.

“Window to the Soul” Suzy Sarabok, photographer; Valerie Orwig, adviser Pine-Richland High School, Gibsonia, PA This picture proves you don’t have to show the whole face to get a compelling portrait. With the left eye and most of the mouth cropped out, it’s still easy to see warmth in the expression in this portrait. The tilt of the head into the frame also adds personality.

“Mix Master” Hannah Kunz, photographer; Deanne Brown, adviser Westlake High School, Austin, TX Shot with a fisheye lens, an extreme wide-angle lens, the photographer captured a true environmental portrait that showcases this artist’s space. Warm light casts a golden glow on the subject from the light seen partially at the top of the frame. The subject’s comfortable pose adds to the appeal of the image.

“Lost in Thought” Zach Pezzillo, photographer; Lenda McGehee, adviser Seabury Hall, Makawao, HI Caught in a moment of tranquility, this subject is lit from side light, which provides good shadows, highlights and textures for the portrait.

“D’Marqui” Stephanie Hallas, photographer; Steve Ward, adviser Waynesville High School, Waynesville, MO An intense connection with the photographer works well in this engaging portrait. The subject’s warm-toned clothing surrounds his face. The angle of the fence leads to the subject, placed strongly at the left thirds point.

“I Just Want to Be a Star” Brandon Neris, photographer; Molly Buckley, adviser MacArthur High School, Lawton, OK Shot with a tilted horizon, the photographer’s use of an empty field provides a clean, simple and contrasting background for this artist’s portrait.

Amy Hecht, photographer; Pam Holben, adviser Providence Academy, Johnson City, TN A dark, clean background provides an excellent setting for this peak soccer action.

“Chris Bull—Sports Action 2” Chris Bull, photographer; Cindy Todd, adviser Westlake High School, Austin, TX The photographer used a fast shutter speed to stop the forward motion of the swimmer’s arm through the water. The arc of his arm provides a nice frame for his face. The warm skin tones of the subject contrast with the water’s cool tones.

“The Final Kick” Katie Cowart, photographer; Margaret Sorrows, adviser Bryant High School, Bryant, AR With a line of spectators watching, this cross country runner’s determined expression is perfectly frozen by a fast shutter speed, which also freezes his stride off the ground and the motion of his arms in air.

Honorable Mention “Breath” Ruth Arnold, photographer; Clint Smith, adviser Texas High School, Texarkana, TX

“I’ll Get Him” Ashley Herb, photographer; Robin Himes, adviser Eureka High School, Eureka, KS

The photographer gives this swimmer room in the foreground to move into the frame with her movement in the water. A fast shutter speed stopped the swimmer in mid-movement and resulted in a great expression as the swimmer takes a breath.

Calf roping is a fast-moving rodeo event that requires a fast shutter speed to stop the action. This photographer’s position in the arena, combined with a long telephoto lens, brought that action into the camera as the rider’s lasso is perfectly framed over the calf.

“Splash” Kory Guzman, photographer; Erin Dencker, adviser Ft. Madison High School, Ft. Madison, IA Splashes of cool, blue water surround the subject as she throws her head through the water.

“Hand and Hand” Jamie Nakagawa, photographer; Casey Nichols, adviser Rocklin High School, Rocklin, CA The photographer nailed this moment of syncopation from a pep squad’s formation during a halftime show.

“Mrs. Baltimore Crabs” Gabriel Fierro, photographer; Christina Bryant, adviser East Bakersfield High School, Bakersfield, CA

“Next Generation” Lindsey Downs, photographer; Amy Schmeitz, adviser Plymouth High School, Plymouth, IN

The warm, yellow color of this lead singer’s dress helps make her the focal point of this theater production shot. Framed by the darker, cooler tones of the chorus and the photographer’s low position, she appropriately dominates the moment.

The photographer appropriately chose a low angle and left thirds point placement for this tender interaction between a player and a child. The almost-touching hands, the orange color of both participants and the hairdos add interest in their repetition.

