(ATHENS, GA, February 11, 2017) Mike Tighe, a photojournalist at CTV News in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, has been awarded the NPPF/NPPA Advanced Storytelling Workshop Award of $1,000 and the registration fee for the workshop.
The Advanced Storytelling Workshop is a program is designed for experienced TV and newspaper photojournalists, reporters and video journalists – anyone who tells stories with moving pictures, sound and words. It is intended to be the next step after the NPPA News Video Workshop.
Tighe has been a member of NPPA a relatively short time, but has taken advantage of the association’s training events.
“I joined the NPPA in September 2015 and attended my first NPPA News Video Workshop in Norman, Oklahoma that March,” Tighe said. “I loved it so much I will be attending again this year. I followed that up with attending the South East Storytellers Workshop that June in Atlanta. The people that I have met and the friends I have made because of my involvement in the NPPA and these workshops has been the most rewarding and inspiring part of my career!
The Advanced Storytelling Workshop will be held April 2-7, 2017 at Texas State University in San Marcos, TX.
