Radford University multimedia producer Jaslyn Gilbert was honored with the "Best of Show" award at the 2013 Annual Print Competition held by the University Photographers' Association of America (UPAA).
Gilbert received the award at the UPAA’s annual symposium for her photo essay featuring RU’s Wilderness Institute.
"I am very honored to have received this award on behalf of Radford University,” Gilbert said. “I participated in the judging process and saw hundreds of amazing photos from all over the country. To find out this photo essay was scored by my peers as the top among all photos is truly an honor. I feel very privileged to have the opportunity to capture such wonderful educational moments at Radford University."
The contest is the UPAA's premier competition, drawing upon a photographer's creativity, presentation and technical skills. University photographers around the United States submitted their work to this competition.