“The Speech” Jimmy Hoyt, photographer; Kayleen Stevens, adviser Kiowa County High School, Greensburg, KS Photographers should take their cameras into behind-the-scenes settings like locker rooms and other places viewers can’t go.

“Class Competition” Jenna Cossette, photographer; Sarah Cole, adviser Orono High School, Long Lake, MN In the lower thirds of the horizon, the hands smearing shaving cream frame the subject’s face.

“Star Stepper” Sidney Hollingsworth, photographer; Deanne Brown, adviser Westlake High School, Austin, TX

This is a quintessential photo of a homecoming queen. At just the moment she’s crowned, with mouth in wide surprise, surrounded by a bouquet of red roses, framed by the crowning moment…it doesn’t get any better than this. Shallow depth of field blurring the background adds to the photo’s impact.

Shooting into a mirror, the photographer went behind the scenes to show the busy dressing room before a stage production. The extreme side angle allowed the photographer to literally create a mirror image of the girl’s action. The stage lights above her head provide side illumination.

“Caution” Jessica Good, photographer; Katherine Conerton, adviser Forreston High School, Forreston, IL Yellow caution tape and a stark expression make this portrait interesting, especially the subject’s extremely close position in the foreground. The subjects in the background seem somewhat oblivious to the subject of this portrait.

“Brand New Pencil” Taylor Havens, photographer; Holly VanHootegem, adviser Bushnell-Prairie City High School, Bushnell, IL

256

A nicely cropped, extreme close-up highlights the subject’s eyes, but adds interest with the colorful pencil she holds on her lip. The background repeats the color of the pencil without distraction in its shallow focus. The backward glance of the subject is also an effective pose. Photo Contest


“Cat Scratch Fever” Jenna Mathis, photographer; Mary White, adviser Andrews High School, Andrews, NC

“Newsworthy” Leila Farhood, photographer; Cindy Todd, adviser Westlake High School, Austin, TX

The photographer’s wide-angle lens shows a sea of cheering fans in various costumes and poses from a low angle in front of the crowd. The depth of field captures lots of participants’ faces from front to back, all in focus.

“Spin Out”

“Color Splash”

Karen Chang, photographer; Ed Tompkins, adviser Mid-Pacific Institute, Honolulu, HI

Lara Mansfeld, photographer; Stacy Avonivici, adviser Aptos High School, Aptos, CA

The diagonal positions and colors of the three surfboards and their reflections in the water add interest to this beach scene with its horizontally repeating waves and patterns of light. Keeping the horizon on the top thirds point gives the photograph lots of foreground.

Photo Contest Design Contest

2011 Grand Prize

Chad Papineau Shawnee Mission East High School, Prairie Village, KS C. Dow Tate, adviser Prize: Laptop computer with Adobe Creative Suite software Content-driven design results in highly sophisticated approach for a feature on influential teachers. Images of the teachers are printed behind a chalkboard illustration with students looking toward the larger-than-life educators. A transparent block behind the story increases its readability. The font used for the primary headline is electronically altered so it appears to be outlined in chalk, further establishing a verbal/visual connection.


First Place Design Hayden Wolfe St. Mark’s School of Texas, Dallas, TX Ray Westbrook, adviser Prize: Adobe Creative Suite software The dramatic, black-and-white, cut-outbackground photos, grab reader attention and prevent a content-packed modular design from looking crowded or blocky. Skilled typographic design allows for headline designs that look different, yet consistent. Thin rule lines and light touches of green accent the content

Second Place Design Tucker Love Shawnee Mission North High School, Overland Park, KS Becky Tate, adviser Prize: Adobe InDesign software Bright pink shades, pulled from the dominant photo, provides a content-appropriate background for a playful spread on the school’s performance of Hairspray. A fun interactive feature asks the reader to match the wig to the actor’s head. The angle for the headline, inspired by the hairspray graphic, guides eyeflow across the spread.

