Two of John Starkey’s photos recently won second place in the Texas Press Association’s 2013 Texas Better Newspaper Contest – News Photos. The photos won in Division 7 for medium to large weeklies.
Judged together the first photo was taken at the Nasher Sculpture Center during the 8th annual Savor Dallas event and was printed in the April 7, 2012 issue of the Rambler Newspaper. The second photo was taken at Trinity View Park during Hero Rush and was printed in the June 23, 2012 issue of the newspaper.
According to the judges’ comments, “Both submissions show a lot of expertise, but it is the very inventive “Savor Dallas” photo that puts this entry in second place.”
The staff of Rambler Newspapers congratulates John on his award winning photography.