Third Place Design Madeline Franz Whitfield School, St. Louis, MO Sara Ringe, Cara Foster, advisers Prize: Digital camera To visually represent the “continuum” concept, wavy horizontal lines gently guide the reader across this spread and onto the next spread—creating a visual continuum. Obviously, the remaining letters of the oversized headline appear on the next spread. Designing a visual “package” of two spreads using depth design is the ultimate in skilled content packaging.

Honorable Mention Design Erin Barents Arrowhead Christian Academy, Redlands, CA Crystal Kazmierski, adviser Verbal and visual elements combine effectively to create a dynamic academics spread. The storytelling dominant photo pulls the reader directly into the center of the spread and then into the headline and story presentation. Additional photos are clearly secondary to the dominant and black-and-white is strategically used for a single photo in each collection. Graphics along the top and the bottom of the spread reinforce the spread’s content and the yearbook’s theme.

Honorable Mention Design Max Brown Sims Middle School, Pace, FL Stacy Grice, adviser This high-energy spread appeals to the middle school audience. The spiral-notebook graphics coordinate with the theme. Narrow columns, called “In the Margins,” along the left and right page edges provide creative opportunities for content display. The dominant photo, a cut-out-background image, and the spread’s main headline make a powerful visual team.

Honorable Mention Design Katie Cox Shawnee Mission East High School, Prairie Village, KS C. Dow Tate, adviser The primary headline and the dominant image make a powerful team on this high-energy spread. An ultra-thin rule line connects the primary headline with the secondary headline and feature story on the opposite page. The all-caps used for the primary headline create a stark contrast to the primary headline’s lowercase presentation. The “Backstage Pass” content module on the right takes the reader behind the scenes and reveals traditions that take place before the curtain rises.

The powerful dominant photo is carefully placed on the right page to guide the reader into the headline and feature story and to the nine smaller action photos. A fun content module personalizes the coverage by showing how the athletes express themselves by their swim caps.

Honorable Mention Design April Hernandez Burges High School, El Paso, TX Patricia Monroe, adviser A panoramic photo is an appropriate backdrop for a spread capturing the diversity and beauty of El Paso. The feature story is displayed in a visually calm area so the background photo doesn’t make it difficult to read. Smaller photos, with captions, are grouped together for easy reading on the lower portion of spread.

Honorable Mention Design Kara Hoganson Kirkwood High School, Kirkwood, MO Mitch Eden, adviser It took a lot of skill for this designer to showcase both the JV and Freshman baseball teams on the same spread in a visually unified presentation that manages to highlight each team. The dominant photo and the red accent color visually unify the presentation. On both pages, the design delivers content in a highly personal way by profiling individual players. Cut-out-background photos are used for the JV players and trading cards are used for the freshman.

Honorable Mention Design Ellie Jones Shawnee Mission East High School, Prairie Village, KS C. Dow Tate, adviser A full-spread dominant photo provides the foundation for this powerful design. A shade of pink, pulled from the photo, provides a vibrant accent color. Creative visual thinking results in filling the letters of the dominant word of the primary headline with graphic pink lines inspired by the tennis racket.

Honorable Mention Design Hayley Lane Redondo Union High School, Redondo Beach, CA Mitch Ziegler, adviser These powerful images, including a full-spread bleed background photo, take the reader out on the waves at sunrise. The headline is a textbook example of effective primary and secondary design and placement. And for unity, the typographic and graphic approach of the main headline is echoed in the content module on the lower right. To increase readability, a transparent box lightens the photo behind the feature story.

Honorable Mention Design Jacob Maskiewicz University City High School, San Diego, CA Jim McCarthy, adviser By filling the letters of the primary headline with a portion of the dominant image, the photo and the headline become a powerful verbal and visual unit. A wide variety of photo shapes and sizes add interest while the bold graphics add personality.

Honorable Mention Design Will McNamara St. Mark’s School of Texas, Dallas, TX Ray Westbrook, adviser A lowercase “m” graphic becomes a focal point because of its extreme size while the small “Missing Mom” primary headline commands attention because it whispers. The secondary headline unifies the presentation while adding specific information. A strip of three photos guides the reader into the full-page bleed photo.

Honorable Mention Design Megan Skillman Loudoun Valley High School, Purcellville, VA Martha Akers, adviser A successful modular design requires a strong dominant module serving as a center of visual interest. In this case, the dominant module contains the dominant photo, the spread’s main headline and story. Color is used to emphasize the dominant module while adding to the spread’s reader appeal. Secondary modules are large enough for impact, but are clearly subordinate to the dominant.

Honorable Mention Design Duncan Smart St. Mark’s School of Texas, Dallas, TX Ray Westbrook, adviser Making a verbal/visual connection, the primary headline and the dominant photo team up to communicate to the reader. The primary headline’s oversized first letter nicely frames the primary and secondary headline. The dominant photo pulls the reader onto the spread; the eye then travels to the primary and secondary headline and finally the drop-cap completes the visual journey by acting as an entry point into the story.

YTO Design Contest

Malia Elliott Green Valley High School, Henderson, NV Julie Goldstein, adviser Prize: Laptop computer Dark, black and blue grunge graphics are appropriate for introducing the yearbook’s “Inked” theme. The colorful, cut-out-background photo jumps out against the graphics. An enlarged first-word, also in a grunge font, is an effective reader-entry point into the text on the winter divider.


First Place Design Jessica Chalfant Dos Pueblos High School, Goleta, CA John Dent, adviser Prize: Digital camera The colorful and powerful dominant photo not only serves as a magnetic entry point onto the spread, it guides the reader directly into the secondary photos and the headline and story presentation. Tight spacing allows the designer to create a cluster of related photos with the captions to the outside. A partial-cut-out-background photo adds dimension to a smaller photo without giving it too much visual emphasis. As a final touch, the “Out of the Blue� headline connects the verbal message to the visuals.

Second Place Design Corrie Van Tuyl Tesoro High School, Las Flores, CA Shannon Sybirski, adviser Prize: Apple iPod Touch A color-coded, vertical folio bar runs along the right edge of each spread, becoming a visual cool tool. The heavy black bar from the folio is echoed in the photo strip. This presentation features 25 students with identifications. A high-energy approach to modular design is effective because a large module on the left provides a focal point.

Third Place Design Julie Milliken Julia Milliken Palos Verdes Estates, CA Susan Pavelka, adviser A high-energy, action-packed photo makes an outstanding selection for a full-page dominant photo. The strong vertical orientation of the photo is contrasted effectively by a horizontal line displaying the scoreboard across the bottom in a graphic way. Typographic style is achieved by using a lowercase, serif font for primary headlines contrasted with an uppercase, sans serif font for the secondary.

Honorable Mention Design Ellie Daw Niwot High School, Niwot, CO Becky Feiran, adviser Circular graphics skillfully accent this spread. The circular photos, printed in black-and-white, provide visual contrast to the colorful rectangular photos in the horizontal photo strip. The photo collections at the top are unified by using tight spacing. A large, storytelling image on the left provides a powerful focal point.

Honorable Mention Design Caroline Deisely Lovett School, Atlanta, GA Perry McIntyre, adviser Blue, a school color pulled from the photos, visually unifies this content-heavy sports presentation. A variety of short stories, action photos, scoreboard and team photo complete the verbal and visual coverage of the football season. A dramatic photo along the left edge adds high-impact.

Honorable Mention Design Morgan Heidt Providence High School, Charlotte, NC Ericka Bowen, adviser A strong focal-point image is a critical component for any storytelling design. This outstanding design is build entirely around a colorful and visually interesting dominant photo. Small images are slightly inset into the dominant photo without distracting from its focal point. A fairly clean and simple background, allows the story and the headline to be overprinted on the photo without readability suffering. Secondary modules expand coverage while allowing the centerpiece photo module to remain the star of the spread.

Honorable Mention Design Brent Kirkland Tesoro High School, Las Flores, CA Shannon Sybirski, adviser Cut-out-background photos create a high-energy collage on this divider spread that reinforces the yearbook’s personal “jOURney” theme. The interesting cut-out shape of the photo montage contrasts the modular text block on the bottom. A background image covers the spread and is effective because it doesn’t detract from the content or make the text difficult to read.

Honorable Mention Design Susan Krikava Mounds Park Academy, St. Paul, MN KaTrina Wentzel, adviser This design features a lot of photos, but still looks organized and appealing. The dominant photo, placed on the right page to strategically guide the reader into the center, provides a strong focal point. A variety of modular photo shapes, combined with a diversity of photo content, encourage the reader to study each photo. Tight spacing is used to tighten the photo presentation.

Honorable Mention Design Courtney Martin Southern Lee High School, Sanford, NC Wendy Bryan, adviser Selective color adds impact to the playful, black-and-white photos of the yearbook staff. As a graphic accent and reader service, the photo captions are displayed in the color that coordinates with its photo. The headline design uses two fonts, different capitalization patterns and color to achieve visual contrast.

Honorable Mention Design Rachel Mason Coronado High School, Henderson, NV Nancy Thompson, adviser A picture strip, running along the top, not only gets a lot of students onto the design, it helps unify the pages into a spread. Text is presented in small, easy-to-read segments including expanded captions and a Top 10 list. The teal accent color unifies the design without overpowering.

Honorable Mention Design Melissa Poellinger Ashwaubenon High School, Aswaubenon, WI Emma Slowinski, adviser A horizontal color bar contains the headline and unifies the design as it runs diagonally across the left and the right pages. The pause, play, forward and reverse icons accent the content and coordinate with the yearbook’s concept. The design features a lot of photographs without looking crowded.

Honorable Mention Design Ryle Rasmussen Hudson High School, Hudson, IA Joletta Yoder, adviser The “Hudson” headline combines with a collection of photographs to become the dominant element on the spread. The headline letters are filled with a graduated color treatment that coordinates with the black-and-white photographs that feature selective color. Cut-out-background photos add dimension to the otherwise modular spread.

YTO Design Contest


Honorable Mention Design Joshua Richardson Providence High School, Charlotte, NC Ericka Bowen, adviser A creative module presents the results of a survey by using 70 small photos showing the faces of the respondents. Vertical rails of expanded spacing are used to visually isolate the survey module and also to frame the photo collection in the center of the spread. Red is used sparingly to accent modules and highlight names in the stories and captions.

Honorable Mention Design Sade Stribling Holmes Middle School, Livonia, MI Russ Keberly, adviser A photo strip running across the top features dozens of photos and introduces the color palette for the spread. The colors are repeated strategically across the spread without overpowering the content. A strong modular design features a variety of verbal and visual storytelling techniques grouped around a dominant photo.

Honorable Mention Design Kavi Suri Dos Pueblos High School, Goleta, CA John Dent, adviser Groups of three photos, unified by tight spacing, create a visually interesting design. Following one of the key principles of design, one of the photo collections is significantly larger and serves as a dominant element. Captions for each photo collection are placed to the outside.

Honorable Mention Design Judith Tran Green Valley High School, Henderson, NV Julie Goldstein, adviser Modular design, teamed with three levels of spacing, allows this spread to be packed with coverage without looking overcrowded. By using tight spacing within the modules, related photos are visually linked together. Expanded spacing lightens the design by separating the modules. The bold, black backgrounds and graphics coordinate with the yearbook’s theme.

Honorable Mention Design Betty Wang Western Canada Senior High School Calgary, AL Donna Kelly, adviser A creative photo illustration, featuring students holding up letters to represent each day of the week, makes a dynamic and theme-related visual on a divider spread. The yellow letters jump off the black page. A transparent box is used behind the text to increase its readability.

Honorable Mention Design Zari Zapinsky Coronado High School, Henderson, NV Nancy Thompson, adviser A huge dominant photo on this opening spread, begins the yearbook and its “Ten & Then� theme presentation in a dramatic way. Red and blue accent colors are used for vertical and horizontal accent lines. An ampersand, displayed in a pale gray tint, adds dimension to the headline presentation. A raised initial letter serves as an effective reader-entry point into the detailed opening copy.

My favorite aspect of working on the yearbook is design. I love seeing single elements come together to create an amazing spread. I enjoy changing around modules and creating something that will catch the readers’ eye.

COURTNEY DAVID co-editor-in-chief James Bowie High School Austin, TX

My favorite yearbook memory is going to workshops with all of the editors. We always play this game where a Jostens representative says a random item and if anyone has it they have to run and take it up to the representative for a prize. Our group of editors always sits at the very front of the room and we put a bunch of random items in our bags just for this game. We always end up winning a lot of the prizes. After high school, I will be attending Baylor University

in Waco, TX to major in nursing. Once I get my bachelor’s degree, I want to either be a neonatal nurse or continue my education in the nursing field to become a nurse practitioner.

My favorite aspect of working on the yearbook is an idea from dream to design. I like seeing how all the pieces will fit together to capture the story of our year.

SERIANA MORGAN editor-in-chief Battle Ground High School Battle Ground, WA

My favorite yearbook memory is when our photo editor, Shawn Speer, made it to Regionals for wrestling. He had a shirt from the University of Florida that said “Fear The Spear” and whenever he would wear it he’d always say how he wished that he had a shirt with spear spelled his way: speer. My adviser and I made him a T-shirt and buttons for his friends and family to wear at the competition that said “Fear the Speer.” We developed the theme and logo and put it into action. He was so excited and touched that we would take the time to do something like that for him. Now he’s on his way to the State Competition. After high school, my plans are to pursue the very popular

major: Undecided. I’m only a junior. I do know that my future job will have something to do with photography, design and working with people. Those are all the elements of yearbook production that I love and my future career will have to utilize those skills.

My favorite aspect of working on the yearbook is designing unique templates that work well with the yearbook theme. Sometimes I design pages and realize a photo needs to be moved elsewhere to make the spread stand out. I love being able to use my creativity so that others can enjoy it as well.

MORGAN BARNES editor Buffalo Island High School Monette, AR

Yearbook helped me open my eyes to see things that are right in front of me. When I become a preschool teacher, I will need to look beyond what each child shows me. The children may be capable of more than what they show, just as in journalism. I used to look through magazines just for the pictures. However, now when I look at a picture, I know there are more details than what the photo provides. After high school, I plan to attend Arkansas Northeastern

College in Blytheville to obtain my associate’s degree in early childhood education. Then I will transfer to Arkansas State University to complete my studies. I will then pursue my dream of teaching preschool children.

My favorite aspect of working on the yearbook is getting to design. I love being able to look through all different types of magazines and websites and pull inspiration from them, along with objects in the world around us. To take all of these various elements and then sit down and collaborate with your fellow editors and adviser makes for a very fun and rewarding process, with the end product being a unique design you can all call your own. My favorite yearbook memory is when the hard-backed, mock copy of the cover arrived this year. It’s so beautiful to see the cover “in the flesh,” and watch how this original seed that was planted during the summer and watered profusely is now being branched out into a whole book full of stories and memories. The cover is what encases and protects these recollections, and perfectly brings your book full circle, being the first and last image that you see as you read it. After high school, I hope to attend the University of Notre

Dame and double in chemical engineering and graphic design!
